Developed as a means of providing remote universal access to OT systems, SCADA systems are a kind of central nervous system for industrial plants.
Supervisory computers and sensors from PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) and RTUs (Remote Terminal Units) feed data back to the SCADA system which monitors and controls the processes of these devices, visualizing behavior and performance for human attention.
