ABB SCADAvantage™ provides a standard control methodology across the enterprise to automate workflows and optimize day-to-day operations, helping oil and gas companies maximize uptime and safety and minimize capital and life cycle costs.
Unlike traditional SCADA systems, SCADAvantage uses a high-performance, real-time relational Database Management System to enhance data integrity and data retrieval. This makes SCADAvantage unique in the market and significantly faster than typical SCADA databases.
SCADAvantage scales from small to large systems, allowing companies to extend and grow the system as their business grows. It is based on Microsoft technologies with open interfaces, such as ODBC and OPC, to allow customization and seamless integration of enterprise systems.
SCADAvantage also connects with many 3rd party systems and devices, including:
- Control Systems, Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and Flow Computers, Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs), Chromatographs
- Communications, networking and telecoms
- LV, MV and HV Electrical Equipment, Drives and Motors
SCADAvantage offers essential capabilities out of the box, including a high-performance historian, alarms and a polling engine. Additional capabilities, such as callout notifications and report scheduling can be added as needed.
