Data Acquisition & Monitoring Systems

Case Study: High Availability SCADA system

The Thermal Data Acquisition and Control System with Supervisory control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Software is used for.

    • Thermal Vacuum Performance Test .
    • Solar Simulation Thermal Balance tests on Spacecraft
    • IR Simulation Thermal Balance test

The main functions of the system are:

  • Acquire and monitor temperature using T type thermocouple or PT100,200 ,1000 RTD.
  • Control DC programmable power supply in different modes.
  • Acquire spacecraft telemetry data from Ground checkout computer system and parameters from Facility server.
  • Data Acquisition
  • Data processing
  • TAG Management
  • Closed loop control.
  • System test configuration.
  • Alarm management
  • Real time and Historical trending.
  • ODBC Data base Open source like PostreSQL or Oracle.
  • Reporting
  • Graphical user interface.
  • Control Programmable power Supplies with Digital communication.. GPIB ,Modbus, TCP/IP.
