HMI / SCADA is a well-known concept in automation and industrial production. The solution came on the market in the 1960s, and is part of the industrial digitalization, known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Novotek has been a supplier of HMI / SCADA solutions since our start-up in 1986. 

HMI / SCADA is an automation solution for monitoring, control and management. Operators in production companies depend on a good overview of machines and equipment. The system allows operators to monitor, control and visualize all aspects of operations. At a glance, operators know what are important and appropriate measures to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

How is HMI / SCADA used?

SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a term for systems that collect data, control and monitor. SCADA is often used to monitor large areas, such as entire facilities. HMI (Human Machine Interface), is part of the SCADA solution, and the term for the user interface between machine and human. In practice, this involves a screen that allows the operator to monitor and control machines and systems.

Together, HMI / SCADA is a software-based control system architecture. The solution provides operators with a graphical user interface, where network data can be used to monitor performance, change settings and issue process commands.

Data is collected from RTUs, PLCs and other control units such as flow meters and temperature controllers. This allows the operator to see what is happening in real time, as well as detect trends and alarms. This data information can be used in decisions about settings and control adjustments to optimize production.

The system can be integrated with other solutions, such as a “Data Historian” for historical trend and analysis.
