About Trihedral

Members from the VTScada Sales, Marketing, R&D, and Engineering teams at VTScadaFest, An Annual SCADA User’s Conference, in 2020.

A Permanent Team of HMI SCADA Software Developers

In 1986, Glenn Wadden founded Trihedral with two ambitious goals:

  1. Create the world’s most capable and reliable HMI and SCADA software.
  2. Provide the kind of outstanding support that people don’t think exists any more.

Since then, he has assembled a permanent team of programmers and engineers with diverse backgrounds in process automation and integration and created a flexible work environment to encourage creativity and reward initiative. Our corporate culture is to work until the job is done.

To retain these experts, Trihedral offers competitive salaries and benefits. We provide games rooms, exercise equipment, beverages, and activities like sports days, Super Bowl parties, and barbecues.

For over 3 decades, this team has kept VTScada, our only software product, on the cutting edge of SCADA technology with industry-leading innovations that include a reactive programming language, fully-integrated version control, and real-time configuration.

We never stop working to deliver the power, advanced features, and mission-critical reliability that make VTScada the Industry’s Most Powerful SCADA Software.

A Commitment to Outstanding Support

We believe that personal and accessible technical support is an integral component of great HMI and SCADA software. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems are complex and unique to each customer. Therefore, ensuring system uptime often requires timely answers from SCADA professionals with strong knowledge of the automation industry in general and specific knowledge of each customer’s system and needs. Our SCADA support offices are side-by-side with those of our development team. This makes it easy to get to the bottom of even the most difficult technical support questions. It also provides developers with direct feedback from customers to help keep VTScada growing with the needs of industry.

With a yearly support contracts in place, access to our friendly support team is just a phone call or email away.
