The inexpensive software solution ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer provides the complete functionality of ibaPDA and is able to record 64 signals from up to 16 independent PLCs per PLC-Xplorer interface. The PLC system can be accessed via standard interfaces – usually via Ethernet – without additional hardware.
The variable list of the PLC can easily be imported in ibaPDA-PLC- Xplorer. All I/O signals and other operands from the PLC programs can be measured.
As known in ibaPDA, various recording profiles can be defined for different applications. Continuous data recording of measurement files in iba format (*.dat) is necessary for long-term analyses or process optimizations, and triggered recordings are useful when errors have to be located. Trigger conditions can be defined time or event related.
Due to the client server architecture it is possible to online display the timing of all signals on one client.
Measurement files generated by ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer can be analyzed using the ibaAnalyzer standard tool which is available free of charge.
Once the evaluation criteria have been defined, analyzing can automatically be done in order to save valuable time. It it possible to configure ibaPDA-PLC- Xplorer so that the analysis of the last file starts automatically.
Using ibaAnalyzer-Reportgenerator, reports can automatically be generated in various formats and individual layouts. Individual job reports, shift reports, or product reports for production, quality management, or controlling can be created in different formats virtually at the push of a button.
When the data shall be processed in a database, measuring data can be loaded into a database with ibaAnalyzer-DB.
When launching the latest version of ibaCapture, it is possible to connect ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer with an ibaCapture Server. Thus, measuring data and video data can be recorded synchronously.
