Following the 1 MW pilot plant unveiling on October 28, National Instruments were noted to have become partners with Andrea Rossi, where the former were collaborating with Rossi by supplying all electronics for his plants. No further news had been released by either of the parties involved until recently the founder of E-Cat home and plants praised National Instruments for their tremendous work, where they don’t just do what they are told to do and supply what they agree to supply, but rather it, according to Rossi, feels more like symbiosis, where they iron sharpens iron.
The statement of the E-Cat home founder concerning NI was a response to the question addressed at the Journal of Nuclear Physics blog of his on December 23rd: “Is the National Instruments good enterprise for you and how many jobs [do they] make for you?” Rossi was definitely not shy at showering praise: “National Instruments is the best Partner a manufacturer of plants of high technology can have… We are honored to be supplied by them…” It’s obvious he is very happy with the way things are going between him and his partner for electronics for his E-Cat plants (not quite sure if National Instruments is also going to be supplying electronic parts for E-Cat home units, though).
More so evidently it is indeed an iron sharpening iron experience – where both each other to be better professionals at what they do. In the same statement Rossi said that National Instruments “do not just sell you good fish, but also teach you how to fish.” That’s powerful, because as the result of this relationship both entities will come out stronger, better and more professional, which in fact makes all the difference.
