National Instruments (NI) has announced the release of NI Measurement Studio 8.1, a comprehensive suite of class libraries and user interface controls for test, measurement and automation applications built using Microsoft Visual Studio.

According to NI, Measurement Studio 8.1 simplifies and accelerates remote monitoring and control with new network variables that help engineers communicate between Microsoft Windows or Web-based applications and remote test machines. The solution also introduces new user interface controls and extended graph functionality to help engineers better inspect acquired data.

Engineers can combine new network variables featured in Measurement Studio 8.1 with Microsoft ASP.NET Web Forms controls originally introduced in Measurement Studio 8.0 to extend remote monitoring and control capabilities. ASP.NET controls give engineers the infrastructure to create dynamic Web pages that they can view from Web-enabled devices such as PDAs, smart phones and Linux, Mac OS or Microsoft Windows machines. Network variables publish or subscribe to measurement data acquired from remote systems designed in Microsoft Visual Basic 2005, Microsoft Visual C# 2005, National Instruments LabWindows/CVI or NI LabVIEW. This combination enables engineers to create Web interfaces for real-time or Windows distributed test systems.

Measurement Studio 8.1 also delivers new user interface enhancements to help engineers better acquire, analyze and present their measurement data. The new interactive run-time controls give engineers the option to modify control settings while their applications are running, making it easy for them to customize their user experiences and enhance their interactions with their applications. In addition, the solution delivers enhancements such as error bands on the Microsoft .NET Framework-based graphs and the ability to add cursors, annotations and tooltips to the Complex Graph to help engineers improve the documentation and visual inspection of their data.

Measurement Studio promises reduced application development time by giving engineers a single environment for creating test, measurement and automation applications in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 and integrating them with a wide variety of I/O.

Measurement Studio 8.1 is priced at $499.
