iba System

See The Big Picture

The iba system for process data acquisition and analysis consists of perfectly adjusted hardware and software components for acquiring, recording, analyzing and processing measurement data. Due to the modular design and the simple configuration, the iba system can be adapted comfortably to the various tasks and is scalable in size at any time.

Autonomous, modular, scalable

Our data acquisition and software solutions for measuring, validating and analyzing machine, production and energy plants are scalable and can be perfectly extended at any time. They can not only grow along with increasing requirements but also get along with all common industrial control systems.

iba system process connectivity

Process Connectivity

The basis of all process data analysis is the time-synchronous acquisition of relevant data at characteristic places within an automated process. Different signal sources can be combined. Due to isochronous measurement, causal relationships can be…

Acquire & Record

The basis of all process data analysis is the time synchronous acquisition of relevant data at characteristic places within an automated plant. Like a flight recorder, the iba system records and stores various measurement data available for the long…

iba system analyze & optimize

Analyze & Optimize

Depending on the objective, the data are analyzed individually - either directly during acquisition (online) or on the basis of the recorded values following an event. By deriving Key Performance Indicators (KPI), the user gains valuable information…

iba system output connectivity

Output Connectivity

With the broad northbound connectivity measurement and quality data can also be processed outside the iba system. With connections to databases and cloud systems, data acquired with iba can be stored, evaluated and analyzed in your system.

Scalable at any Time

Apart from its comprehensive connectivity, scalability is another main feature of an iba System. It is extendable at any time and can grow with increasing requirements. Starting from troubleshooting of a PLC with 64 signals to monitoring of a large plant with over 100,000 signals, camera systems with machine vision applications and quality data loaded into databases for automated product release and other features.

Data Acquisition
Data acquisition with iba can exactly be customized to your situation and aims. You only configure those interfaces and signals which you need for capturing your process. This allows you to start on a small base and add further interfaces, signals, data stores or camera systems, when your requirements grow.

Data Analysis
At the beginning, analysis in general is interactive and signal-oriented. Nonetheless, measurement data can automatically be analyzed with the iba System, e.g. for quality documentation or when machines are compared on base of characteristic values. The calculation is done interactively once and then, basing on analysis rules automatically updated for every product or fixed time intervals. The results can automatically be documented in reports or loaded in databases - no matter whether they are OEE values or product details.

Optimizing
With the web-based application ibaDaVIS the plant or machine behavior can be visualized user-specific on dashboards. The analysis delivers important results concerning the optimizing of processes and machines for different user groups.

The iba System – an open Ecosystem
If products of the iba system do not fully meet your requirements, you can also publish data recorded with iba via our Northbound interfaces and use them in your environment.

Areas of Application

It is our mission to bring transparency to the world of industrial production, power generation and energy distribution plants. Using an iba system, you can be sure that your plants and machines are captured 360° and every single process within can be 24/7 seamlessly recorded and made visible.
