- NI cRIO FPGA Controllers for Monitoring and Alarming
Our LabVIEW™ Development Team has provided professional engineering applications to our customers since 2001. Most of these applications transform mechanical data into useful engineering data in the form of organized reports or machine feedback. We have developed both windows based and real-time applications that have been used to monitor vibration, strain, temperature and load.

- LabVIEW™ Application Design
Mechanical & Structural Design & Test Consulting
Our team of senior technical consultants have decades of experience in design validation and problem solving in the structural dynamics, durability, and rotating machinery fields. Often our solutions use combined testing and finite element analysis to first understand the structure’s key mechanics and then to develop design improvements.
- System Design Analysis
- Test Consulting
- Structural Validation
