Using the PID Tuner, you can apply the latest insights in control engineering to your industrial environment by the click of a button. PID controllers in any software and hardware environment (e.g. Siemens, Allen Bradley, Omron, Arduino,...) can be optimally tuned with the PID Tuner.

The PID Tuner tunes a PID controller based on a model. This model is obtained from actual data of your machine/system that is controlled by that same PID controller. The procedure to obtain such a model is refered to as identification.


Watch the video to see how it works



Supports both on-line and off-line mode. Comes with extensive data logging options

In on-line mode, the data is obtained in real-time through OPC communication. These data are automatically stored in a local database. Optionally, you can log the data to text files, or to an Azure IoT Hub (a cloud database).
In off-line mode, you can import data from files (csv format).

Extensive Model Identification Options

The PID tuning requires a System Model, and this model is usually obtained from data (model identification). The PID Tuner does not only support identification of the FOTD model, but also SOTD model.

Supports tuning of all PID types

Supports all PID types, among which DeltaV, Siemens, Omron, Rockwell , Yokogawa. Different vendors use different PID types. Therefore, we included all options: the parallel form, direct form, proportional band format and setpoint weight parameters. Scaling parameters, often not published, are found by automatic fitting.
The PID Tuner supports tuning not only the P, I and D constants but also setpoint weighting,
