Paper Title
Building a Redundant Data Acquisition System Using IDE and PLC Simulation

This paper refers to the how a redundant system can be built for a process plant without hindering its function. It makes use of advanced SCADA IDE (Integrated development environment) and PLC simulation software in order to test the successful implementation. It involves various aspects for a secure process in a plant like alarms, trends and historizes data. Index Terms— Alarms, historize, IDE, PLC simulation, redundant system, Trends.
