Software

expTrack

This is a time and project tracking web application which can generate various reports for NEES requirements.

RDV

RDV is a tool to view synchronized, streaming data from a Data Turbine or RBNB server. Because of the nature of RBNB, all data is displayed in a time synchronized fashion. The data viewer is capable of playing back time series data from real-time or archived sources.

Data Utilities

This is a set of utility programs to perform various tasks relating to acquiring and managing data.

Scramnet DAQ

SCRAMNet DAQ is a system designed to read data off of the SCRAMNet shared memory network by Systran. It then can record and stream this data for archival and real-time viewing purposes.

Java Simulation Coordinator

This software was developed as part of the Fast MOST development project. The goal of this project was to improve upon the original MOST experiment by significantly speeding up the network communication time of the experiment and expand the number of sites and hardware involved in the test. The Java Simulation Coordinator was a product of this project and it replaced the original Simulation Coordinator used in the original MOST experiment.

NTCP Scramnet Control Plugin

This software interfaces local control systems with NTCP. NTCP stands for NEESgrid Teleoperations Control Protocol and is used to perform remote control of physical experiments or simulations. Many local control systems are linked via a high speed optical network, called SCRAMNet. This interface provides control of all our actuators and shake tables in one integrated location. When doing a distributed test using the NTCP protocol, these local control systems must receive the control commands from the Internet over the SCRAMNet network. The NTCP SCRAMNet Control Plugin performs this job.

DAQ Server Daemon

The DAQ Server Daemon is a generic software interface and implementation for windows that uses the NEES Data Streaming Protocol to connect data acquisition devices from real time data streaming.

Synchronizer

This is a Simulink (xPC Target) program to pick up a MTS trigger signal off the SCRAMNet and then output the trigger via DIO lines as TTL signals, to various DAQ devices. It also outputs a TTL clock, to DAQ devices, based off the 1024 Hz MTS SCRAMNet interrupt at location 94.
