SATCO self-tuning & adaptive

The SATCO is a self-tuning and adaptive temperature controller for unknown distances and does not require any controller parameterization.

Advantages of SATCO

  • Plug & Control
    controller parameterization unnecessary
  • Multi-zone control
    freely-configurable heating zones
  • Robust, adaptive control concept
    compensation of disturbances and model inaccuracies
    adaption to system variances
  • Increased efficiency
    for set-up processes
    for set-up changes
  • Flexible delivery options
    from the pure controller module up to end-to-end solutions

Application fields

  • Temperature control of systems dominated by thermal conduction, such as metal blocks in the plastics processing industry or casting moulds
  • Deployment as retrofit

Existing problems of common methods

  • Controller parameterization necessary. Autotuning procedures are time-consuming and presume sepcific know-how.
  • Information about the system to be controlled is required.
  • Decreasing quality of the resulting control quality due to model inaccuracies or disturbances.
