Case study: NI Labview helps develop wireless data acquisition system for oil and gas drilling download
Using Labview software and Compact Fieldpoint hardware, DSA has provided a customer with a cost-effective tool that allows a drilling team and engineers to wirelessly collect the data they need.
ISC has used CompactRIO and Labview technologies from National Instruments to develop a reliable way to deploy, position and stow giant gripper arms in the sea.
National Instruments was tasked with determining the quality of resistance spot welds made from advanced high-strength steels for automotive applications using the non-destructive evaluation method.
National Instruments and the University of Edinburgh have partnered to develop a test bed to dramatically improve indoor wireless communications capacity. NI PXI Express hardware and NI Labview system design software were used to create the first working prototype of the test bed, showing spatial modulation techniques over a wireless RF channel.
There are many types of pressure sensors, including Wheatstone bridge-based sensors, internally amplified sensors and piezoelectric sensors. This tutorial from National Instruments focuses on internally amplified pressure sensors and considerations for selecting and configuring a pressure measurement system.
