FP Data Analyzer

This software tool is used to read and display PLC data. Data can be stored in a file and analyzed in offline mode, which helps to perform failure diagnostics and system optimization.

Reading and visualisation of PLC data

The FP Data Analyzer can be connected to any Panasonic PLC by utilizing the integrated MEWNET Manager, for instance via any COM port. Recording and analyzing remote PLCs, sensors, actuators, etc. via LAN or modem is just a matter of seconds.


PLC software FP Data Analyzer features Panasonic Industry

The FP Data Analyzer is a software tool used to read and display PLC data. Such data can be stored in a file and analysed in offline mode. The tool can be used for:

  • Performing failure diagnostics
  • Finding and isolating failures
  • Performing analyses, system optimization, scan time reduction
  • Documenting processes
  • Shortening the time between setup and operation
  • Carrying out machine maintenance
  • Improving development

Possible fields of application

  • The machine does not work as expected. From time to time an error occurs, but you do not know why.
    With the FP Data Analyzer, you can connect to a PLC, configure data to be analysed and set a trigger to start analysis when the error flag occurs. You also can set a pre-trigger time to check events that occurred before the error.
  • You need to archive historical data from the plant.
    You can connect the tool to a PLC and read the data to be archived. You can set the scan time to read the data once a day or every hour … You can also write a small function block that archives the data in an array in the PLC's memory. If the memory is full, you can connect the FP Data Analyzer to the PLC, upload the data, archive and analyse it.
  • With the XY mode you can observe multiple axis movements.
    For example, you can watch the circular interpolated movement of two axes using FP-Sigma.
