SCADA Training in Beijing

TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI logoOn December 12-23, 2005 in Beijing an Extended training for the process control system development in the integrated SOFTLOGIC-SCADA-MES-EAM-HRM software TRACE MODE 6 was held.

The SCADA training was attended by control engineers from China and Pakistan involved in the process control projects in power generation industry.

During the 2 weeks of training the trainees got strong knowledge in the theory and practice of control projects development in the TRACE MODE SCADA. New technologies of project creation, algorithm programming (as PC-based controllers as operator's PC), HMI, data logging, report generation, links with external DBMS, redundancy and debugging of every project's components were studied.

For such purpose a training project was developed based on controller with Embedded OS (MS Windows, operator's PC (MS Windows XP) and remote I/O modules connected to PC via serial port. The data exchange between controller and PCs were provided through Ethernet network. The English release of TRACE MODE 6.02.1 SCADA was used.

The trainees appreciated such TRACE MODE 6 SCADA and SOFTLOGIC features as the uniform project technology, project autobuilding, extensive I/O driver's library, ready-to-use resources, reliability and ease of the TRACE MODE use.

As a result, 12 control engineers were awarded with qualification "Certified TRACE MODE 6 Engineer".

AdAstrA plans to give more trainings for Chinese customers in 2006.

Pakistan Students Study Industrial Automation Technologies with SCADA TRACE MODE

A new laboratory practice on Supervisory control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) system development is launched for undergraduate students of Electrical Engineering at University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila (Punjab, Pakistan). University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila commonly referred to as UET Taxila is among the best engineering universities in Pakistan. The new practice is based on the TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI software.

The laboratory work was developed by  Director Technical, Creative Electronics & Automation in his MSc Research work under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Muhammad Ahmad Choudhry using the Omron's latest CJ1 Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), the Device-Net field bus and the latest version of TRACE MODE 6 SCADA/HMI software.

The author can share the experiments the files of SCADA as well as PLC and complete Experimentation & Training documentation. Please contact ...
