Latest interface seamlessly integrates measuring amplifiers

HBM has now developed an IPM software interface for its MP85A FASTpress and MP85A-S EASYswitch process controllers enabling easy connection to process data management software. The IPM interface ensures seamless integration of the controllers so that acquired production data can be directly transmitted to a quality assurance server for visualization and archiving.

The MP85A FASTpress and MP85A-S EASYswitch process controllers are used for monitoring press-fitting processes (FASTpress) or implementing switch checks (EASYswitch). They acquire and evaluate measured values from the transducer to monitor production quality.

IPM software has been developed by CSP GmbH & Co KG and is used by many leading manufacturers in production monitoring, quality control and documentation.

In addition to the overall status – whether the component is OK or NOK – up to nine evaluation windows or complete curves of, for example, a press-fit process can be transmitted. Data can also be observed in real time via a web browser allowing the press-fit process to be monitored without manually operating the production machinery.

In the event of production problems an SMS or email is automatically sent enabling swift remedial action to be taken. This rapid error evaluation allows product quality to be improved.

The data can also be analyzed to, for example, determine trends in measured values permitting corrective action before faulty parts are produced. All data are permanently stored in the IPM software database so that seamless traceability of produced parts is guaranteed.
