PlantESP from Control Station makes is easier for engineers to deliver consistent and profitable control. With 100s or even 1,000s of control loops, identifying poorly performing controllers presents a challenge. PlantESP identifies those under performing PIDs automatically, and it guides users to a quick resolution.

Version 2 includes new interaction analysis tools for identifying the root-cause of performance issues, and enhanced reporting tools keep users aware of plant-wide trends that could negatively impact production and profitability.
