analyzes dynamic test data. The Protuner is available in components or as a complete
Now in its 6th generation, the Protuner
32 software is a suite of 32 bit Windows® programs for data acquisition,
data analysis, and simulation. It was designed from the ground up for testing, trouble
shooting, tuning, and optimizing installed single loop and complex multivariable
regulatory control systems. No other analysis or tuning package contains such a complete
set of tools, proprietary analysis algorithms, or the testing and analysis know-how.
system optimization requires recording real time open and closed loop test data on an
operating control system. The Protuner 32 Data Acquisition program was designed to
take maximum advantage of open system standards and functions for importing test data
stored in other formats. Data acquisition interfaces seamlessly integrate the task of
acquiring real time test data with all PLC, DCS, analog, and even pneumatic control
systems using one of the three available interface drivers.
|Connect to any OPC Local or Network Server
Direct or network connection to your system using a control system specific
OPC Server and the Protuner generic OPC driver. OPC Servers can be found at www.opcfoundation.org.
|Connect to system
using any DDE or NetDDE Server
Record data directly through user supplied DDE server software. The DDE
software turns the Protuner into a DDE Client allowing for direct data gathering from
various control systems.
|Connect to Protuner 1600 Interface
The Protuner 1600 Interface Module records data in
parallel with control system signals. The Protuner 1600 module features a rugged 4 channel
modular design to connect in parallel with your system I/O. Up to four modules can be
daisy chained to record a maximum of 16 analog channels.
