PCs & Fibre Optic Infrastructure

With the comprehensive range of the iba infrastructure products, we offer you reliable hightech hardware. With this hardware, you can transmit signals and other measured values without any changes from the control system to the data acquisition system. There you can record the data.

The iba PCs & Fibre Optic Infrastructure Product Range

Industrial computers with state-of-the-art PC technology

For the demanding tasks in the fields of data acquisition and analysis, iba offers powerful industrial computers which meet the highest standards. The computers stand out by the high product quality coupled with state-of-the-art technology. They are designed for a long service life in a rough industrial environment.

Interface cards for fiber optics connections

The cards of the ibaFOB-D family are communication cards for ibaNet fiber optical links. The ibaFOB-D cards can be used for connecting a computer like e.g. iba industrial computers with iba peripherals like e.g. ibaPADU compact measurement modules, ibaLink system couplings and iba bus modules.

Fibre Optic Infrastructure
With the devices from the FO infrastructure product range, the user can concentrate and distribute FO connections with ibaNet protocols of different speed categories (3Mbit up to 32Mbit).
Time synchronization
With the time synchronization module ibaClock, several distributed iba systems can be synchronized precisely. ibaClock provides the timebase for all connected systems and allows for data acquisition synchronically.
