Latest version release of configuration-based software
Published: 5 January 2012 - Michelle Winny
The latest version of configuration-based software for creating real-time testing and simulation applications has been released by National Instruments. The new version includes a real-time stimulus profile tool that expands deterministic test execution with looping and branching structures, composable arithmetic functions and multi-tasking.
Engineers can combine NI VeriStand 2011 with INERTIA, an add-on from Wineman Technology, Inc, which adds a suite of tools for optimised closed-loop control of dynamometer and servo-hydraulic-based test cells.
The new stimulus profile tool increases test development efficiency and system capabilities by making it possible for engineers to quickly create and reuse sophisticated test profiles.
The tool includes an expansive library of structures and operators that significantly decrease test development time and increase test coverage. It is also enhanced with templates for common test routines such as multi-tasking and data logging and includes other features specifically designed to broaden test coverage and simplify code reuse in even the most demanding real-time testing applications.
The INERTIA add-on extends the functionality for dynamometer and servo-hydraulic-based test cell application.
