ibaInSpectra

Monitoring Process Vibrations in Real Time

With ibaInSpectra, any vibrations are monitored continuously and possible error sources can be detected in an early stage. As ibaInSpectra is integrated in ibaPDA, not only pure vibration analyses can be done, but also possible relations between vibrational effects and process behavior can be determined.

Product Features

Open and versatile

In contrast to many other vibration monitoring systems, ibaInSpectra is not a manufacturer- specific system or limited to individual machines, but rather uses the wide connectivity of iba products. Thus, it is perfectly made for the use in heterogeneous automation structures, that are characterized by a great number of different technical disciplines and controller types.

Real-time Analysis

With ibaInSpectra, the sensors can be monitored time-synchronously and continuously and the current frequency analyses can be displayed in real time. ibaInSpectra thus differs from condition monitoring systems, which are designed for long-term trends and that often only analyze vibration sensors briefly at intervals of hours or days.

Flexible Configuration

Designed as an integrated technology module of ibaPDA, ibaInSpectra serves to monitor vibrations. ibaInSpectra provides different modules, which are configured in the I/O manager by ibaPDA.

ibaInSpectra Modules

The expert module offers the most diverse parameterization options for the frequency band analysis and is the preferred tool for vibration experts.

Operation and Visualization

ibaInSpectra modules have an own branch in the ibaPDA signal tree. For the display, just a suitable view needs to be opened and the ibaInSpectra module has to be dragged in by means of drag & drop. The views offer various display options such as waterfall, contour, orbit view, etc. and can be customized as required.

Consistency up to offline Analysis

When recording with ibaPDA, the ibaInSpectra modules are stored completely with all the calculated characteristic values in the measured data file. In ibaAnalyzer, all modules are available in the signal tree and the determined characteristic values can be dragged via drag & drop into the trend view or used for other calculations.
