The PID (proportional, integral, derivative) Tuning Translator from ExperTune converts PID tuning from one industrial PID controller to another.

It can convert values from over 450 industrial PID controllers to the new system. It also helps eliminate errors in commissioning the new controllers. When migration is made from a PLC to a DCS, PID tuning parameters are converted directly to the proper engineering units and time bases for the algorithm, maintaining established dynamic performance of the control loop. In addition, combinations can be customized. Many manufacturers have several different PID algorithms available, and the software also converts between the same manufacturer’s different algorithm types.

Device is said to quickly transfer PID settings during an upgrade to a new control system, saving time and avoiding human error. All loops retain their basis of performance and can converted in hours instead of days.
