ibaInCycle monitors cyclically recurring and rotating processes online. A precise forecast of quality features is therefore possible already during production. Implementing measures promptly can prevent damage and malfunctions of machines or plants, thereby ensuring the product quality.
- Online monitoring and analysis of cyclical processes (recurring process steps, rotating mechanics)
- Identifying process anomalies
- Automatic alarming in real time
- Saving raw data for detailed analysis in measurement files
- Outputting characteristic values for the long term analysis in higher- level systems
- Online visualization of measured data and characteristic values
- Self-learning module for different process conditions (auto-adapting)
- Reference curves for various process conditions
- Individual definition of warning and alarm limits
- Comprehensive configuration options
ibaInCycle is an add-on to ibaPDA and monitors all types of cyclically repeating processes, such as recurring processes, but also rotating machine parts, i.e. rollers, gears, etc.
It is not only possible to operate ibaInCycle on a central system, but also on the edge device ibaDAQ. This compact monitoring solution can be used right on the machine on site as a standalone solution.
Process signals from cyclical processes ideally exhibit similar behavior within a cycle. ibaInCycle compares the “learned” good process with the actual process signal and calculates meaningful characteristic values.
The InCycle Expert module makes it possible to divide process cycles evenly into any number of ranges and freely define meaningful characteristic values for any range.
The characteristic values of any area are monitored for changes. For processes consisting of several steps, the cycles can be divided into several sub-cycles.
The characteristic values can be output to higher-level systems, such as databases and cloud systems, for a long term analysis. The measurement files with the raw data can be used for detailed analyses.
The cycle view, which was developed specifically for ibaInCycle, offers several demonstrative types of visualization. In the waterfall view, cycle changes over time are displayed particularly clearly.
The Auto-Adapting module is capable of learning the ideal process sequence from a number of curves. In the learning phase, a reference curve is learned for this purpose, which also takes different process conditions into consideration, such as different material properties, geometries, temperatures, speeds, etc.
In the monitoring phase, the Auto-Adapting module compares the reference curve with the measured curve. In the process, permitted deviations can be individually defined using warning and alarm limits.
This Software is one of many useful Add-ons of 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.
