SCADA and PLCs

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) are systems that include various devices that allow users to monitor, control, and optimize industrial processes. SCADA systems can include different combinations of devices such as PLCs, Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), monitors , databases, and more, to solve automation challenges.

PLCs in SCADA systems play an integral role by acting as intermediary between field devices and the connected system. PLC can receive input from sensors and send commands to actuators based on predefined logic while also sending and receiving information from other devices within the system.

A basic SCADA system that can be seen in small-medium scale operations is an HMI-PLC system. This system allows an operator to monitor and respond to the real-time status of the PLC, and the corresponding field devices, by way of the HMI’s interface. In real world application this can give a water treatment operator the ability to remotely shut down a pump for maintenance, check the status of a sensor, and/or stop operation all together in the case of an emergency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a PLC?

A: A PLC is a programmable logic controller that enables control of sensors and actuators. PLCs are programmed mainly in Ladder Logic, an easy to learn visual programming language that resembles physical circuit diagrams of relay logic. However, PLCs can also be programmed in other languages such as Standard Text (ST), Function Block Diagram (FBD), or Sequential Function Chart (SFC). PLCs can be used by themselves in small applications or incorporated into a larger system for larger applications such as a production plant.

Q: How do Maple PLCs communicate with other devices and systems?

A: PLCs communicate with other devices, like HMIs or other PLCs, through communication protocols. The most common protocols used in the automation space are Modbus, Ethernet/IP, and Profibus. It is always important to check if your PLC can communicate with your other devices, otherwise a device that translates protocols, called a communication gateway, is required.

Q: What are some common applications of PLCs?

A: PLCs can be seen throughout the automation industry, from vehicle manufacturing to medical applications to traffic control. With the ability to receive inputs from various sensors and send commands to actuators like motors, valves, and solenoids, PLCs are used to enhance efficiency, safety, and precision in diverse industrial processes. Learn more about the systems PLCs are a part of on our SCADA page.

Q: How long does it take to learn how to program a PLC?

A: It depends. If you already have experience programming PLCs, switching to a new PLC software, like MapleLogic, will take roughly 2-3 hours to get familiar with the software and another few hours to understand all the features available. If you are brand new to PLC software and hardware it may take up to 40 hours to learn the basics of programming a PLC. This process can be streamlined by watching our PLC tutorial courses, learning how each operation works and is implemented, and what it looks like when downloaded to the physical PLC.

Q: What troubleshooting and debugging tools does MapleLogic have?

A: MapleLogic offers both hardware and software diagnostic tools. The front panel of all our PLCs and expansion modules have LED indicators for easy visual confirmation of an error. Within the software a dedicated troubleshooting window allows users to go online with their PLC and see a detailed list of errors, information such as location and possible reason for the errors is provided.

Q: Is a Maple Systems PLC the best choice for my application?

A: Maple Systems PLCs are great for customers working with small-medium sized applications that require extensive features, those found in high-end alternatives, but at a more affordable price point. With our products offering a range of training resources, comprehensive guides, and robust troubleshooting features, a person looking for a user-friendly and cost-effective control device can be confident they’ve made the right choice.
