Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)

What is SCADA?

SCADA, or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, is a type of control system that is used to monitor and control industrial processes. It consists of hardware and software components that work together to collect data in real-time from various sensors, analyze it, and then make decisions based on that data.

SCADA systems are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, energy, water treatment, and transportation. They allow operators to remotely monitor and control processes from a centralized location, reducing the need for manual intervention and increasing efficiency.

Consulting Services for HF, VHF, & UHF SCADA Systems

The SCADA consulting services at Proximity Wireless are offered by experienced professionals who specialize in the design, implementation, and maintenance of SCADA systems. Our consultants have a deep understanding of the complex technologies involved in SCADA and can provide valuable insights and expertise to help businesses optimize their processes.

With HF, (High Frequency), VHF (Very High Frequency), and UHF (Ultra High Frequency) radio frequencies being commonly used for SCADA systems, it is important to have consultants who are knowledgeable in this area. High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency (VHF), and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) all pertain to the radio spectrum, each with its own distinct features.

HF, ranging from 3 to 30 MHz, is known for its long-range communication capabilities. The powerful nature of these frequencies allows signals to bounce off the Earth's ionosphere, achieving communication over vast distances, which is particularly beneficial for SCADA systems in remote areas.

VHF, on the other hand, covers frequencies from 30 to 300 MHz. These frequencies are utilized for their line-of-sight capabilities, where transmitters and receivers must be within sight of each other. VHF is typically used for SCADA systems in smaller industrial settings where long-distance communication isn't required.

Lastly, UHF ranges from 300 MHz to 3 GHz and is characterized by its short-wavelength properties. This allows for higher capacity data transmission and penetration through obstacles like buildings, making it ideal for SCADA systems in dense urban environments. Our SCADA consultants are well-versed in all these frequencies, ensuring optimal communication for your SCADA systems.

Our team at Proximity Wireless has extensive experience working with these frequencies and can provide guidance on the best approach for your specific needs.
