ibaPDA-V6 now available with interface for Bachmann-M1-controller

iba AG has added to the connectivity of ibaPDA-V6 - its PC-based system for central acquisition of process data - a request interface for M1 control systems by Bachmann. Using this interface, users can configure conveniently the measurement of data from the control during operation. By means of the request technology, the user gets important information for troubleshooting in course of the running production process.

The ibaPDA-V6 process data acquisition system deposits the measured values from the Bachmann controller as so-called DAT files or on the HD server, for these values can be subsequently analyzed using the free ibaAnalyzer software. ibaPDA-V6 can process several thousands of signals at a typical acquisition rate of 1 kHz and a maximum of 100 kHz for vibration measurements. Due to its broad connectivity, the process data acquisition system (PDA) not only disposes of the newly created interface but also of interfaces to all common bus systems and device generations.

For a convenient signal projection and signal request, the M1-controller needs to be connected via network to ibaPDA-V6. Using the M1 directory, the values to be measured can be selected in the I/O configurator of the measurement system by their symbolic name. An agent module configured on the Bachmann-M1 system, receives the measurement requirements and outputs the desired measured signals with cycle accuracy via Profibus. On the part of the measurement system, these measurement data are received by the ibaBM-DPM-S Profibus module and recorded as measurement signals. Due to the request technology, the measured signals can be re-configured freely during operation of the automation. "This is especially a clear advantage when searching for errors in continuously operating systems", explains Dr. Ulrich Lettau, CEO of iba AG. Further output channels like TCP/IP and BlueCom for the ibaPDA-V6 with Bachmann interface are currently in preparation.

The iba AG based in Fuerth (Northern Bavaria), is considered globally to be a leading specialist for high-quality, PC-based systems for data acquisition and analysis, signal processing and automation. Iba products are used in steel and metal industries, pulp and paper industries, in the field of transportation systems, for test benches as well as for power supply and wind turbines. The main feature of iba products is their distinct connectivity to other systems and bus technologies. An iba data acquisition system can be connected to almost every common automation system.

iba connectivity grows by connection to PROFINET network
With ibaBM-PN, iba AG has again broadened its extensive connectivity to automation systems and bus systems of many automation suppliers. The newly developed PROFINET bus monitor ibaBM-PN supports the PROFINET IO communication standard. This way, iba extends its range of field bus and drive bus monitors, which serve as interfaces for data acquisition in ibaPDA (the process data acquisition system of iba). By this, data from automation systems and peripheral
iba AG enhances software for data acquisition by two new interfaces
Plant builders, service technicians and control programmers can now benefit from extended options of ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer: recently two new interfaces have been added to iba’s popular data acquisition software. Now it can also be combined with Beckhoff controllers and B&R systems. With the new TwinCAT-Xplorer interface, the user has access to Beckhoff controllers with the Beckhoff-ADS protocol. It supports the TwinCAT versions 2 and 3. As for most of the ibaPDA-PLC-Xplorer
Research project by iba AG and the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz
Flat products in metal processing industry are produced in several steps. The individual process steps are usually not interconnected directly, but are separated by transportation routes and interim storage facilities. When the coils are supplied to the next process step, they might be mixed up. For identifying the coils, iba AG has developed in cooperation with the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz mathematical algorithms and processes that are based on
