What defines the IPCOS’ INCATools?

  • INCA PID Tuner: PID tuning tool for tuning all PID loops on all common DCS and PLC systems. Based on engineering specifications (tracking or disturbance rejection performance). For tuning individual PID loops.
  • INCA AptiTune: PID tuning tool for tuning all PID loops on all common DCS and PLC systems. Based on engineering specifications (tracking or disturbance rejection performance). For tuning individual and interacting PID loops.
  • INCA Sensor: Softensing toolkit to estimate quality parameters like concentrations, Melt Index, Particle Size distributions, Density,…..
  • INCA MPC: A popular MPC tool used in the (Petro)chemical, fertilizer, power, waste and cement industry around the world.
  • Flexible licensing models. We offer perpetual licenses, term licenses and pay as you go license in the Cloud.

Best practices

  • Look beyond the controllers. Look at the process, the instruments, the actuators.
  • Tune the controllers optimally for the job they need to do (setpoint tracking and/or disturbance rejection)
  • Robust controllers can make your life more easy (less gain scheduling or complicated control setups)
  • Document all the modifications in a clear way
