SCADA, the acronym for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, is the principle method of returning data to the host computer in flow computer installations. Typically conducted by radio frequency or other wireless technologies, SCADA installations can cover a single field or hundreds of square miles and many different fields.


With numerous vendors and multiple protocols for polling, sending, storing, and sorting data, operators may feel trapped by their current brand of RTU. The problems usually stem from the programming complexities of acquiring and interpreting data. Vinson has solutions for this situation which allow you to continue using your currently installed equipment while purchasing more versatile ROC, FloBossTM and ControWave flow computers for future installations. 

For example, Cygnet Software reduces the problem of different protocols tremendously through its Equipment Interface Engines. These software modules allow the user to combine many different brands of flow computers into a single SCADA system without the necessity of complicated programming changes.
