Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA)
SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a category of software application for process control to collect data in real time from remote locations. This controls equipment and process conditions. SCADA is used in power plants , oil and gas refineries, telecommunications, transportation, water supply and waste disposal , among others . In connection with SCADA and corresponding networks, one also speaks of critical infrastructures.
SCADA systems contain both hardware and software components. The hardware collects data and feeds it to a computer on which the SCADA software is installed. The computer then processes the data and presents it in due time. SCADA records all events and saves them in a log file on a hard drive or sends them to a printer. SCADA warns when the conditions become dangerous and triggers an alarm.
SCADA Systems | A Combination of Hardware and Software
A SCADA system consists of various hardware and software components that are adapted to individual requirements, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and remote control terminals (RTUs). In principle, a SCADA system as an industrial control system provides several technologies. The result is a system that collects real-time data, monitors and processes it and, if necessary, is able to deliver control orders to a wide variety of components.
With SCADA, companies are able to control industrial processes locally and remotely and to interact centrally with components such as motors, pumps or sensors. Depending on the application goal, SCADA systems can comprise relatively simple or complex configurations and are suitable for use in a large number of different industries. They are highly flexible and adaptable and work under a wide variety of operating systems from Windows NT to UNIX or Linux.
SCADA Systems Control and Communicate with
⦁ networked machines and automation,
⦁ Process control systems,
⦁ Process control systems that use PLC and RTU,
⦁ ERP systems such as SAP PP or SAP PM / EAM as well as MES systems
⦁ Security systems and their processes.
As part of their tasks, SCADA systems ensure local machine safety as well as the safety of the process and control. This in turn has a positive effect on the system and production quality.
⦁ reduce costs with higher production quality,
⦁ increase system availability,
⦁ optimize system performance and
⦁ reduce maintenance costs by supporting total productive maintenance .
Overall, SCADA systems serve as central data sources for combining, processing and conveying various real-time data from connected systems. As a result, companies benefit from better visibility of their processes: The collected real-time data provide information on operating conditions, record long-term trends and identify improvement approaches. Data processing is made more efficient, downtimes are avoided, product quality is ensured and it is easier to make well-founded decisions.
SCADA is subject to continuous further development. This means that SCADA systems make processes more and more flexible and take on more and more routine tasks automatically. This not only relieves the user, but in addition to the positive effects increases the quality of industrial workplaces in all areas of application, for example through the use of user-defined reports for the individual automation of systems.
Communication of SCADA Systems
SCADA systems communicate with the connected components on the client level as well as on the field level. To do this, they use either continuous or burst communication. At the field level, SCADA systems communicate with the field devices using process controllers via field buses. The communication between humans and machines takes place on the client level, whereby humans primarily intervene in a controlling manner.
Public and private data networks such as DSL, Ethernet, telephone or cellular networks connect the two levels. As a result, SCADA systems use serial connections as well as TCP communication in complex network constructions. The connection of workstations for the visualization of data is nowadays increasingly done on a TCP basis via Ethernet or wireless networks.
The highest demands are placed on SCADA systems with regard to communication. In order to meet these requirements, SCADA systems master much more than the common standards such as OPC UA, various IEC protocols or Modbus and are easily able to communicate with proprietary systems and a wide variety of hardware.
Areas of Application of SCADA
As part of automation solutions, modern SCADA systems not only collect and monitor data produced on site, but also data from geographically distant production and operating sites or measuring points. The automated control of various components is also possible over long distances.
This property predestines SCADA systems for use in a wide variety of application areas. In addition to industrial production, complex distribution networks such as those of energy-generating companies benefit from the advantages of SCADA systems. This applies above all to energy suppliers, water purifiers and telecommunications facilities, with the SCADA systems in the distribution area mainly taking on a monitoring function. In this way, you can provide information about line pressures in pipe distribution systems or, as part of a smart grid, special measured values in order to optimally adapt the feed-in of electrical energy to the behavior of the consumer.
SCADA is used behind the scenes of numerous companies in the public and private sector and plays a central role in production data acquisition (BDE) and the control of operational processes. Companies are able to communicate system problems, avoid downtimes, maintain process efficiency and evaluate data for intelligent decisions.
The use of SCADA systems is suitable for a large number of different types of company, as their scope can range from simple configurations to complex installations with thousands of control loops, depending on requirements. Industries in which SCADA is often used include e.g. B
- Energy, oil & gas
- Water supply & sewage
- Food and beverage industry
- Automotive industry
- Transport & Infrastructure
- Smart city mobility & intelligent buildings
- Cross-industry applications
- SCADA is used for industrial and infrastructural processes as well as system-based building control technology:
- Industrial processes include manufacturing, processing, process control, power generation, or refining. These can run continuously, in batches, repeatedly or discreetly.
- Infrastructure processes are standard in the energy and transport sector and are also used in water supply, oil and gas pipelines and wind farms.
- Plant processes monitor and control heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems as well as energy consumption in buildings, airports, ships and space stations.
Advantages of SCADA Systems
SCADA systems offer companies numerous advantages for optimizing technical processes and for transparent data acquisition in automated facilities:
Ease of use : Thanks to the HMI interfaces, systems can be controlled quickly, easily and safely. This enables, for example, remote access or the simultaneous management of several machines.
Risk minimization : With the early detection of errors, SCADA systems can notify responsible employees in good time and point out problems. In addition, a system supported by predictive analytics also indicates possible risks before errors even occur and failures occur. In this way, the overall equipment efficiency ( OEE ) can be improved and the effort for maintenance or troubleshooting can be reduced.
Standardization : All relevant process data are bundled on a uniform platform, which means that users can easily get an overview. By using the various tools located on a central platform, the full potential of your systems can be efficiently exploited.
Data management : SCADA facilitates the acquisition, management, retrieval and analysis of operational data . B. Recordings are automatically saved in a central location. In addition, data transfer to connected MES or ERP systems is supported.
Transparency : The collection of real-time data and its convenient management via HMI interfaces ensure improved visibility of process flows. In addition, SCADA systems include tools for evaluating collected data and allowing reports to be created. This means that users have local and remote access to current information at any time.
Efficiency : With the help of automated actions, user-friendly tools and transparent data management, SCADA systems support the optimization of processes. This gives users various options for long-term process changes to improve operational efficiency.
Security Risks of SCADA Systems
SCADA systems prove their great strength especially in critical infrastructures and are therefore used in production plants as well as in distribution systems such as those operated by energy suppliers. As a result, SCADA systems are particularly attractive for threat actors.
The human machine interfaces (HMI) of a SCADA system, which are popular gateways for malware, are particularly risky. Since the goal of threat actors is usually the greatest possible and lasting damage, large logistics systems and production locations as well as energy suppliers are subject to a particularly high risk of falling victim to a successful attack. As a result, SCADA systems pose a particular challenge for a company’s IT.
If a company observes the following points, the risk is significantly reduced.
- SCADA software must never run on unpatched, outdated and therefore vulnerable systems.
- It is essential to implement guidelines for security governance, risk assessment and risk minimization as well as the necessary monitoring.
- Implement standards defined in IEC 62443 and ISO / IEC 27001.
- Segment the SCADA network using a SCADA security zone with a firewall and isolate it from the network.
- Access to the SCADA zone is only possible via user authentication and not via IP address.
- Monitoring of all SCADA protocols instead of the ports.
- Targeted checking of all traffic within the SCADA zone for threats such as exploits, botnets or malware.
- Close collaboration between IT, security and SCADA teams, as any change in the corporate structure can affect SCADA security.
- As an element of the critical infrastructure, prevention is the top priority for SCADA networks. This applies above all to the protection against zero-day malware such as Energetic Bear or Stuxnet.
- Continuous further training of the SCADA specialists imparts important knowledge about the protection of the SCADA network.
Implementing a SCADA system can bring significant benefits to companies. In advance, however, a well thought-out concept for the range of functions and the operational goals should be created, in which the following points, among others, are clarified:
- Definition of key figures and project goals so that exact requirements for the SCADA system are specified.
- System selection, decisions about new acquisitions or upgrading existing machines, integration of industrial protocols such as Modbus TCP / IP or PLC.
- PC requirements, definition of hardware requirements for efficient system monitoring, consideration of mobile devices for flexible remote access.
- Clarification of personnel requirements, consultation with relevant departments and involvement of those directly responsible.
- Elimination of security risks, establishment of recommended security standards.
