Custom test & measurement solutions
Octinion is the ideal partner for all your measurement challenges. A specific set-up may be required to measure the performance of your machine, or get more insight in the process.
A custom solution can range from a general purpose system with a custom configuration or some specific software to a fully custom designed mechatronic system with custom mechanics, electronics and software. We make elaborate use of our standard software and hardware components, which helps to keep the cost under control, and is also important for maintainability and support of custom solutions.
Clearly the development effort and the cost of such a solution will depend on the degree of customization. Following questions are important to assess the scope of the development:
Do you need a specific mechanical set-up?
Even if the answer is yes, you may still use a standard measurement system combined with a custom mechanical set-up which keeps the budget under control
How long will you be using the set-up?
This determines how much cost you can save by using a custom solution that only contains the essential components.
How specific are the requirements?
The more specific, the more a custom solution may answer your needs. This typically occurs when you have a limited number of very diverse measurements such as 1 thermocouple measurement, 1 audio-input, 3 analog outputs to control some actuator and so on.
How many set-ups do you need?
With increasing quantities, the development cost and the cost of the specific set-up becomes smaller on a unit-basis. Even for small series a custom set-up may even be cheaper than a set-up with standard components!
What makes us different?
Octinion products aim at making life simpler. We want to improve the quality of measurements and reduce the level of required expertise. In our perfect world you can focus on what to do with your measurement data instead of on getting it.

Other services & solutions
Mechatronic product development
At Octinion we believe in long-term customer relations. We want to be your help line for all the technological problems you encounter in the field of mechatronic product development ... Do you have an idea for a new product, but you lack the technological knowledge? That is where we come in!
Data analysis & algorithm development
Get the most out of your data! A process model, sensor fusion or a control algorithm? Octinion has a full service offering to assist you in all your development needs, be it as a consultant, component supplier or development partner.
Measurement campaigns are often essential in R&D-projects to gain insight in the project or machinery. Setting up a good measurement campaign takes quite some knowledge, experience and/or equipment. If you don’t have these available in your company, our services will help you save time and gain quality. We support from concept to execution, including instrumentation and rental.
