Intense global competition is pressuring industrial machine builders to deliver machines that meet several demands: higher throughput, reduced operating cost, and more features that improve productivity. For these reasons and more, today’s best-in-class machine builders use NI hardware and software tools to create flexible and highly effective multipurpose machines. Builders can use NI technologies to adopt modern control systems and sophisticated algorithms and integrate high-end electronics into their mechanical machines.
As a way to meet this demands, builders are programming CompactRIO with LabVIEW software. Together, they make it easy to implement command and feedback control without resorting to low-level development tools or custom circuitry. With NI tools, builders can develop rugged system architectures that meet the rigorous requirements of their control systems.
