 - acquiring up to 64 signals via Xplorer interfaces
 - Data acquisition system with on-demand access to Operands/Symbols
 - without additional communication hardware
 - max. number of connections / modules per interface: 16
 - Online analyze or Offline analyze

Allows access to:

  • SIMATIC systems (S7-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
    - Data access via MPI/Profibus(for e.g. with CP5512,CP5612)
  • Codesys based systems (Codesys-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
  • Allen Bradley systems PLC5 / SLC-5 / MicroLogix (AB- Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
  • Sigmatek systems (Sigmatek-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
  • Beckhoff systems (TwinCat-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
    - Supports TwinCAT-Version 2 and 3
  • B&R systems (B&R-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
    - In addition a B&R PVI-Manager license is required for the data acquisition. This license must be ordered from B&R directly on extra costs!
  • Allen Bradley systems Control-/Compact-/MicroLogix (Logix-Xplorer)
    - Data access via TCP/IP
  • Melsec-Xplorer (interface for Mitsubishi MELSEC systems)

Special Remarks:

  • License with a fixed price
  • No hardware interfaces(FOB / COM cards)
  • To add the latest Xplorer interfaces is possible by ordering "Upgrade-ibaPDA-PLC- Xplorer"
  • Xplorer interfaces with drive controller can be licensed seperately
  • If additional ibaPDA functionality is required (e.g. signal extension, QPanel, data stores, other interfaces, etc.) this license must be upgraded first with "Upgrade-PLC-Xplorer to PDA-V7-64" SKU 30.770009. After an upgrade all ibaPDA extension features can be ordered.
  • In conjunction with ibaCapture-V4 access to video cameras is supported
  • Protected by hardlock (dongle)!
