An automotive customer that develops batteries needed a custom program to monitor and control an energy test.  The energy test consisted of 20 electrical loads connected to 20 battery cells that were controlled with a digital output.  Each cell needed be discharged until the cell reaches a user specified level.  The battery voltage needed to be monitored and saved to an excel file.  The excel file needed to be a template that contained a user defined macro for data analysis.

We developed this system using LabVIEW, a National Instruments multifunction data acquistion board, and custom circuits boards designed by the customer and McGilvra Engineering.

A simple user interface was developed along with an installer to make distributing this application to multiple targets very simple.
