Abstract: To meet the need of a transmitter of domestic iFTEM type time-domain fixed-wing airborne electromagnetic survey system, we design a control system based on PC104 bus for iFTEM system. This system consists of a driving signal generator, synchronization control system, protection control system, voltage, current monitoring and transmitter waveform monitoring. In the design, we use WinDriver to develop a driver for the PC104 driving signal generator and design a practical control panel for the control system by using LabVIEW. The control system has advantages of small size, high reliability and being easy to operate. Experiments shows that our system is stable and reliable, achieves controlling over the transmitter of iFTEM system, and holds its reference value in research of domestic time-domain fixed-wing airborne electromagnetic method.


Keywords: Time-domain fixed-wing airborne electromagnetic survey system, Transmitter, Control system, PC104, WinDriver, LabVIEW.
