DMC developed and enabled a LabVIEW-based data acquisition and logging system with WiFi-based DAQ hardware from National Instruments. The hardware selected for each DAQ station was WLS-9205 Data Acquisition modules using WLS 9163 carriers. Each DAQ station collects and broadcasts structural health data on the data acquisition network, which is received, displayed and logged at the LabVIEW application.
The solution is also scalable – the Client had an immediate need for short term field testing, which was achieved with a laptop-based DAQ system. Longer term, the system can easily be scaled up to a semi-permanent real-time monitoring and logging system capable of collecting continuous and event-based data over long periods of time.
