This technical note explains the basic elements of a proportional integral derivative (PID) control loop and shows you how to use our online PID tuner.

In the online tuner you input specific data for your real-world PID loop. The tuner calculates functional P, I, and D values to tune your loop, as well as a suggested scan time.

The tuner is optimized for Opto 22 Velocity Type C and similar algorithms.
