To study flows in a wave flume of over 30m long, R&D Vision integrated and validated an 8 HD IDS camera recording system operating at over 160i/s.
The cameras are positioned along the flume and are synchronised to manage acquisitions of several hours of raw data (16To of storage; we will need a good server for archiving ☺).
The main issues with this project:
- Ensuring loss free acquisition for the whole 16To
- Having a 20m long cable with high speeds without getting into overly expensive solutions…
After a number of qualification test, we decided on USB 3 optical fibre cables.
HIRIS manages the whole project and the system has been operational since early 2016.
