What is ClearSCADA?

ClearSCADA is a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. It comprises one or more ClearSCADA servers (see ClearSCADA Server). The server contains the database (configuration and data for each item on the system) and communicates with the other devices—outstations, PLCs, sensors and so on—that comprise your system. The Server typically monitors such devices and retrieves their data. The data is processed for use in ClearSCADA (for example, raw analog data might be scaled to a more meaningful range). If configured to do so, the Server can also send instructions (controls) to any of those devices, for example, to start a pump, or switch off a motor. Controls that are sent from the Server can be triggered automatically or manually.

Typically, you will access the Server’s data by logging on to a ClearSCADA Client. There are two types of ClearSCADA client:

Multiple ViewX and/or WebX clients can connect to a ClearSCADA server simultaneously.
