Graduating from Penn State with a mechanical engineering degree has made it possible for Jake Newberger to apply his knowledge in various automation processes as a validation engineer. One of the applications Jacob Newberger frequently utilizes is SCADA.
Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are usually a part of ICS (industrial control system) configurations. The use of ICS is found in such industrial fields as pharmaceutical manufacturing, automotive production, wastewater treatment, and for the extraction of oil and natural gas.
Therefore, SCADA is considered a type of application that is used to monitor a system. As a result, the application features two primary elements. The system or equipment being monitored is the control and can take the form of a water system, traffic lights, or even a power plant. The second component consists of a network of smart technologies that work with the control or system to gauge and direct it.
As a result, the SCADA app is used to manage various types of industrial or networking processes, all of which are too complex to control by manual efforts alone.
