SAGINAW, Mich., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wineman Technology, Inc., an international test systems provider, today
Markets known for fast-paced innovation – such as the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries – must often develop large, complex systems with multiple, dependent subsystems. HIL test systems can speed up development by replacing certain physical components of a machine or plant with a simulated environment. For example, an automotive engine control unit (ECU) can be prototyped, developed, and tested using an HIL simulation before the actual engine is even completed.
Expertise Using NI Off-the-Shelf TechnologyWineman Technology specializes in making open, customizable HIL solutions that adapt to ever-changing requirements, increase quality and safety, and decrease time to market. The company offers proven domain knowledge and familiarity with off-the-shelf NI products such as PXI, CompactRIO, LabVIEW, NI VeriStand, and new SLSC (switches, loads, and signal conditioning) hardware, to bring HIL simulation to NI customers in groundbreaking, market-leading applications.
"Wineman Technology has expertise and repeated success in delivering quality automotive HIL solutions built on NI technology," said Michael Hutton, HIL and Real-Time Test Market Development Manager at NI.
"With its potential to reduce our customers' testing costs, we are excited about the future of HIL testing. NI's modular, platform-based approach to I/O provides an excellent opportunity for integrators to develop unique HIL solutions, especially for ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) and autonomous vehicle applications in the automotive sector. We also see exciting potential to combine HIL testing with traditional mechanical test systems to make unique mechatronic test cells," adds Matt Eurich, President of Wineman Technology.
One-Stop Shop for Custom HIL StandsHIL simulators require careful design and tight integration between software and hardware components. Wineman Technology is one of few test integrators that can create everything in-house, from electrical to mechanical to fluid systems. Plus, as two-time winner of the NI Alliance Partner Gold Level Outstanding Technical Resources award, Wineman Technology has demonstrated technical excellence with its large number of certified LabVIEW programmers and extensive work with NI VeriStand real-time test software.
Continued Investment in HIL SystemsWineman Technology's past and current clients for HIL applications include Lear, Inalfa Roof Systems, and UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS). The company has also recently released products that apply to HIL simulation, such as:
