Dotx Control Solutions

DotX Control Solutions develops tailor made solutions to challenging control problems that increase the profits of your plant or system.

Our Company

Dotx Control Solutions was founded in 2007 by Dr. Ir. Jan Schuurmans. The pragmatic, structured and efficient approach to solving customers control related problems led to many happy customers. During this time, Dotx noted that most of the problems that customers dealt with can be solved using the same approach. This led to the development of the PID Tuner, which was initially used internally by our own control engineers.

Our Vision

Clearly, control systems that are tuned optimally wil increase efficiency, productivity and quality. Just like Formula One cars. The control optimisation currently requires highly educated, skilled, and experienced people which hampers wides-spread application. We therefore asked ourselves’Can’t we create a software tool for control optimisation that allows everyone to create optimal control systems?’ The answer is our vision: we strive to make control optimisation accessible to anyone.
