Due to the rapid development in automation system, control and monitoring are necessary for any modern system. DCS provides this control and monitoring for industrial automation. The system is designed and constructed Distributed Control System (DCS) based power distribution in university campus. The research has constructed hardware and utilized Microsoft visual basic software in software environment using a communication network and embedded controllers. All hardware and software components have been developed and integrated together. Data exchange mechanism, USB cable has been developed between the host computer and the embedded controllers that function in two way data exchanges between the two.
