The VS.Net SCADA System is specifically designed for use by smaller electric utilities. It incorporates many special features to make the system easy to use and maintain. Valquest Systems provides consulting, training, and on-site technical services such as wiring and checkout to assist the client with planning and installation of the Master Station and RTUs.
With the ever increasing focus on distribution efficiency and power quality, VS.Net SCADA provides a cost-effective solution for system analysis, timely responsiveness, equipment control, and history recording.
The VsNet Master Station uses standard PC compatible computers with Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP. It has all of the features necessary for monitoring and control of the distribution and/or transmission system. Because most personnel are already familiar with the Windows environment, they inherently have a head start in learning to operate the SCADA System.
Tabular displays and single line diagrams are constructed by utility personnel using CAD and database tools designed by VSI. These tools are included as part of the SCADA System software. Security IDs and passwords insure that only authorized persons are able to operate equipment or modify system parameters.
