Flexible scalable and highly responsive SCADA solutions

GPS Links has extensive experience of plant wide control systems, best in class software including WinCCOA, Aveva-Wonderware and Ignition, and deep understanding of SCADA data collection, analysis, diagnostics and reporting functions. 

Visualise control and optimise your process

Our services include advice and input to system design, assisting with network architectures, IP schedules, URS/FDS and hardware selection through to completion and documentation. 

Programming extends from single CPU setups to dual-redundant PLCs and multi-PLC architectures. Security, from local HMI/PLC to remote connectivity. And, data history-recording from trending data to automated reports.  

All our SCADA systems are designed as platforms capable of expanding in scale and function to meet changing requirements.
