FACTORY ACCEPTANCE TESTING:
A Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is required of every system, and one or more of the client’s representatives are required to witness and participate in this testing. This FAT may be run in our facilities in Escondido, CA, or at another suitably equipped location.
The FAT allows the testing all system parameters prior to shipping and beginning installation. All computers and their peripherals, system display screens, SCADA HMI Software, RTU hardware and application logic are tested. It is also here where the first system training is begun.
INSTALLATION AND SYSTEM ACCEPTANCE TESTING:
- As each component of the system is installed, it is tested for performance functionality.
- After the installation is complete, the entire system is again tested, as a system.
- It is then expected to run for a defined period of time, without failure of any of the SCADA system components.
