KNOW HOW

The basis of EDIBON technology is our "SCADA" system. This system can always be used in any part of the process whenever necessary. SCADA is the acronym for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition.

It is a very widespread system in the industry and we are the only company in the world that has introduced it in our training and research units, offering thus multiple advantages to users.

Thanks to this computer-controlled technology, with our SCADA system you can save time and increase efficiency during training.

EXPLANATION ABOUT SCADA

The SCADA system starts by using sensors that control several parameters involved in the process or in the EDIBON unit, following the same steps carried out in the industry.

The signals received in the SENSORS are treated and the noise obtained is isolated. All this information is sent to the CONTROL INTERFACE to control the harmonic interference and the magnetic effects. Using the SOFTWARE (specific to each unit and based on Labview), all the signals received from the unit sensors can be understood. The results can be displayed in graphs and curves in real time, so the process can be analyzed by checking all the sensors, curve values and/or two or more parameter values. Once the information is received and displayed in the SOFTWARE, the user can act on the HARDWARE itself and change values, open valves, etc.

In other words, there is an interaction at all times between the hardware and the user in real time through the SCADA system.

[X] SENSORS/ACTUATORS In general, our sensors are available in the market. We use all types of sensors depending on the level of complexity of the unit and its purpose: temperature sensor, pressure sensor, etc.
[X] CONTROL INTERFACE With the CONTROL INTERFACE we can acquire and send processed data (we eliminate noise, process the information we receive).The diagrams we supplied have the same components allocation that the real unit has.
[X] SOFTWARE Composed by: SUPERVISORY SOFTWARE, CONTROL SOFTWARE, DATA ACQUISITION SOFTWARE, DATA MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE. ALL our software can be supplied in any LANGUAGE.
[X] HARDWARE All EDIBON units consists of the same elements that are used in the INDUSTRY but fully protected.
[X] DAB AND PC The DATA ACQUISION BOARD supplied is the fastest available in the market to obtain data from the HARDWARE.

PHILOSOPHY

During the last 40 years EDIBON has designed several different SCADAs for Teaching and Research Units (all differerent, although with the same philosophy). Thanks to our philosophy, we can quickly and precisely design a NEW SCADA. Our design system and procedure are covered by ISO9001.

COMPLEXITY

The main part of SCADA is CONTROL, so controllers are required. Nearly all industrial companies in the world buy CONTROLLERS from several CONTROL MANUFACTURERS, as Honeywell, Foxboro, Siemens, etc. These industrial companies make their own control system by using the industrial controllers. In EDIBON, we design our OWN CONTROLLERS. This allows us to expand many additional applications, such as SCADA + PLC Control, ESN (EDIBON SCADA – NET), EDIBON Cloud Learning (ECL), etc.

THIS IS THE BASIS OF OUR KNOW-HOW AND OUR TECHNOLOGY

In-house production at our own factories, in Technological Park Móstoles Tecnológico (Madrid), Spain and Leganés – Madrid (Spain).

We product our equipment, including many mechanical pieces which are made on our lathes and milling machines. What is not available in the market, we make. The standard components (mother boards, aluminum profiles, metallic tanks, etc) are subcontracted.

EDIBON has a strong structure which allows us to manufacture not only small teaching units, but also big and sophisticated equipment.
