Automation of data collection allows more shots, faster progress
Productivity boost! Reprinted from the LPPX November 23, 2011 Report.
Changes to our data collection software have allowed us to reduce the time we take between shots, thus speeding our research progress. Until this month, it took several minutes to download the data from all 24 channels on our six oscilloscopes. This significantly extended the time it took us to prepare to fire the next shot. Thanks to work by our IT contractor, Ivana Karamitsos, our software was revised to reduce the data collection time to under a minute. With more shots per day, we’ll make faster progress. Coming soon—faster data analysis, too!
