What we do
Computer Controlled Solutions Ltd provide first class LabVIEW based software, signal conditioning and turnkey solutions to a wide spectrum of high profile industries. We also specialise in LabVIEW consultancy services and bespoke training.
Being National Instruments Alliance members since 1994, CCS has built up a vast network of expertise and experience covering many industrial sectors.
By maximising the expertise of our two fully qualified Certified Labview Architects, TestStand Architect and Developers, our team are always ready to take on the challenge of solving your engineering problems in a fast, efficient and cost effective manner.
The team at CCS are proud of their reputation for providing our customers with a service which exceeds their expectations. Our Gold Star Rating in our ISO9001 customer satisfaction survey provides us with a benchmark from which we aim to consistently improve.
How do we go about that?
You do what you are good at, CCS will do what we are good at.
To many of our customers, the ‘control system’ is the unknown, but they are happy with the mechanical side. Perfect! You do the hardware, we’ll do the control system. This results in rigs well moulded to a customer’s needs.
For example it has resulted in: A brake dynamometer for AP Racing, Fuel/Oxygen control and acquisition for Rocket testing at Moog, and Aerospace component testing to name just a few.
The rig lasts for years but the control system belongs in the museum!
Most bits of metal don’t change but control systems certainly have. They’re cheaper and faster, with better operator displays and connectivity. We can have a look, keep the good bits and replace the bad bits. This approach is very cost effective, and has been used on many old servo hydraulic based rigs.
For example it has resulted in:
Aileron test rig revamp: replacing the control cabinet and tying in with existing hydraulics control. A very tidy approach, saving a lot of design time and money.
Thrust Reverser Actuator test rig: same story, big savings.
Steering Column test rig revamp: again, sending the old control cabinet to the local museum, wiring in a new one and connecting to the existing mechanics and power pack.
Leave it to CCS.
We can provide the complete solution. Electrical drive, hydraulic or pneumatic based, that’s what we do!
For example we have provided: Modelling tables, caliper test rigs and quad space damper rigs.

AP Racing required a new type of Dynamometer which could match the high speed and acceleration rates achieved by Formula 1 cars. Also of importance was a design which could carry out these tests within the actual sections of car’s standard wheel and suspension assembly, mimicking the airflow through ducting and around the brake.
Abstract Magal Engineering required an end of line test rig to provide a traceable quality standard of clutch drive plates in order to supply Original Equipment (OE) parts to the automotive industry. Of importance were high….
