National instruments extends its role in electric vehicle testing with the acquisition of Kratzer Automation’s test systems business

National Instruments (NI) has agreed to purchase the test systems business of Kratzer Automation, a European provider of vehicle electrification systems, expanding NI’s investment in the high growth area of vehicle electrification.

By providing EV testing software and fully integrated test systems, NI will help enable customers to achieve the scale at which the EV market is growing, driven by consumer demand, global regulations, and the push for sustainable transport. NI tests all critical components of electric vehicles including battery, inverter and engine control. The combined strength of NI’s flexible EV Hardware and software test platform with Kratzer Automation’s application-specific EV software and integration capabilities will provide systems that will enable faster responses to changing test needs, accelerating time to market and lowering total cost of test for a broader range of customers.

“The addition of the products, service capability and experienced team from Kratzer Automation AG will help strengthen our ability to provide complete customer-centric products directly to automotive OEMs and further expand our market in the fast-growing area of electrification,” said Drita Roggenbuck, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Transportation at NI.
