PID Translator Converts Between Controllers
ExperTune's PID Tuning Translator easily converts PID tuning from one industrial PID controller to another. It converts PID values from any of over 490 different industrial PID controllers to the new system.For example, when migrating from a PLC to a DCS, the PID tuning parameters are converted directly to the proper units and time bases for the algorithm choice. This maintains the established dynamic performance of the control loop.John Gerry, President of ExperTune said "Customers have loudly requested the ability to quickly transfer PID settings when upgrading to a new control system. The Translator does that, saving time and avoiding human error".John Gerry continued, "On a typical DCS conversion project, loop re-tuning can take days, or even weeks. With PID Tuning Translator, all loops retain their basis of performance, and are converted in just hours."The software converts PID settings from any DCS, controller, or PLC to any other DCS, controller or PLC. In addition to the included 490 PID algorithms, you can customize your own combinations. Many manufacturers have several different PID algorithms available, and the software also converts between different algorithm types within a single manufacturer's controller.
