Process Control System
Designed for Multi-Loop Processes
MANTRA is a state-of-the-art open architected advanced control system. It is a full-blown,
PC-based configurable control system with more than 90 function blocks, configurable
faceplates, and very easy to use, intuitive, drag-and-drop type of function
block programming. See
MANTRA's advanced process control solution has the following advantages:
- Specific solutions for specific applications
The Model Based Controller (MBC) suite allows one to choose a
specific control for a specific application: IMC for 1x1 applications,
CC for 1x3 applications, and MMC for 2x3 applications. The TCM block
is designed specifically for extruder and barrel temperature control.
- Full-blown control capability
A full set of process and logic control functions allows user to build
necessary logic around the MBC module for critical conditions, such
as switchover, ramping, or emergency shutdown.
- Ease of tuning
All control blocks come with an embedded auto-tuning feature. MANTRA
MBC uses a single parameter tuning mechanism which is easy and intuitive
for all users.
- Multivariable control with flexible control scheme
MANTRA MMC is a true multivariable control (for 2x3). It allows one
to use flexible control schemes when dealing with controller saturation.
It also allows user to maintain a target value of one Control Output
(Manipulated Variable) in order to maximize the economy of the whole
- Easy to use and maintain
Difficulties of use and maintenance are big problems for many MBC technologies.
Most MANTRA end-users can maintain, program, and tune the system after
Here's what people are saying about MANTRA:
"MANTRA is an industry first...a truly advanced
process control system with embedded MBC functions."
"The MANTRA system is far superior to any
process control system installed in any of our other plants."
"We estimate that we've spent 30% less time
on engineering so far this year."
"With MANTRA, we have a vast improvement
in the residual chemical concentration control."
"All is going great with MANTRA. I have
had no reason to touch it for months."
