Manchester, CT, October 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Control Station today announced that PlantESP™ and Loop-Pro™ have been selected as finalists for the 2016 Engineers’ Choice Awards. The recognition by CFE Media’s Control Engineering Magazine positions Control Station as one of only two suppliers with product finalists in the software applications and diagnostics categories. The recognition reinforces Control Station’s position as the leading supplier of industrial-grade process diagnostics and optimization solutions for real-world production applications.
PlantESP actively monitors the performance of PID control loops on a plant-wide basis and it simplifies both the identification of performance issues and the isolation of the associated root-causes. PlantESP now includes a unique optimization utility called TuneVue™ that proactively captures everyday output changes for the purpose of isolating control loops that are in need of tuning. TuneVue leverages Control Station’s proprietary NSS Modeling Innovation, and it is the only such utility that can accurately model the noisy, oscillatory dynamics that are typical of industrial production and control environments.
Loop-Pro Tuner Premium is the latest addition to Control Station’s award-winning suite of process modeling and PID controller tuning products. Tuner Premium simplifies the tuning of major PLC and DCS manufacturers, accessing process data via OPC for live tuning sessions as well as importing common flat text files for offline tuning sessions. Tuner Premium accurately models the highly variable dynamics typical of both integrating and non-integrating processes.
The annual Engineers’ Choice Awards is based on a poll of Control Engineering Magazine’s subscribership of over 80,000 practitioners, services providers and vendors. It recognizes leading suppliers of hardware- and software-based technologies used in the automation of industrial manufacturing. Control loop diagnostic and optimization solutions from Control Station have been recognized on numerous occasions with awards from Control Engineering Magazine and other media outlets. Control Station and Honeywell Process Solutions are the only suppliers with finalists in the software applications and diagnostics categories.
