CIM Industrial system wins Green Engineering Award at NI week 2011
"The Graphical System Design Achievement awards recognize the engineers and scientists who are using the NI graphical system design approach to develop and deploy groundbreaking solutions to some of the world's greatest engineering and scientific challenges," said Dr. James Truchard, president, CEO and cofounder of National Instruments. "These engineers and scientists are testing the boundaries of innovation to create products and applications that can have significant impact on the world."
The Green Engineering Award was presented to Vestas Wind Systems and CIM Industrial Systems A/S for designing and testing the durability of a wind turbine drivetrain. By using LabVIEW software and NI CompactRIO hardware, the test system increases the structural reliability of the gearbox and contributes to longer uptimes and lower turbine costs, resulting in the lowest cost per kilowatt hour in the wind energy market.scientists are testing the boundaries of innovation to create products and applications that can have significant impact on the world."
