CyboSoft and SIXNET Announce Partnership
Embedded MFA Control Software for SIXNET’s
October 5, 2004 – CyboSoft (Rancho
Cordova, Calif.) and SIXNET (Clifton Park, NY) today announced
partnership by introducing CyboCon IPm software that is a
successful integration of CyboSoft’s Model Free Adaptive
(MFA) control technology in SIXNET’s IPm open system
According to Steve Schoenberg, SIXNET President and co-founder,
"Today, the automation industry is realizing the advantages
of open systems and SIXNET is a leader in the innovation and
promotion of open systems. The result of combining our IPm
Open DCS Controller with the CyboSoft’s Model-Free Adaptive
control technology is an extraordinary value for our customers
CyboSoft Chairman and CEO Dr. George Cheng said, “SIXNET’s
IPm is an impressive real-time box. One of our customers recently
launched 29 MFA controllers in a complex control application
using one IPm unit and achieved great control and economic
MFA is considered an industry breakthrough.
No other comparable technology possesses all the attributes
of MFA. Based on the core MFA technology, CyboSoft has developed
a set of general-purpose MFA controllers, each of which solves
a tough control problem. MFA controllers do not require process
models. Once installed, no controller tuning is required.
In most cases, MFA controllers can directly replace the legacy
controllers such as PIDs and achieve immediate improvements
in control performance resulting in significant economic benefits.
The SixTRAK IPm™ product is the ultimate process controller
with the power of open Linux software. Its powerful communications
and advanced programming capabilities make it the perfect
solution for process control, SCADA, or DCS applications.
Though it is built-on the open LINUX operating system, no
knowledge of LINUX is required in most applications.
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 the network. MFA controllers
running inside the IPm interact with the SIXNET hardware I/O
via the IPm I/O database. Now, to avoid manual tuning or building
process models, an IPm user can simply select the appropriate
MFA, replace the PID, configure and launch the controller,
and reap the benefits of adaptive and robust control with
no manual tuning and maintenance required.
