Implementation of Wireless SCADA System for Al-Tahady ESP


Wireless technologies are rapidly being adapted from simple monitoring and control to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Wireless provides highly reliable data communications in the hard and interference-heavy conditions. In this article, a new wireless SCADA system has been built to control the electrostatic precipitator (ESP) in Al-Tahady site/Al-Zawraa state company wirelessly. Two wireless devices are used Rocket M5 and AirLive_WHA-5500CPE which utilize the Wi-Fi wireless technology and the IEEE802.11/b standard was used. They used as a transceiver for sending and receiving the information between the master station (MS) and Programming Logic Controller (PLC). A more detailed focus on Iraq cement plants using wireless technologies for monitoring and control of the whole process as an application also was presented.
