FAQ
Why do we need a SCADA protocol in IoT?

Leveraging SCADA protocols in IoT lets devices seamlessly communicate with SCADA systems. Ultimately, this ensures reliable and efficient data exchange for uninterrupted industrial processes.

What is the difference between SCADA and IoT?

SCADA systems primarily focus on monitoring and controlling industrial processes. IoT, on the other hand, is responsible for connecting numerous devices, ensuring data exchange, and improving performance.

Will IoT replace SCADA?

It’s hardly possible. Instead, SCADA systems and IoT are expected to work together. SCADA solutions will continue to provide the core functionality for monitoring and control, while IoT’s interconnectedness will facilitate the whole process.

What technology is used in SCADA?

SCADA systems combine hardware and software technologies like RTUs, PLCs, HMIs, communication networks, and specific data collection platforms.
