The Center for Dynamic Data
Storage and distribution of data via IfTA DataHub
The IfTA DataHub software collects all data on a Windows based PC to archive, store and distribute it online in a network for visualization purposes. The sources of the data is not only the IfTA SignalMiner with dynamic data, but also data from OPC, DataSocket or other proprietary interfaces that record the operating conditions of the machine or environmental influences. Merging all these data allows the dynamic data to be viewed in a context. In addition, compact overview files are created by merging data chronologically and logically. Thus, it is possible to provide a daily overview of the machine behavior, which requires only a few MB of data and is also easily retrievable by remote access. The functions of storage, triggering, filtering and summary can be freely parametrized.
Finding the needle in a haystack
The new DataHub software collects data from a wide range of sources and enables combined analysis. For example, dynamic measurement data of more than 100 GB/day from IfTA measurement systems can be analyzed together with operating data. This data is stored 24/7 in ring buffers. The search for relevant events in these large amounts of data corresponds to the literal search for the "needle in a haystack".
Here, the DataHub supports the user by creating small, easy to handle overview files that allow a quick check and finding anomalies. In addition, the provided online connection allows real-time inspection of all data streams and data streaming into the cloud.
Data Acquisition and Analysis: The Basis for Industry 4.0
The acquisition of data and the corresponding analysis form the basis for Industry 4.0. The data that is required depends on the specific application, but the objective remains the same: to collect as much valuable information as possible and evaluate it meaningfully in order to implement improvements in the process.
The better you know your machines, the more optimizations are possible.
