Technology from National Instruments has been used in the development of a rapid prototyping platform for Alma Automotive to implement a real-time control system for an internal combustion engine.
National Instruments (NI) has arranged a four-part webcast series — set to take place in June 2013 — designed to explore the digital technologies that are enabling better power quality measurements and system health diagnostics and the distributed intelligent control systems that are allowing the grid to localise faults.
ENG Systems has helped battery producer Sanyo to develop special measurement and testing machines using Labview software from National Instruments.
National Instruments (NI) and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) are extending their technology partnership through 2019, with the latest phase centring on the creation of Athena, an embedded robotics control platform that is designed to be used with NI’s Labview system design software.
Veski, a specialist in vibration analysis and diagnostics, has used Labview and CompactRIO to build a customisable system with software to help 11 Croatian power plants reduce the cost of generator maintenance and repair.
