Transportation and Heavy Equipment
Companies that invest in heavy machinery for transit, loading and unloading supplies, construction, or farming can maximize uptime and minimize costs by using predictive maintenance and remote diagnostics.
Smart automation of machine vision and advanced motion control systems can help companies increase efficiency and accuracy.
Off-highway equipment is large and complex. Anticipating repairs and addressing issues early can save time and money. A condition monitoring system allows engineers to understand the health of machinery and avoid downtime.
Test cells combine industrial machinery with precision control and laboratory-quality measurements to replicate real-world environments.
CompactRIO and LabVIEW increased farm productivity, reduced machine operating costs, and provided a secure Internet gateway to remotely monitor and control a turf harvester.
NI hardware and software helped the London Underground reduce lost customer hours by 39,000 per year—an estimated ￡350,000 savings per year.
NI CompactRIO and NI LabVIEW are used for specialized, continuous monitoring for electromechanical mining shovels, enabling predictive maintenance for these rugged machines.
