We consider control of multiple stable first-order systems which have a control coupling described by an M-matrix. These agents are subject to incremental sector-bounded nonlinearities. We show that such plants can be globally asymptotically stabilized to a unique equilibrium using fully decentralized proportional integral anti-windup-equipped controllers subject to local tuning rules. In addition, we show that when the nonlinearities correspond to the saturation function, the closed-loop asymptotically minimizes a weighted 1-norm of the agents state mismatch. The control strategy is finally compared to other state-of-the-art controllers on a numerical district heating example.
