    Systematic Transparency

    The ibaPDA system (Process Data Acquisition System) is the core product of iba applications. ibaPDA is an extremely powerful, PC-based acquisition and recording system for different measured data in automated technical processes.

    Continuous long-term acquisition
    of measured values to be able to further optimize automation processes

    Specific search
    for errors

    Use as disturbance recorder
    with triggered recording in case of failure

    Product Highlights

    The modular product concept allows highly flexible configuration options and provides perfectly tailored solutions for varying needs.

    Signals Galore

    ibaPDA is available in numerous variants with regard to the number of signals. Licenses are available for 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192 and an unlimited number of signals.

    Broad Connectivity

    A special feature of the ibaPDA system is the broad connectivity allowing to acquire data from programmable controllers of all common manufacturers. This includes different process signals, such as analog and digital I/O signals, signals from field and drive buses, data from programmable controllers, communication data, product characteristics, etc.

    Scalable Sampling Timebase

    For usual acquisition of measured data, the timebase may be set between 1 and 1000 ms. For higher speeds regarding signal changes, special modules can realize shorter acquisition times of down to 10 μs.

    Direct Writing to Databases/Clouds

    Data can also be written time- based directly from ibaPDA to data bases/clouds. For this pur-pose special data stores subject to licensing are available. The licenses are scaled according to the number of signals. Currently streaming to Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SAP HANA, as well as MindSphe-re, MQTT and Apache Kafka is supported.

    Measure, view and understand

    See everything
    ibaCapture can be used to capture and record video from cameras and HMI systems synchronized to measurement values in ibaPDA.

    Time-synchronized Images and data
    Images and measurement data can be viewed in a time-synchronized way with accuracy down to individual samples. As a result, causalities that are often not identifiable at first glance can be better understood.

    Better Process Monitoring
    The use of cameras improves process monitoring wherever operations are difficult to measure or process steps cannot be reliably detected with sensors.
