Facilities Monitoring & Management System Integrated System wide Element Management System that combines aspects of comprehensive system monitoring including:

  • SCADA – Alarm Management & Control
  • Electrical Supply Performance Monitoring (Power Qualities Issues – A basis to discuss with utility)
  • Energy and Load mapping (Energy & Cost Management / Energy Audit)
  • Facilities and Environment Condition Monitoring (Temperature & Humidity)
  • Thermographic Scanning
  • Security & Surveillance ( Door Access And CCTV)
  • Inventory Management


SCADA stands for Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition. The products are multi-tasking and are based upon a real-time database (RTDB) located in one or more servers.

The benefits one can expect from adopting a SCADA system for the control of experimental physics facilities can be summarized as follows:

  • A rich functionality and extensive development facilities. The amount of effort invested in SCADA product amounts to 50 to 100 p-years!
  • The amount of specific development that needs to be performed by the end-user is limited, especially with suitable engineering.
  • Reliability and robustness. These systems are used for mission critical industrial processes where reliability and performance are paramount.
  • Technical support and maintenance by the vendor.
