MapleSim™ Connector for LabVIEW™ and NI VeriStand™ Software

Maplesoft™ today announced a product upgrade that extends connectivity to key hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) products from National Instruments™ (NI). In addition to connectivity to NI LabVIEW™, this updated MapleSim add-on also lets users connect to the new NI VeriStand™ product. NI VeriStand™ is a ready-to-use software environment for configuring real-time testing applications, including HIL test systems. The MapleSim Connector for LabVIEW™ and NI VeriStand™ software integrates MapleSim's rich modeling environment into the popular LabVIEW™ and NI VeriStand™ real-time platforms. Engineers using LabVIEW™ or NI VeriStand™ can quickly develop and optimize complex engineering system models in the intuitive visual modeling environment of MapleSim.

16 km of SilentTrackTM are used to reduce noise on a new commuter route in SYDNEY suburbs

Almost 50 000 SilentTrack dampers have been used on the Epping to Chatswood Rail Line, in the suburbs of Sydney. SilentTrackTM is a dynamic damper developed by Tata Steel which significantly reduces the noise generated by railway traffic. A world exclusive, SilentTrackTM is capable of reducing noise generated by the track itself by an average of 4 to 6 dB(A), depending on the form of the track.
