  • Electronic signature,
  • Password aging,
  • E-signature timeout,

  • User creation in engineering and runtime environment,
  • User account lockup after specified no. of attempts,
  • Automatic logoff to guest mode,

The data was pulled from the plants into SCADA through scanners and PID controllers using Modbus RTU inbuilt driver. Tamper proof Electronic reports are generated through INDUSOFT SCADA to provide cross check and auditing for improving system performance.
