IBIS data logger with memory

In public transport vehicles the communication of electronic devices normally takes place via the IBIS carriage bus. ILONA provides the possibility to “listen” to the data traffic taking part on the bus and if required, to transmit data. The received data are recorded and can be used for later analysis. The recording on-board takes place independently, that means without connection to a PC. All telegrams on the IBIS call and response bus are time stamped and stored on a CF-card. This data can be subsequently transmitted to a PC and processed as needed. The recorded telegrams can be viewed and edited easily with any text editor.

The main difference between ILONA our system IBO is the independent recording of data. The recording may be done without any supervision over several days without the need for a PC being connected. ILONA features an integrated battery and operates independently of the on-board power supply for several hours. You can view the current status of the system and the data currently received on the integrated display. Records can simply be started or finished via the front integrated control elements.

The Software Analysis Tool - Accessories

Optionally, the software provides you with a comfortable analysis tool. The analysis tool is featured with an intuitive interface that makes it possible to decode effectively the individual recorded telegrams. The recorded telegrams can be printed and exported to Excel. Further on you can scroll through the recorded data and search for the requested information. The displayed telegrams can be enriched with custom comments. To keep the display clear, filters can be defined to make the essential information rapidly available to the user and based on the received telegrams. These filters are used to reduce the table view to the most interesting telegrams, while still receiving all telegrams, only their display is suppressed.

One significant function of the IBIS carriage bus is to send telegrams, which control the displays of public transport vehicles. The analysis tool allows you to simulate displays for both interior and exterior displays, as well as for lines and destinations.
