Make Better Products with Useful and Trustworthy Measurement Systems

Productive engineering with high-quality automated measurement systems for design and development.


Does Your New Product Work?

I love working with inventors and innovators. It never ceases to amaze me to see the creative ideas engineers and scientists come up with to improve our world.

I help these innovators by creating custom measurement software that allows them to capture the physical world and bring it into a computer for capture, analysis or automation.

The software we develop provides feedback and hard data to accelerate your R&D through measurement and exploration.

Taking you from concept to delivery.

Does Your New Idea Work?

Engineers and Scientists are continuously creating new concepts or improving old ones.

How do you sort the good from the bad?

How long does that take?

How do you prove that it works?

We get frustrated when good ideas go to waste.

So we help you realise your idea effectively and rapidly with software-based measurement systems for prototyping and V&V.

I Can Help You...

Prove Your Concept

How will you take your idea from concept to reality? I can help develop prototypes of new products that measure the physical world to provide your customers with the information they need.

Verify Your Designs

Inspecting Data

Do your design engineers understand how your product performs in the real world? Do you need to prove the performance to customers or investors?

What I Do For You

I reduce uncertainty and meet pressing or unusual measurement needs for development and design engineering. 

My approach is to use clever and smart integrated approaches with off the shelf hardware to produce high fidelity and high-quality solutions. When something fails, you need to trust it is the design you are testing and not the measurement system. 

Solution-Focused: I build projects around outcomes, not specifications. This approach means that once the project is underway, we focus on your goals; This gives us agility and you don't have to renegotiate for every minor change.

Rapid: I am fast and accurate. To get you where you are going faster, we combine rapid development platforms, best in class hardware and smart engineers.

Great Design, Simple Systems: I love simplicity. 30 screens of configuration that requires a week's training to use? Daisy chaining four converters from different manufacturers to get your measurement? No thanks. My best days are when I can remove things and still meet your goals, leaving you with a system you can understand, so you have less training, maintenance and downtime.

Who Am I?

Wiresmith Technology is a boutique software design and development company that specialises in developing custom measurement systems on off-the-shelf measurement hardware.

I want to help you improve our world by bringing new innovations and efficiency improvements to market. I have done this in diverse engineering fields including mechanical engineering, automotive, energy and scientific instrumentation.

Wiresmith Technology is a National Instruments Alliance Partner meaning National Instruments have recognised us for our knowledge of their technologies and our ability to deliver projects based on them.

I am James McNally, an expert in applying National Instruments technologies to these problems. I am a Certified LabVIEW Architect, Certified LabVIEW Embedded Developer and a LabVIEW Champion.

Wiresmith Technology provided an easy working relationship with good feedback on ideas and prompt turnaround times on development. They tracked the work backlog effectively allowing the correct items to be prioritised without losing sight of additional ideas and features.

The complete hardware and software packages offered by NI in conjunction with Wiresmith Technology has increased test efficiency and accuracy. It has also given Lontra the ability to further develop and optimise data analysis simulation techniques for future product design.

We needed to bring our durability test equipment up to date but were concerned about meeting all of the existing and new requirements.

Wiresmith Technology was able to produce a new application with a user interface that is easy to use which means our operators are quicker to set up the tests. James was friendly and willing to discuss all of the options with us to find the best way forward. We would happily recommend them for future work.

We deliberately looked for a small but technically very strong company who we knew would be able to work flexibly with us.

The close and personal relationship was important as it allowed us the agility that a larger company would never have been able to match. Also we loved the can-do attitude. Within 30 seconds of the first call, we knew Wiresmith were exactly what we needed

Communication was a concern when we hired a consultant on our FPGA project however Wiresmith Technology were extremely responsive and supportive. They quickly and fully understood our needs and were flexible when problems arose, finding ways or solutions to get the job done. The deliverable were completed on time which allowed us to demonstrate our technology concept. Even after this James provided technical support until we were happy with the system. We would absolutely recommend them as a reliable, flexible and friendly partner.

National Grid Power Quality Monitoring

Initially, I wasn’t sure if Wiresmith would be able to combine the many disciplines required to deliver our complex integrated system, but after a short time of working with James on our project, the breadth and depth of multi-disciplinary skill that Wiresmith brought to it became apparent. We were also pleased that additional expertise could be brought in as required.

James was very professional in handling our requirements and was always on hand when we needed him. An agile method of developing software was adopted. This suited our needs as we were defining our specification as we explored options for building our system. It enabled us to work quickly and to improve our system incrementally. We would recommend Wiresmith Technology’s services as they have delivered what we required to a high quality of workmanship
