PiControl Solutions, LLC develops and distributes process control software and technology that interfaces with distributed control systems (DCSs) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs), including specialty laboratory information management system PiLims.


Technology and products


PiLims is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) "that allows an operator, technician or engineer to enter data on a Windows Server-based computer and then pass the data into a [distributed control system] or [programmable logic controller]."[1] The company further describes this specialty LIMS as follows:

PiLims can be created with a custom user interface specifying the names of the laboratory samples and tagnames. After each laboratory value is available, both the time stamp and the laboratory sample value can be entered into the computer screen. After validation and release by the user, the data is then written out into the DCS or PLC.[1]
