Auto-Tuning PID Controllers

 

 

PID (proportional with integral and derivative) controllers combine proportional control with two additional adjustments to automatically compensate for changes in the system. The integral and derivative adjustments are expressed in time-based units and referred to by their reciprocals, RESET and RATE.

 

Single-loop, auto-tuning temperature controllers automatically set PID control parameters for optimum system performance. Manual settings also permit on-off, P, PI or PID control modes. Auto-tuning temperature controllers supplied by Southwest Heater & Controls are designed and manufactured to withstand harsh industrial environments.
