SCADA System Maintenance. Really?IEPA ID#: 7280
Time: 11:15 - 11:45 am

Moderator: Chris Sosnowski
SUMMARY: With sophisticated
SCADA Systems installed in a large majority of water and facilities, the need
for ongoing maintenance of those systems is critical to their accuracy and
reliability. Similar to maintaining a piece of equipment like a pump,
maintenance of electronic equipment is also important to keep that equipment
operating as originally designed and at its peak efficiency. This presentation
will discuss recommended maintenance for items such as motor control centers,
instruments, programmable controllers, computers, and software. Cost
considerations and impact on equipment life will also be reviewed.

Brent has been intimately involved with SCADA systems for over
20 years. He has a passion for helping SCADA system users make the most
out of their systems by helping users understand their systems better.
While he is an Electrical Engineer by degree, his training and experience has
been in process control and monitoring. This experience and training have
given him an excellent understanding of the individual components that are used
in SCADA systems as well as the big picture of the overall integrated system. Brent
is proud to say his background is not limited to SCADA system design, as he has
worked with numerous SCADA system users to define a maintenance and replacement
strategy that meets the User’s needs and budget constraints.
