FAQ


What is SCADA?

SCADA is an acronym that stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. SCADA refers to a system that collects data from various devices such as pvs, inverters, batteries, generators, sensors, meters at a plant or in other remote locations and then sends the data to a centralized location which then manages and controls the data received.


What is UNITY?

We offer a cost effective platform that offers maximum ROI and great value for users, owners and developers. To get a customized quote for your plant, please contact us and tell us about your project and your needs. We would provide you with costing based on your specific needs.


Do I really need SCADA on my plant?

Let us summarize…most importantly, a SCADA system will help you save time and money. With a monitoring system on your PV plants, you monitor the plants real time, eliminate site trips and save highly on operational costs. Your plants operate optimally and achieve longevity. You receive alarm notifications and you can troubleshoot and make immediate corrections. You can generate and analyze periodic reports of plant performance.


Does your SCADA system involve hardware or software components?

This would depend on your plant layout and what you would want to monitor. Our platform usually consists of innovative hardware and our intelligent software. These usually consists of peripheral monitoring and supervisory systems and devices including controllers, sensors and measuring instruments which are usually installed at the plant to monitor, supervise and control the site infrastructure elements.
