Autonomous, modular, scalable
Our data acquisition and software solutions for measuring, validating and analyzing machine, production and energy plants are scalable and can be perfectly extended at any time. They can not only grow along with increasing requirements but also get along with all common industrial control systems.
Scalable at any Time
Apart from its comprehensive connectivity, scalability is another main feature of an iba System. It is extendable at any time and can grow with increasing requirements. Starting from troubleshooting of a PLC with 64 signals to monitoring of a large plant with over 100,000 signals, camera systems with machine vision applications and quality data loaded into databases for automated product release and other features.
Data acquisition with iba can exactly be customized to your situation and aims. You only configure those interfaces and signals which you need for capturing your process. This allows you to start on a small base and add further interfaces, signals, data stores or camera systems, when your requirements grow.
At the beginning, analysis in general is interactive and signal-oriented. Nonetheless, measurement data can automatically be analyzed with the iba System, e.g. for quality documentation or when machines are compared on base of characteristic values. The calculation is done interactively once and then, basing on analysis rules automatically updated for every product or fixed time intervals. The results can automatically be documented in reports or loaded in databases - no matter whether they are OEE values or product details.
With the web-based application ibaDaVIS the plant or machine behavior can be visualized user-specific on dashboards. The analysis delivers important results concerning the optimizing of processes and machines for different user groups.
The iba System – an open Ecosystem
If products of the iba system do not fully meet your requirements, you can also publish data recorded with iba via our Northbound interfaces and use them in your environment.
The acquisition of measurement data in machines and plants is a basic prerequisite for your digitalization strategy.
