Use Case - Pipeline Flow/Control diagram

Installed in control rooms at regular intervals along the length of the system, each DataHub is connected to a number of remote terminal units (RTUs) that bring in data and pass commands to valves, pumps, sensors and other equipment for that section of pipe.  In the control room, data from the DataHub powers a SCADA system and user HMI modules, a data historian and database, spreadsheets, and even teletext machines.
