Today, with its growing functionalities and features the possibility stretches beyond the classical implementation paradigm to include automation information data hub, communication protocols translator and historical information storage and retrieval engine. There are no limitations in sight.

Where is TMOS SCADA used?

TMOS SCADA is being used in various key power plants, cum oil and gas facilities world-wide. For the time it is interfacing with GE Speedtronic Mark V via its native Stage Link protocol, with ITS MACH7 via Ethernet, various PLCs and DCSs, Bently Nevada and flow computers with Modbus serial/TCP, third party software (e.g. OSI PI) via OPC, and alerting systems like ESPA444.

How long takes the installation of TMOS SCADA?
