Easily build the application you want, around the I/O you’ve got.

It is important to note that nearly all of the features built into VTScada are industry agnostic. It is, as much a SCADA application building tool, as it is a tool for monitoring and control of applications. The instantly intuitive IdeaStudio means anyone can build the application they want around the I/O they’ve got.

Any application where you are looking to view, monitor, and record analog or discrete I/O is a good application to consider VTScada. From our free VTScadaLIGHT for small applications, to huge systems having hundreds of thousands of I/O, VTScada has licenses for applications of all sizes.

Gemini South Telescope

Paul Collins is the Electrical Supervisor at Gemini South, an optical/infrared observatory at the top of mount Cerro Pachón in Chile. For many years, Collins was frustrated by his inability to remotely monitor critical systems when the team was unable to travel up the mountain due to inclement weather. After trying many SCADA products, he discovered VTScada software by Trihedral, a comprehensive platform that could communicate with their diverse range of hardware using built-in, direct device drivers like Modbus and SNMP. Collins created a sophisticated application that allows remote observers to see critical information such as dome and shutter positions as well as alerts for rain, earthquakes, and loss of communications. The application even monitors vital systems such as UPS units, fire alarms, and the telescope’s complex cooling systems.
