The ASCADA-SAS (Ashida SCADA Software Systems) is
Windows operating system based, extremely user-friendly
Software and works in a point-n-click environment.
The ASCADA-SAS Software interrogates SCADA modules
installed on individual bays/post. All such information
collected from various modules is then processed,
recorded & presented to the user in form of colored
mimic diagrams, event lists, alarm lists, graphs,
summary screens & annunciation windows etc. These
can be further conferred as per user requirements
for customized audio alarms, etc.
In this mimic display screen, monitored component
can be selected and operated with a simple point-n-click
procedure. The user has an option to control individual
bays based on this data. Multiple such sub-stations
can be monitored from a single location.
The recorded data is used to generate reports like
history event, feeder logs, energy audits, interruption,
outage or tripping reports, history graphs and other
analytical reports as per user requirements. Any of
these can be exported to all popular word processing
& spread sheet formats.
Major components of ASCADA-SAS includes:
Human Machine Interface:

Client: It acts as a workstation for users.
Analysis: Provides historic analysis.
Servers: These are ActiveX exes for different
protocols works along with communication drivers
for different communication medias.
SAS Configuration: This utility is divided in
two parts one ‘SASConfig’, is used
for substation configuration and other ‘MimicConfig’
for graphical mimic editor.
