Low-cost input-output devices

The Computer Monitoring Systems Department (Donetsk National Technical University) developed stationary system for environmental and atmospheric monitoring. And Department developed the connection of laboratory instruments to a PC. Most of inexpensive gas analyzers, chromatographs, atmospheric sensors and other measuring equipment are equipped with analog outputs. However, ADCs with computer interfaces are expensive. Therefore, the Department has developed low-cost input-output devices that may be of interest to any organizations operating with monitoring and control.
RS-232 oscilloscope
1 channel, the frequency of digitization - 14.4 kHz. Digitalcity - 8 bits. Measurement range: 0 .. + 5V. The driver is a self-propagating distributive with the NI LabVIEW virtual machine. The software contains the following functions:
1) RS-232 port setup;
2) waveform display;
5) scrolling and increasing graphics;
3) software synchronization;
4) manual software calibration data;
6) save the waveform to a file format *.txt and *.xls.
7) basic mathematical analysis: search for maximum, minimum, average.
Parallel interface Oscilloscope
2 channels, max digitization frequency- 1 MHz. Digitalcity - 8 bits. Measurement range: 0 .. + 5V. The driver is a self-extracting distributiv with the NI Lab-VIEW virtual machine. The software contains the following functions:
1) setting the port address;
2) waveform display;
3) software synchronization;
4) manual software calibration data;
5) scrolling and increasing graphics;
6) save the waveform to a file format *.txt and *.xls.
7) basic mathematical analysis: search for maximum, minimum, average.
Oscilloscope with usb interface
1 channel or 2 channels, max digitization frequency - 57.6 kHz. Digitalcity - 8 bits. Measurement range: 0 .. + 5V. The driver is a self-extracting distribution with the NI LabVIEW virtual machine. The software contains the following functions:

Automation of shooting a physical stationary object

The photo-shooting system for the electronic museum's  materials was automated by Moskalyuk Taras - a student of the Computer Science and Technology Faculty, under the my guidance. Automation is performed using the Lego NXT technology, which significantly approximates the end of work and improves the quality of the footage. The new shooting technology allows to expand the possibilities of creating three-dimensional images, up to 180 images per model, without complicating the process of shooting and processing raw materials. Science article was written .

The thermostat in the boiler room

The complex performs automatic control of the boiler houses network  with the ability to monitor and adjust the algorithm through the global network. Consists from hardware and software parts. Includes a thermostat in the boiler room and a manager. Thermostat in the boiler room Hardware: The controller is a PC / 104 processor board (2xRS232, LPT, IDE, Ethernet, VGA, keyboard, mouse). ROM - IDE M-Systems 256 Mb flash disk. Sensors - case external temperature sensor (-40:+30°С); contact feed sensor (-5:+100°С), contact sensor of return water (-5:+100°С); Cabinet temperature sensor in the room (-5:+10°C). All sensors are built on thermistors. Analog input - self-made device (4 analog inputs 8kHz -> RS232, galvanic isolation). Discrete output - self-made device (Parallel port -> 8 relays); Power supply, housing, a set of connecting wires. Optionally - a CDMA modem with a directional antenna, a radio modem, a GSM modem, a wired telephone modem. Software : Windows NT 4.0

Successful passing the exam for an international certificate LabVIEW CLD

January 15, 2018 In Russia, the second certification test of NI LabVIEW CLD (out of three) was successfully passed . From Ukraine there is only one passed -  (but it is proved that he works in the USA). There are 17 certified spesialists in Russia. I analysed that almost of them works in industrial enterprises, and only three - in research institutes. In this context, a person from a typical technical university - is an extraordinary event. Thanks to my family for moral support.
