SCADA and Automation Videos and Podcasts

  1. Pilot Actuators Offer Remote Management Benefits

    Sometimes water systems are constructed in hard to reach areas that are dangerous for human operators, such as high rise buildings. In this video, Wes Caudle from Singer Valve explains how installing a pilot actuator as a remote management tool for control valves both solves this problem and offers additional benefits.    

  2. SCADA Systems Provide Insight To Increase Efficiency

    Glenn Wadden, President of Trihedral, explains how today’s SCADA systems are intuitive to learn for remote plant operators and capable of providing feedback that can reduce cost and increase efficiency.

  3. Applying SCADA In Ocala

    Bryan Sinkler of Trihedral discusses Ocala, FL’s SCADA application including SCADA lifespan concerns, integration of security cameras with their SCADA system and the benefits of multiple SCADA historians. 

  4. VTScada Slippy Maps - The Familiarity and Ease-of-Use Of On-Line Mapping, Right In Your HMI

    Interact with your remote monitoring sites in the same way you use on-line mapping tools. Pan and zoom across all your sites with a simple click, toss, or scroll. Add dynamic maps to any graphic display or use the standard map pages included in all 10.2 applications.

  5. Trihedral Shares The Capabilities Of SCADA

    Patrick Cooke of Trihedral discusses recent advances in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), as well as the role SCADA plays throughout each stage of the water cycle.

  6. Video: VTScada Retentive Totalizer & Counter Tags

    The VTScada totalizer and counter tags provide you with important information for performing preventative maintenance, creating operating and usage reports, or recognizing patterns and anomalies in your system.

  7. Video: Online Configuration With VTScada HMI Software

    Online Configuration allows process monitoring to continue while you create and modify application displays and tag data. This is an essential feature of mission-critical HMI systems where shutting down the application is not an option

  8. Video: Configure A Redundant VTScada Application Server In 40 Seconds

    In this video, Blair Sooley of Trihedral Engineering demonstrates how to configure a redundant VTScada server with automatic seamless failover in less than 40 seconds.

  9. Video: The VTScada Driver Multiplexer - Part 2 - Practical Applications

    This video outlines four typical applications for the VTScada Driver Multiplexer (DriverMUX) that can reduce down time and increase system efficiency

  10. Video: The VTScada Driver Multiplexer - Part 1 - What Is It?

    VTScada HMI software has long supported automatic failover of both application servers and internet servers. New in VTScada 8.1, the Driver Multiplexer (or DriverMUX) expands this concept to include both redundant PLCs and redundant communication links to the HMI
