Monitoring and debugging tools for every field of application, from the signal test of the control cabinet builder to section identification of the control system engineer, shorten commissioning times and increase the transparency of the overall system. Bachmann electronic has leading-edge test and diagnostics products for several years in the portfolio. Now the newest generation of the software oscilloscopes "Scope 3" is being launched on the market.
In the initial project design and also for commissioning or troubleshooting, transparent information concerning states and sequences of an automatic system is essential for success. For many dynamic processes seeing a physical variable as only a numeric value is insufficient. The software oscilloscope "Scope 3" makes the temporal progression of processes visible and places this progression in relation to other process variables. "Scope 3" is an indispensable tool for optimization of a controller setting, for troubleshooting in a sequential program, or for ongoing verification of the manufacturing process on the machine.
With "Scope 3" the next milestone has been reached in this success story. The product was extended to include new functions that in general have been only available in very expensive hardware oscilloscopes. It permits specific and stand-alone recording, archiving of the relevant data in a database and subsequent measurement or evaluation of a great number of values in parallel. Different trigger conditions as well as pre-trigger and post-trigger functionalities enable acquisition of all relevant data, such as in the case of sporadically occurring errors.
Calculation of additional curves from the recording values facilitates retrospective analysis. A special exchange format enables saving and sending of the recording configuration and entered values in one and the same file. Thus, Scope recordings can be forwarded by email and further processed by the recipient to their full extent (zoom, measurement with cursors, calculation of curves, etc.)
"Scope 3" is also the right tool for the long-term archiving of measured values directly on the controller. The maximum storage space available is configured and the recording started by means of archiving limits. Thus, millions of data points can be archived directly on the controller. Backup and export functions then allow further processing of the collected data. So können Millionen von Datenpunkten direkt auf der Steuerung archiviert werden. With the new "Scope 3" products like DeviceManager Scope, Archive Handler (AHD), Logger or the recorder for quality tables (QTR) will not just be replaced, they will be completely outperformed.
