  • $44.17

ViewPID is our new easy to use Windows PC program that monitors and records the performance of your PID controller (such as our Novus 1100, 1200, 2000 and 3000 controllers) The PC is simply connected to the PID controller with a RS-232 or RS-485 connection. The software then communicates with the Process controller using Modbus Protocol.

By connecting your PC to your PID controller using a RS-232 or RS-485 serial connection, ViewPID software interrogates your controller for the following values using Modbus protocol:

  • Process Variable
  • Setpoint
  • Output
  • Proportional Gain K
  • Integral Gain Ki
  • Differential Gain Kd
