Control Station Expands Network, Adds Rockwell Automation
Control Station announced its alignment with Rockwell Automation through membership in Rockwell Automation’s Encompass Partner Program. The relationship expands Control Station’s access to manufacturers within the process industries, and it facilitates distribution of the company’s award-winning process diagnostic and optimization technologies.
"Control Station's impressive ability to model a wide variety of dynamic and oscillatory processes adds significant value to Rockwell's clients," says Ben Mansfield, Process Product Manager, Rockwell Automation. "By integrating Loop-Pro Tuner with our portfolio and delivering ease-of-use capabilities tailored to PlantPAx systems, Rockwell's users can quickly and easily tune highly complex loops, the first step in any process optimization endeavor."
Loop-Pro's patent-pending Non-Steady State (NSS) Modeling Innovation is said to equip end-users with significant technical and economic advantages when tuning dynamic processes. Loop-Pro software can accurately model and rapidly tune PID controllers in a broader array of industrial applications, including normal operations and the start-up and commissioning of production processes, according to the company.
The AB Version of Loop-Pro Tunerintegrates seamlessly with Rockwell’s RSLinx and FactoryTalk services. Tuner can be launched directly from the end-user’s HMI or it can be used from a computer workstation and automatically scan for existing controllers, including PID, PIDE and AOI configurations. It simplifies the tuning of PID controllers with access to both real-time process data and the associated controller’s configuration. Tuner also accepts data from plant historians for offline analysis and can accurately model open- and closed-loop data.
