What Is MeasurementLink?

MeasurementLink is a software framework that connects the disparate workflows of manual measurements, test automation, and debugging for validation and production test engineers. This allows engineers to focus on validation and test instead of software infrastructure.

Product Features

Extensible Software Framework for Test and Measurement

A MeasurementLink plug-in displaying graph data

MeasurementLink connects interactive measurement, test automation, and debugging workflows from InstrumentStudio software and TestStand to build a more efficient methodology for validation and production test engineers. The MeasurementLink plug-in framework provides a no-code configuration experience for engineering teams.

What does MeasurementLink offer?

  • Connects interactive and automated workflows by sharing configured measurement setup
  • Provides tools to develop measurement plug-ins that use NI or third-party hardware
  • Enables code reuse in LabVIEW as well as Python and other languages
  • Reduces correlation issues and debugging time

Why MeasurementLink?

What Can I Do with MeasurementLink?

Shift the focus back to your products. You are a measurement expert, and you know your products best. Don’t let your test software framework be a bottleneck. MeasurementLink can provide the software infrastructure you need.

I was positively surprised how smooth the pilot went. MeasurementLink has great potential to integrate multiple different tools into one framework and one workflow for measurement abstraction and combining and reusing existing measurements in other languages more easily.
