The iba system can be expanded easily and costeffectively with 750 series I/O modules from WAGO and K-bus modules from Beckhoff. The two central units ibaW-750 and ibaNet750-BM-D offer different possibilities of connection to the iba system: via Ethernet or fiber optics.
The flexible, decentralized WAGO I/O system is an ideal supplement to the iba system. All common I/O module types are supported.
ibaW-750 also supports various modules for power measurement of the 750-494 and 750-495 series. The modules measure current and associated voltages in the three-phase supply network and calculate characteristic values, e.g. effective/reactive/ apparent power, effective/reactive/ apparent energy, power factor, phase angle, frequency.
The following I/O module types are supported:
analog and digital I/O modules, incremental encoders, SSI inputs, RTDs, thermocouples, measuring bridges, modules for power measurement.
A maximum data volume of 2048 bytes can be transferred via the K-bus. The sampling rate depends on the cycle time on the K-bus.
There are two ways of simply integrating the I/O modules into the iba system with automatic detection (plug & play): on the one hand via a standard Ethernet connection with the central unit ibaW-750, on the other hand via fiber optics (FO) with ibaNet750-BM-D. The two variants differ mainly with regard to the possible sampling rates, the necessary cabling and the operating distance.
Both central units can be easily configured in ibaPDA as usual. The devices including the connected I/O modules are automatically detected in ibaPDA. When using ibaW-750, the device and the ibaPDA computer must be in the same LAN.
The power measurement modules are comfortably configured in ibaPDA. In addition, a large number of diagnostic signals are available, which can trigger an alarm in ibaPDA if, for example, a preset limit value is exceeded or not reached.
The modern Classic of Data Acquisition
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.
