Our accelerators at a glance
Following on from our cbb product portfolio, we have developed three accelerators that are based on established software modules and offer additional functionalities in the domains of production, energy management and test bench automation. These software modules aim to shorten your time-to-market, and at the same time give you a high degree of customization.
Digitization, automation and analysis in manufacturing
Current drivers of digitization in manufacturing
Individual solutions in manufacturing, such as wearable technologies, are a first step towards digitization. However, the door to Industry 4.0 is only opened by linking various technological components within the value chain. Current requirements for manufacturing companies are diverse; Minimizing analog and digital set-up times, increasing the ability to plan to produce more flexible or executing maintenance without production downtime, just to name a few.
At the same time, customer expectations increase exponentially in times of great information transparency on the part of consumers. The possibility of producing "batch size one" opens up new levels of customization for products and services for the manufacturing industry. It has been shown that it´s particularly such products and services that are based on data-supported approaches and digitized production processes that are establishing themselves more dominantly in the market.
It is all the more important to develop a well-thought-out and uniform concept for the digitization of a production facility, considering the specifics and peculiarities of each individual system. Use our 25+ years of experience to jointly design and implement a solution for your personal step in the digitization of your production.
cbb solution approach
With our digital accelerator cbb AURIGA, we offer you flexibility and efficiency in your production. By merging digital reality with your physical infrastructure, we enable you to visualize your plant park uniquely to your requirements:
- Use individualized cockpits and dashboards to monitor a wide variety of systems and processes
- Get the best out of your production with automatic machine parameterization
- Harmonize your production processes and disentangle processes on the horizontal and vertical production level
Whether machine connectivity, legally compliant data acquisition or transparency in production processes: cbb AURIGA in conjunction with the cbb edge.UNIFYOR offers you insights into your production, optimizes your operations and provides an overview of the complex processes. Due to the interoperability with other systems, our solution can be implemented quickly and easily. Talk to us and see for yourself!
Energy management and analysis
Energy management challenges
Societal and legal requirements for companies are increasing, and so is the importance of topics such as energy management and efficiency . However, collecting data from all individual actuators can be a tedious and time-consuming challenge.
On the basis of the cbb edge.UNIFYOR, we connect a wide variety of sensors, actuators and systems / machines and record the respective energy data to solve your individual requirements. All data is automatically recorded and stored in a database. After the data has been recorded, it´s automatically processed and checked for plausibility. This data can then be used for your requirements, such as billing or limit value observations. With this solution, you´ll be able to visualize and export your data in real time at the push of a button.
cbb solution approach
Our cbb.LIBRA accelerator is an energy management solution that can significantly reduce the entire overhead cost of your building project's energy consumption. All measurable media used in building technology can be processed in cbb LIBRA, e.g., electricity, water, heat, cold, compressed air, steam, heating oil, diesel, etc. By digitally recording the energy data, you`ll obtain valuable insights and a comprehensive analysis of your energy consumption patterns.
Key functions of cbb LIBRA, such as the detailed management of your measuring devices, groups, limit value observations, production of key figures or cost calculations, will support your ISO 50001 certification. The system is not limited to pure data acquisition, but also enables connectivity, control, and regulation of various producers and consumers.
Test bench automation for consumer and industrial products
Rethinking Test Bench Automation
Increasing demands on testing technology and the increasing complexity of the test benches require novel approaches and methods for testing and certification audits. With cbb ergo.TEST, theoretical simulations and tests of automation scenarios can be built up and understood step by step to theoretically map the complexity and counteract it.
In combination with commercially available simulation software, such as MATLAB or LabVIEW, you can set up a complete individual laboratory station. This will put the rich data set delivered by the complex industrial control technology right at the operator´s fingertips, with customizable dashboards and comprehensive options to visualize the data in any fashion desired.
cbb solution approach
cbb ergo.TEST is a laboratory system for control, measurement, automation, and testing technology. With this system, industrial process automation and control can be simulated, developed and optimized very quickly. The components of the test equipment, in combination with simulation software (e.g., MATLAB, Simulink), form a complete development environment.
With cbb ergo.TEST you can work with Microsoft Windows, without having to use any additional real-time environments. In addition, with this system, simulation and testing of automation scenarios can be set up in a step-by-step manner that is easy to understand and easy to reproduce in practice.
