From larger manufacturing companies to smaller development environments
From Smaller Projects to Overall Solutions
Are you going to make a smaller adjustment of your test system? Or is it rather time for you to have an analysis and assessment of a new automation system done?
At GPower, we are among the leading experts in Europe to build specialized measuring instruments, controllers, and signal generators for automation, simulation, and test projects.
We Do Automation
When you exchange manual processes for automated ones, you will instantly achieve more stability, increased safety, and a higher level of efficiency. For instance, in terms of trackability, quality-improvement, safety-optimization or simply to decrease the number of manual tasks.
Not all processes are necessary to automate. But determining which ones are relevant and which ones are not can perhaps be difficult. When you get us to analyze your processes, we will be able to provide you with the answers.
We Do Test
When we state that it is beneficial to test products and processes, we do so because testing makes it possible to discover errors and flaws as well as it gives the opportunities to develop more efficient processes and increase the quality of the products.
Whenever we test a product or a process, we do it economically. Instead of testing every possible function we only test those that are relevant to you. Which functions are most important to test, and which are not necessary? We constantly ask ourselves these kinds of questions when we asses and evaluate your products and processes in terms of creating a new test system or upgrading existing ones.
We Do Simulation
When we create simulators, which are electronic models of reality, we do it for both practical and financial reasons. Besides being expensive, impractical and time-consuming to test and develop functions in large machinery such as wind turbines and freight-ships, it can also prove to be more or less impossible if a product does not yet exist or is merely an idea at the moment.
Because our simulators do not require connection to actual hardware that means we can make your expensive and yet-to-be-developed projects a reality. As an example, we develop simulators to test the functions in airplanes. An otherwise dangerous and impractical test becomes possible through our simulators.
We Build Instruments
The cornerstone of our instruments is that we define the software ourselves thereby making them extremely flexible. That means we can quickly and easily adjust and modify the instruments and continuously customize them to your specific projects.
That may sound expensive and time-consuming – but that is not the case. In fact, you will save both time and money since we have made sure to build our instruments from trusted and solid building-blocks, so that we do not have to start from scratch whenever we take on a new project.
We do projects in various industries
When does it make sense to automate your processes, and should all your processes be automated in order to achieve the desired productivity? By producing a thorough analysis of procedures and processes, we assess where you can achieve the greatest effects.
It is important to document the quality of your products which can be achieved by means of traceability in the production. At GPower, we provide solutions that ensure this kind of traceability as well as your processes.
Do you have a need to run a lot of measurements to evaluate whether a process works as specified? By means of an automated test system, we facilitate the measurement process, save the results, and ensure the quality.
Do you have one or more processes that should be optimized for the purpose of increasing the efficiency or the security? Did you know that our industrial controllers solve tasks like this with far more flexibility and customization than the traditional solutions at the market?
Are you observing the guidelines, set of rules, and legislation for your industry? By means of test and measurement, we can for instance analyze and assess whether you follow the existing guidelines.
By selecting your measurements, you will only be focusing on valuable data sets. Our solutions ensure a high quality in terms of data collection – solutions focusing on data quality rather than data quantity regarding data logging.
Are you going to make ongoing control of oil pressure, vibrations, or heat emission on ships or cars among others? By means of data from our customized instruments, you can, among other things, optimize your consumption as well as increase your security.
Are you going to measure a slowly, changing temperature or a rapid change in speed? Our instruments can be implemented on either new or existing systems in industries related to wind or electronic production among others.
Based on a standardized, but at the same time modular system consisting of basic libraries and well-proven modules, we deliver high-quality solutions.
In many cases, we provide software solutions that only consist of 20-30% new source code resulting in lower costs.
Shorter Development Time
By reusing elements from ‘Project A’ and ‘Project B’ in ‘Project C’, we shorten the development time and and improve our quality assurance compared to developing the software from scratch.
As we define the software ourselves, it allows us to customize your instruments or systems easily and quickly, just as we can make customizations based on your needs – and on an ongoing basis.
The Advantage of Modular Software
Moving away from traditional instrument and system solutions within test, measurement, and control.
The Best Certification Average in Denmark
At GPower, we are among the highest certified LabVIEW and TestStand teams in Europe. Both are software products from NI (National Instruments). Moreover, we are also the team with the highest NI certification average in Denmark.
At the same time, we are also the only team that represents developers who are all certified in both LabVIEW and TestStand. Certifications that are supported by no less than two LabVIEW Champions.
What Our Customers Say
With ProFactory, we have a complete test system for our wind turbines generators. Previously, we had challenges with automated tests in terms of system flexibility and repeatable measurement results. Now, our system is secure and modular, making it possible to replace our instruments easily and quickly, while still making completely accurate measurements. GPower is a competent and preferred supplier who – in addition to being leading experts in testing and measurement – also manages to handle project management in relation to everything from project planning and budgets to subcontractors.
We chose GPower to develop a measurement and data collection system that we should use to validate our calculation models in order to optimize our wind turbines. One of the requirements was, among other things, that the system should be able to measure blade dynamics at lengths up to 80 meters. In addition, it should also be able to forward measurement results to our data collection system. Requirements that GPower has fulfilled to a great extent. We will definitely recommend GPower to others who need experts for innovative development projects regarding test and measurement.
The number of electronic components in our production, which require quality assurance, has increased. GPower was quick to understand the task. We did professional back-and-forth in terms of how to solve the task, and we defined the framework for a professional cooperation. GPower has created a robust test system that provides additional value in addition to catching defects. Even the feedback along the way has been educational regarding our components. In certain cases, GPower has brought up its own specialists for a few hours of problem solving, which would have cost us several workdays. We will definitely recommend GPower to others who need to complete projects in a faster way.
Although we prefer to do projects in-house, GPower is our preferred partner when LabVIEW and TestStand experts are needed. For instance, in order to implement specific test sequences and develop complex test solutions for our production tests, which GPower has fulfilled to a great extent. In addition, GPower has also been our lifeline for deployment of new test equipment and general software updates. We highly recommend GPower to others who need test and measurement experts for small as well as large-scale software projects that you have neither the time nor resources to handle.
We chose GPower on the basis of their expertise in LabVIEW-based programming. They were very quick to understand our specific needs. Furthermore, they had a very flexible approach in terms of meeting our wishes, just as they have been accurate in their communication from day one – both before and during the cooperation. Besides solving our programming challenges, GPower was also educational in terms of new aspects of LabVIEW-based programming. The cooperation with GPower has been easy, educational, and effective. We highly recommend GPower.
I contacted GPower due to errors on our existing TestStand sequences after converting our test system from LabVIEW 2014 and TestStand 2014 to, respectively, LabVIEW 2018 and TestStand 2017. By using Remote Support, GPower could easily and quickly help us solve the problem by connecting to our production machines. After fixing the errors, they also helped us with the subsequent conversion process. We clearly recommend GPower to others who need LabVIEW or TestStand experts here and now, but also in the long run.
