The primary applications for DAQ SCADA technology are found in the electric utility industry, where Callisto automation products manage the distribution of power in substation and distribution line environments. Along with conventional data collection and control/monitoring functions, Callisto remotes are also capable of performing operations that are not traditionally associated with RTUs. In many cases, this functionality eliminates the need for utilities to purchase additional equipment to carry out specific tasks. Listed below are some of the SCADA applications that can be addressed using standard Callisto remotes and software packages.
Meeting the needs of today's electric utilities
Efficient communication/management of IED and system data streams
Zero voltage based switching for high-end capacitor installations
Direct interface with third party distribution line switches
Time-stamping and logging of change of state events
