Are both HMI and SCADA related to each other? If yes, How?
HMI and SCADA are related to each other inasmuch as one or more HMIs are subsets or components of a SCADA system. Additionally, a DCS or Distributed Control System is very similar to a SCADA system, and may also use one or more HMIs as well. All these components are classes of, or describe parts of, an ICS or Industrial Control System, which is the general description of the Automation. In modern control systems, there is a great deal of overlapping technology and functionality between these two classes of ICSs. Continue reading →

An important aspect of developing a flexible SCADA or HMI application is determining the number of tags the project will require. In InduSoft Web Studio, license levels are broken down by tag count, which makes it an important variable in choosing the license required for the project. Deciding how many tags are required will be an important step in creating an HMI or SCADA application that includes all the necessary functionality and also leaves room for further development.
