Our History

Control Station was founded on the campus of the University of Connecticut in 1988 by Dr. Douglas Cooper. The company was among the first to introduce software simulations to the Chemical Engineering curriculum, immersing students in a dynamic and more intuitive learning experience. Since its introduction the company’s software-based training solution has been licensed to 100s of colleges and universities worldwide, and it remains the cornerstone of a training and skills development offering for academics and industry practitioners alike.

We lead the industry in PID controller tuning solutions. The design of our tuning products are intuitive and have been recognized with awards for their ease-of-use. Equally important, they’re innovative. In 2006 we eliminated the steady-state requirement which previously forced practitioners to steady their processes before software could be used to tune a PID control loop. With introduction of our Non-Steady-State (NSS) Modeling Innovation, we made it possible to accurately model the noisy, oscillatory process conditions that are typical of industrial applications. Control Station’s tuning solutions remain the only suite of products capable of tuning NSS conditions whether the loop is operated in open- or closed-loop as well as with either integrating or non-integrating process.

Our contributions to performance monitoring and process analytics are equally notable. Control Station was among the first to introduce tools for the continuous assessment of control loop performance. Our initial foray into monitoring was in 2004. Utilizing innovations in OPC connectivity, the tool equipped users with real-time trending and statistical analysis of individual controllers. In 2009 we launched a platform technology for proactively monitoring all loops within one or more production facilities. With innovative approaches to data capture, metrics, forensics and analysis, our platform technology stands apart. Today, Control Station is the leading independent vendor of control loop performance monitoring solutions.

For over thirty years the company has harnessed the creative energies of its surroundings, producing an array of best-in-class technologies for improving production efficiency and throughput. Unique capabilities combined with ease-of-use enable customers to finally achieve their process optimization objectives.
