MKS Controls Workbench (CWB)
Automation Software for MKS Controls Products
MKS Controls Workbench (CWB) is a central interface for communicating with most MKS controllers, including ECM, MultiTherm™, and MKS Automation Platform products. Access, monitor, and remotely control all MKS controllers from a single PC running the CWB application. MKS Controls Workbench (CWB) communicates to MKS devices using Modbus TCP/IP protocol, enabling Ethernet communication to all compatible MKS devices.
MKS Controls Workbench (CWB) can create custom dashboards for individual or multiple MKS controllers on the same network. Each CWB dashboard can be configured with digital readouts of temperature loops, Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs), and generic analog and digital IO channels, for manual control of a single or multiple processes with a one interface.
When used with MKS MultiTherm™ temperature controllers, MKS Controls Workbench (CWB) provides support and configuration for advanced options including model-based temperature control, cascading loops, autotuning, and PID gain scheduling. MKS autotuning algorithms included in MKS Controls Workbench (CWB) are proven to deliver improved performance for temperature control over existing solutions.
