Answer / sivasankari
SCADA is an abbreviation for Supervisory Control and Data
DCS stands for Distributed Control System.
Normally, a SCADA system will get the data from a RTU
(remote terminal unit). A RTU runs independently, except
for some control from the central supervisory system such
as fire fighting, emergency shut-down (i.e water & oil
pipelines). The communication path will be through a GSM,
wireless technology, etc...
For a DCS system, it controls the process as a stand-alone
system. It has the control loops built into it's own
controller. The communication path will be through
something like a LAN high-speed Ethernet, or other
communications network. DCS is a single unit, or a group of

Answer / sam
SCADA is nothing but the HMI,which need to communicate with
the controller and then controler will comunicate with the
DCS(Controller+SCADA) its self have a controller,its
directly commincate to the field instrument.

Answer / yogesh patel
Scada:- is software. it is not use alone in the field
without control hardware.And it is Display unit.
DCS:- is different thing which is redudant system and also
has controller and Display unit.

Answer / sks
Both SCADA & DCS are control & monitoring systems for any
process, but the basic difference is in their architecture.
SCADA can be considered as a subset of DCS in terms of

Answer / vijay krishna
dcs is an electronic unit which performs the task
according to our programme.all inputs are given to it and
it delivers the output according to our logic written.
where as scada is just a software which will take the
inputs and outputs from dcs and shows in a pictorial form
which we have to develop it is only to moniter for the

what is linerity and non-linearity?
We do have a problem in the company that is one PT connected to PlC which is mean 1 out of 1 in PLC system we do have the PAHH is 55 mbar and PALL 8 mbar with a timer of 15 sec for the PAHH the problem started when PAHH goes more than the set point which is 55 it reached up to 71 but due to timer doesn't trip . We force it and we checked everything nothing there . We replaced the transmitter problem still there the reading goes more than the 55 bar the range for transmitte is 0- 60 mbar . So we did loop check , aculaizing valve , wiring all are okay . What the possible causes for this ???
