"Troubleshooting by iba. Find the causes of process errors with a few clicks."

Ahmet Kösereisoglu, Consultant, iba Turkey Ltd.

Troubleshooting

Failures in automated systems can lead to production downtime and inferior quality. Failure mode analysis is easily achieved for maintenance personnel that have access to the archived data. Through automated or ad-hoc analysis, users determine the cause and effect relationships and act to eliminate or reduce the chance of repeat occurrences. Quality personnel can also apply their expertise when researching potential product defects.

Record data continuously

For localizing failures, automated systems need to be continuously monitored and recorded in order to bring transparency to the process. The iba system provides a global view of the entire automation system and allows for analysis of the interactions between the various components and control systems. The iba system can be easily scaled from a portable tool, ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer, for troubleshooting random failures to a permanently-integrated system, ibaPDA, that provides 24/7 monitoring.

Convenient data analysis with video images

"A picture is worth a thousand words." - ibaCapture can synchronize video streams to process data collected by ibaPDA. In addition, captured videos can be processed in real-time using ibaVision to acquire data that is not feasible with current sensor technology. ibaAnalyzer provides automated or ad-hoc analysis, whereby users determine the cause and effect relationships and act to eliminate or reduce the chance of repeat occurrences. Adding synchronous video review and analysis to the mix provides users with an extremely powerful troubleshooting tool.

ibaCapture

ibaCapture, in conjunction with ibaPDA, records video and HMI images synchronously with measurement data. Recording can be done continuously, or triggered by events. Important events can be automatically stored as still images. For historical analytics, ibaAnalyzer can be used to automatically retrieve, align, and display recorded video and HMI images with archived measurement data.
