Abstract: In the present day, all industry processes are automatically controlled. The wireless control networks in industries continue to grow because of the attributes inherent to wireless communication, such as flexibility, straightforward installation, and low labour costs. The key objective of the proposed system is to supervise and to control the industrial automation wirelessly using SCADA system. Visual Basic is used to create Human Machine Interface (HMI) and it provides the instruction to microcontroller for controlling whole industrial plant. In this project the industry considered is the dairy industry. The dairy industry process is controlled through PC using wireless network like Zigbee technology. Through PC we can observe the dairy process; how the milk is stored and circulated and how the stored milk is used for cheese preparation. The processes at dangerous places can be controlled with good accuracy and enhanced safety using SCADA. It is observed from the results that the proposed system is working with the maximum satisfaction.

 

Keywords: SCADA; microcontroller; Zigbee module; industrial automation.
