New electrical toolkit caters to power industry

National Instruments announces the LabVIEW Electrical Power Suite, a new toolkit specific to the power industry. With the new suite, engineers can combine an NI CompactRIO system for power measurement with more than 50 signal and sensor modules.

For example, engineers can combine standard IEC, EN, and IEEE algorithms with the custom capability of NI LabVIEW system design software and NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware. Further, engineers and scientists can now develop a custom three-phase power monitoring, metering, or quality analysis application using LabVIEW.

Using this toolkit, engineers can also integrate power measurements with temperature, pressure, sound, vibration and control I/O for a complete monitoring system.

LabVIEW Electrical Power Suite Features:

  • Industry-standard power analysis for graphical system design: Create systems that combine power measurements with other sensors and signals.
  • Full, streaming access to raw, time-based waveform data: Implement diagnostic algorithms that may be unique to a local power service.
  • Ready-to-run example programs: Integrate power analysis functions such as energy, frequency, voltage unbalance, and event detection into a full test or monitoring system.
