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

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

iba AG presents new Profibus sniffer ibaBM-DP at the SPS IPC Drives 2013 exhibit …

The ibaBM-DPMS Profibus measurement module has been used successfully in numerous industrial measurement applications for acquiring the signals that are cyclically exchanged via the Profibus using the ibaPDA-V6 process data acquisition system. With the new ibaBM-DP Profibus sniffer, iba now presents the technically revised successor model offering new features. As an added benefit, the Profibus sniffer offers an advanced bus diagnosis with monitoring of the signal level and the potential

Press Release of iba AG: Module for “Machine Vision” optimizes process monit …

The automated control using camera-based solutions helps detecting error sources in industrial production processes in a very reliable way and hence lays the basis for an interactive correction. For automatic-visual process analysis, iba AG presents the image processing system ibaMachineVision at the SPS IPC Drives 2013 in Nuremberg. This module extends the functionality of ibaCapture-CAM, which is a complete system consisting of hardware and software for recording visual information. “With

ibaLink-VME connects iba components to common controllers

For users of VMEbus based controllers, iba AG based in Fuerth (Northern Bavaria) has innovated the proven ibaLink module fundamentally. Due to the now higher performance of the module, it is possible to read the control data of established suppliers of automation technology at cycle speeds of up to 25 µs in real time and further process these data. Compared to the successful predecessor ibaLink-SM-128V-i-2o, the number of signals which

Fast acquisition and recording of analog signals with ibaPADU-4-AI-U

iba AG enters new speed classes in the field of sampling rates for industrial analog-digital converters. At the „Sensor+Test 2013“ in Nuremberg, the German company presents its new ibaPADU-4-AI-U compact device, that offers a sampling rate which can be adjusted for the first time to up to 100 ksamples/s. „The ibaPADU-4-AI-U is a further development of the successful PADU technology and rounds off our product range of transducers to the

ibaLink-io-embedded establishes compatibility to iba measurement components

For manufacturers of automation systems, ibaLink-io-embedded offers a high-performing possibility to connect to the “iba world”. By means of a parallel asynchronous data bus that can be operated optionally in 8 bit or 16 bit mode, the module is directly integrated into the controller. Due to its compact design, the module only needs little space. Via the 32 Mbit/s fiber optics connection, the controller is able to communicate with the

Time-saving insight in all measured data

At the turn of the year, iba AG – located in Northern Bavaria – introduced the ibaDatManager. With the user-friendly application for central administration of measured data, the latter can be searched and analyzed in a comprehensive and consistent way throughout the whole production process. The files can be found either by their name or by means of their properties. The single departments of a company like production, quality assurance and

Condition Monitoring and process analysis with a single system

iba AG offers an innovative Condition Monitoring system in variable sizes for different application scenarios. From decentral monitoring of individual physical machine performance figures up to the central acquisition of all relevant data for a total production, the ibaInSpectra versions ibaInSpectra “compact“, ibaInSpectra “embedded” and ibaInSpectra “factory “ cover any field of application and can be used – due to their connectivity to all conventional automation solutions – independently of

iba AG sends Historical-Data-server into the competition

New software component makes long term analysis of measured data easier ibaHD-server (HD=historical data), the new software component developed by the Fuerth based iba AG, records data continuously over long periods of time and displays these data consistently. With the same tool, users can watch live data and access historical data without any delay. Whether in paper manufacturing industries, processes in continuous casting or chemical plants: especially in long

iba AG presents its modular system ibaPADU-S

Measurement technology: flexibility instead of rigid standard Whether you want to monitor the energy quality, acquire data or operate drive and position controls: the iba AG based in Fuerth offers you maximized flexibility with the new modular system ibaPADU-S. ibaPADU-S acquires and processes measured signals and can be used for closed loop control and control applications by means of the suitable signal output modules. The decisive advantage of the new system is
