"By combining process and vibration analysis, you will optimize the real time monitoring and offline analysis of your plant and processes."

Christian Reinbrecht, Product Manager, iba AG

Vibration Analysis

Area of Application

For reliable real-time monitoring of vibrations, offline analysis tools for optimization and validation are indispensable. The iba system offers you coordinated tools for vibration monitoring and analysis combined with process data.

Real Time Vibration Monitoring

ibaInSpectra offers all the possibilities for real-time monitoring of vibrations - from the individually adjustable frequency band monitoring, to a self-learning module for monitoring frequency spectra, to the orbit monitoring of shaft motions. Integrating vibration monitoring into ibaPDA makes it possible to take process influences into account during monitoring and to optimize alerting.

Offline Vibration Analysis

Analysis tools are crucial for being able to make meaningful statements about the state of machines and systems or causes of problematic process vibrations. The integration of vibration analysis into the analysis tool ibaAnalyzer offers entirely new possibilities for examining correlations between processes and vibration behavior.

Real Time Vibration Monitoring

Online Monitoring: Optimizing Processes, increasing Product Quality

ibaInSpectra is an integrated technology module of the ibaPDA process data acquisition system and processes vibration signals continuously and in real-time. With spectrum and orbit analyses, vibrations can be monitored online and set into relation to other process parameters. When vibrations become critical, the plant operator is informed via alarm message or email. In addition, a feedback in the plant control can be implemented to automatically adjust the corresponding parameters. ibaInSpectra offers different modules for analyzing vibrations online.

Also users with little practical experience can do a fast configuration due to the preconfigured calculations. For experts in the field of vibrations, there is a freely configurable Expert module that allows for the implementation of a wide spectrum of applications. The frequency bands to be monitored can be defined as fixed or depending on process variables and checked to see if they exceed limits. Shaft motions can be monitored online using the Orbit module.

ibaInSpectra - Real-time Condition Monitoring of process vibrations

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

Offline Vibration Analysis

Intelligent Tools for offline Analysis

The offline analysis tool ibaAnalyzer-InSpectra makes it possible to create meaningful analyses from the recorded vibration data. ibaAnalyzer-InSpectra offers the functionality of ibaInSpectra for vibration and orbit monitoring offline in ibaAnalyzer. Analysis configurations can first be designed and tested offline within ibaAnalyzer and transferred to ibaPDA for real time vibration monitoring. Alarms and outliners in the online monitoring can be reproduced with the offline analysis and set into relation with process data. ibaAnalyzer-InSpectra is also optimized for manual vibration analysis and offers a unique performance.

The analysis methods and functions for vibration analysis as well as the visualization options are also exceptional. Initial frequency and vibration analyses of the data recorded with ibaPDA and ibaCMC reveal interesting areas that can be analyzed in more detail with ibaAnalyzer-InSpectra subsequently. The results from ibaAnalyzer-InSpectra can be used to optimize ibaInSpectra modules with regard to calculation settings or to adjust measurement conditions and calculated characteristic values in ibaCMC.
