Akamina's Data Acquisition System


The Akamina Data Acquisition System is a high speed data acquisition system designed for use in hydrodynamic model studies. The system consists of the ADQ-1000, a networked server that acquires data and WaveGen-Studio, a user interface client. The ADQ-1000 includes acquisition hardware, power supply and interface connectors in a rack-mountable chassis. A fully loaded system supports 32 analogue input channels and two CAN Bus interfaces, each of which can support up to 30 AWP-300 wave height gauges. The analogue input channels are configured for differential input with 16-bit analogue-to-digital converters for optimal measurements. The system samples all input channels at 1000 samples per second



WaveGen-Studio provides the user with a graphical interface to the ADQ-1000. It is designed to run on Windows compatible PCs. The client allows the user to select channels for acquisition, start and stop acquisition, calibrate sensors and export acquired data in convenient csv format. Advanced features such as a strip chart recording allow the user to view raw data in real time.

We will be at Coastlab16 (www.coastlab2016.html) in Ottawa in May 2016; please drop by for a visit and view our products.


WaveGen-Studio and the ADQ-1000 provide a complete solution for your data acquisition needs. Akamina's system uses a network of connected servers for control capabilities and the acquisition of data which is controlled by WaveGen-Studio. For more information please read more at WaveGen-Studio and ADQ-1000 .


Akamina acquired an exclusive license to GEDAP - Generalized Experiment control and Data Acquisition Package - developed by the National Research Council Canada. GEDAP is a well-proven, complete software solution for physical modelling in hydrodynamic laboratories. GEDAP brings wave synthesis and wave data analysis with sophisticated plotting capabilities to the Akamina data acquisition and control offering.



The AWP-24-3-E Capacitance Wave Height Gauge is outfitted with an external Push-Button with Status LED and Power LED mounted on the outside of the box to support configuration of the gauge without opening the enclosure. For more information please visit AWP-24-3 Wave Height Gauge.


After extensive evaluation, IH Cantabria, one of the premier environmental hydraulics institutes in Europe, has chosen the AWP-24 Wave Height Gauge from Akamina Technologies for their hydraulics research laboratories.


The AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge, with a CAN Bus digital interfaceis now available. This Wave Height Gauge is ideally suited for wave height measurements and integration with active wave absorption systems. It provides the same reliable, highly linear and accurate measurements of wave heights and water levels as the AWP-24 Series. For more information please visit AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge.


Akamina completes the design and the successful installation of 56-segment wave generator control system upgrade. The upgrade included custom control hardware and software as well as data acquisition hardware and software. This work was done for EDF - Laboratoire National d'Hydraulique et Environnement (EDF-LNHE) in Chatou, France.
