HMI/SCADA Recommendations


Thread Starter

Gary Doel

What Allen Bradley configuration would you recommend for HMI/SCADA that has numerous sites that all communicate with one another via dedicated phone lines? Each site has to retrieve data from several other sites and relay all to a central site. Multiple dial up modems, to me should not be required when dedicated full time phone lines are present. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Make it vendor independent !!

Use IP routers with dial-on-demand over the routers. Connect the PLC to Ethernet like your HMI.

Check out M&R Automation at I believe they are using their AutomationX product to provide a very elegant solution for Petro-Canada where they are linking various sites across Canada.
