Engine research and development are driving the need for more precise and highly repeatable test systems that are also easily adaptable to a variety of scenarios required for engine and drivetrain testing.
NI Expertise Overview
With the new international focus on stricter emissions testing, the market for combustion engine test cells has flourished. As a result, there is a need for more advanced technology to perform the necessary tests. Traditional test methods have remained relatively stable for decades. However, instrumentation has advanced considerably in recent years. NI delivers modern exhaust emissions test cells that use the most advanced test methods to ensure engineers get what they need: real-time results based on accurate data.
The CompactRIO Test Cell Control and Monitoring System helps customers achieve those goals. NI software and VeriStand test system configuration help customers get up and running faster. You can connect sensors and tune parameters to start controlling loads immediately. The number of control loops can just as easily be expanded to meet more complex application needs.
The NI Powertrain Controls systems incorporate the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture to create flexible and capable combustion analysis and engine control systems.
