Process Connectivity

iba System

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 detected and understood, even in complex and distributed systems.

"We get along with almost everybody!"

Traditional measurement systems acquire electronic sensor signals with the help of A/D converters. In the era of digital control systems, most measurement values that are of interest are already present in the automation system. This is why iba offers various methods for accessing the internal values of control systems directly.

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.

Your Connection to almost every System

Broad Connectivity to Automation Systems
A main characteristic of the iba system is the broad connectivity to automation systems. Via field bus connections, Ethernet protocols or system interfaces, an iba system can be connected to almost every automation system independently of manufacturer and device generation.

Requesting Measurement Data during running Operation
For many systems, Xplorer interfaces and request method are available. This method allows you to optionally request internal variables of the PLC. Thus, you can newly select measurement values without having to stop the PLC and adapt these to the respective requirement.

The measurement values are addressed with their symbolic name. Sending data is done by a software request block in the PLC which has to be integrated once. Data transmission is done via UDP or field buses.

The right solution for different requirements

The iba system acquires all relevant data in technological processes. Whether independently acquiring fast analog values (up to 100kHz) coming directly from sensors, data exchanged over field buses, or variables from automation systems, all data can be synchronized.

Measuring value acquisition - ibaPDA

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.
