Measuring and Analyzing the Effects of Waves in an Experimental Basin Using PXI Express

Figure 1. CCOB Wave Basin

"With the PXI standard, we can acquire and measure distributed data by integrating up to 18 dedicated modules per chassis. This modular concept facilitates software development because the capturing, processing, and analyzing modules are independently designed, but we can perform the execution as a whole, either in sequences or in parallel."

- Álvaro Álvarez Vázquez, Instituto de Hidráulica de Cantabria

The Challenge:
Creating an instrumentation and measurement system to enhance education and research in the laboratories at the Environmental Hydraulics Institute of Cantabria.

The Solution:
Using PXI Express and GPIB products to create a system that integrates different interfaces to acquire, process, and analyze signals; perform automatic calibration; and visualize and analyze results.
