CyboCon IPm - MFA inside SIXNET IPm

What's New
What's the Big Deal
What's the Benefit
Embedded Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) controllers inside SIXNET's IPm. Combines the power of MFA control and a truly open yet flexible control platform. Offers OEMs and end users a cost-effective advanced control solution to achieve quick ROI.

Left: When MFA (top) and PID (bottom) start from the same oscillating control condition, PID will continue to oscillate while MFA will quickly adapt to an excellent control condition. Right: SIXNET's IPm Open DCS Controller.

Embedded MFAs in IPm
MFA controls the processes that are too difficult for PID controllers to handle. MFA is the only "No Model" advanced controller on the market that can control complex systems without the use of first-principle mathematical models or models based on dynamic modeling. Once installed, no tuning of controller parameters is required.

Better control means improved process stability, higher production efficiency and yield, consistent product quality, and reduced material and energy waste.
CyboCon IPm is a network version of CyboSoft's flagship CyboCon software product and is seamlessly integrated in SIXNET's system. By using SIXNET's I/O Toolkit software on a PC, a user can configure MFA controllers and then download the configured files to the IPm over Ethernet. MFA controllers running inside the IPm interact with the SIXNET hardware I/O via the IPm I/O database.

CyboCon IPm accesses standard IPm I/O registers and works seamlessly with ISaGRAF programs and all other IPm applications and SCADA software, such as Citect, Intellution, and Wonderware

SISO MFA to replace PID to eliminate manual tuning,
Nonlinear MFA to control extremely nonlinear processes,
Anti-delay MFA to control processes with large time delays,
Robust MFA to keep process variable within defined bounds,
Feedforward MFA to deal with measurable disturbances, and
MFA pH to control pH processes.
