Upgrade of ibaPDA to latest V7.x (Steel Plant)
For Steel production data acquisition and software solutions for measuring, validating and analysing machine and production data are very critical for smooth operation.
The solution covers from connecting the field instruments and bring data on ibaRackline PC
As central part of the iba system, ibaPDA has been proving itself as one of the most versatile data acquisition systems for maintenance and production for years. Client-server architecture, flexible recording, simple configuration owing to auto-detect are just some of the convincing features.
Data acquisition system for maintenance, production and quality control
Connection of automation systems of different manufacturers and generations
Individually configurable online display with client-server architecture
Several simultaneous acquisitions possible
Central configuration dialog with integrated online diagnostics
Additional information on text signals importable
Output of messages and alarms
Synchronization of several ibaPDA systems in multi-station operation with microsecond accuracy
The devices ibaPADU-8, ibaPADU-16, ibaPADU-32 and ibaPADU-32-R (Parallel Analog Digital Units) are designed for data acquisition and control purposes for up to 1 kHz sampling rate. The four basic device types differ only in the number of signals per device i.e. ibaPADU-8 = 8 analog plus 8 binary inputs. Concerning resolution and accuracy all devices are similar.
To meet a variety of demands the devices differ in the number of channels and housings:
· ibaPADU-8: Standalone device with 8 A+8 D channels and DIN-rail mount
· ibaPADU-16: Table chassis with 16 A+16 D channels and AC 115 V/250 V power
if no special reference to a device is made in the following text the devices are named as ibaPADU in general.
For special measuring tasks devices with different I/O physics (i. e. ±20 mA) or higher input impedance (ibaPADU-8-HI) are available.
The devices are ideally suited for the following applications:
· Process data acquisition
· Trouble Shooting and error detection
· Portable measuring devices (e. g. with the table versions)
To guarantee a good dynamic range or SNR ratio of the signals every A/D channel is equipped with its own A/D converter.
All ibaPADU devices can be linked in a daisy-chain on the fiber optic links. A maximum of 64 analog plus 64 digital channels may be connected per link
