Test Systems

Right Ascension develops automated test systems tailored to your specific needs. Data acquisition and automated control applications are critical to every modern manufacturing environment. Reliable hardware and sound design practice are the foundation for our application solutions for your production or research & development environment.

We create user-friendly, accurate, and robust test stands using the latest National Instruments hardware and software for data acquisition and control and we rely on industry leading electromechanical and fluid system hardware to interface with your product.

Right Ascension also works with customers to develop LabVIEW programs for both off-the-shelf and custom hardware control environments.

Our systems have been used across the board through preliminary hardware development testing, hardware qualification testing, and production line acceptance testing.
