provides a simple, cost effective way to integrate MISSION
RTU data into that received from traditional SCADA
systems. You can deploy MISSION RTU's where needed and receive data just as with
traditional RTU's -- to your SCADA system MISSION will look
just like any other RTU.
Compliments Existing SCADA Systems
MISSION’s OPC server software allows customers to continue
using existing SCADA RTUs while adding MISSION RTUs to their
system. The OPC software transfers MISSION data into “tags”
that existing SCADA HMIs can read and build screens from.
Operators can’t tell the difference between MISSION RTU's and
existing RTU's. This allows for seamless additions or
MISSION systems are polled. The human machine interface (HMI)
polls the OPC driver which polls the OPC Enterprise servers for updates.
Safe and Secure Data
Data encryption is used throughout the MISSION system.
The design only allows for the customer’s software to
retrieve data on request and only from MISSION’s servers. No
other Internet traffic is allowed, period! For even higher
security, MISSION will set up a virtual private network (VPN)
between the customer’s computer and MISSION. This is “Bank
Grade” security and MISSION is happy to discuss the details
with customer’s IT departments.
Easy and Inexpensive to Implement
MISSION can set up an OPC customer in less than 30 minutes.
Download the software, enter the encrypted passwords and the
customer is up and running. The customer’s HMI
software team takes over from there, instructing the SCADA software to look
for “tag” changes in the MISSION database. Customers simply
pay a one-time license fee. Redundancy copies and upgrades are free.
There are no other charges or
recurring fees. Dealing with MISSION is easy.
Compatible With All MISSION RTU Models
The OPC server software can be used to get data from any of
MISSION’s RTU models. From the Manhole Monitor and
M-110 to the
always-on M-800, customers receive data as it happens. This
way customers use the models that best suit their needs and
Relay Control is Easy and Secure
The OPC software allows the HMI software team to turn on and
off MISSION RTU relays. Commands are typically executed in
just a few seconds, and confirmation “tags” prove it
happened. This allows the HMI software team to write
flexible, reliable control schemes.
Continue to Use MISSION’s Powerful Web Site
Since all MISSION RTU data traffic moves through MISSION’s
server centers, customers can still use MISSION’s
industry-leading web based HMI screens even though the data
is being immediately forwarded to the OPC server software. This means plant
operators see the screens they’re used to, while other
employees can view the data through MISSION’s web screens
from their offices or at home. Customer’s data can even be
viewed on cell phone screens or wireless PDA devices. It’s
like having a fully redundant SCADA system and database.
MISSION’s OPC server software is a perfect way for
MISSION to provide data to existing SCADA systems.
Now it is easy to add RTU's for fill-in, expansion, backup,
or to serve hard to reach sites.
