"With the iba system you receive the greatest possible clarity about all technical processes."

Dr. Ulrich Lettau, CEO, iba AG

iba system

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.

Acquire data

The basis of all process data analysis is the time synchronous acquisition of relevant data at characteristic places within an automated plant.

Different signal sources can be combined. Due to the isochronous measurement, causal relations can be detected and understood also in complex and distributed systems.

We get along with almost anybody!

Requesting measured data during running operation

For many systems, our request technology is available. This technology allows to optionally request internal variables of the controller. Thus, you can assemble measurement values without having to stop the controller and adapt these to the respective requirement.The measurement values are addressed with their symbolic name. The rest is done by a software agent in the controller which has to be integrated once.

Connectivity

iba offers different interfaces for data acquisition

Record data

Like a flight recorder, the iba system records and stores various measurement data available for the long term.

The data is recorded continuously (24/7) or triggered by certain defined events. Signals chosen by the user can be visualized on the live monitor.

Performance

The iba system acquires all relevant data in technological plants. Independently, whether fast analog values (up to 100kHz) coming directly from sensors, data exchanged over field buses or variables from automation systems. Everything can be set into relation to one another.

ibaPDA

As the central core of the iba system, ibaPDA has proven itself as one of the most versatile data acquisition systems for maintenance and production for many years. Among the many powerful features of ibaPDA are asset-agnostic acquisition, high-speed synchronous archiving, and real-time streaming analytics.

You determine, what is relevant!

Analyze data

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.

The generated measurement data in the .dat format can be forwarded without any problems and processed with the ibaAnalyzer free of charge. Hence, quality data analysis, troubleshooting and many other analyses can be done independently of the location and beyond corporate boundaries.

ibaAnalyzer

ibaAnalyzer is characterized by its broad capability for analyzing and evaluating data. The application is intuitive and offers an advanced set of functions. The license for analyzing measurement files, which have been generated with the iba system, is free of charge.

Derive information

By deriving Key Performance Indicators (KPI), the user gains valuable information about the acquired process. This way, clean measurement data become a tangible competitive advantage.

Blank

Interactive analysis

The common method for all unforeseeable incidents allows for a comprehensive troubleshooting.

Blank

Reports

The compact automatically generated overview of the analysis results allows to draw fast and easy meaningful conclusions.

Blank

Alarm

In case of deviations from the usual process behaviour, the user will be informed automatically.

Data extraction to the database

Store compressed information for the cross referencing of process and quality parameters in databases and access the high resolution measurement data with just a mouse-click for cause analysis.
