net*TIMS - Hands-on Telecommunications via LAN/Internet
- Students control real TIMS hardware from their PC and obtain immediate PC-scope display of the real signals
- Remote control of hardware via GUI
- Flexible experiment patching
- Fault insertion capability for student debugging
- 24/7 access to real TIMS hardware experiments via browser/client
- Real-time logging of student experiment progress and access
- Flexible, fast experiment authoring using TutorTIMS simulation package
net*TIMS allows professors to set-up real TIMS telecommunications experiments in their own laboratory, which students can then access and control from within the lab and at a distance, to carry out the experiments.
net*TIMS-enabled modules have switches and potentiometers which are remotely controlled via Ethernet. The net*TIMSenabled modules are plugged into a standard Emona TIMS-301 System Unit and are patched to the net*TIMS Server, which is connected to the LAN/Internet via an Ethernet port.
The GUI at the user PC mimics the experiment front panels and displays acquired real signals, using a digital 2 channel oscilloscope from 8 different points in the experiment for each channel. 4 trigger points are also available.
All waveforms can be viewed in both the time and frequency domain.
SIMPLE BROWSER LOG-ON
A user logs on to the net*TIMS Server using their web browser.
They receive a JAVA-based client screen, as shown to the right, corresponding to the particular experiment set up on the net*TIMS System.
The student can simultaneously access other course material provided by the professor and also transfer actual experimental results between the net*TIMS screen and other applications to create Lab reports.
The user can switch, insert or by-pass hardware modules in the experiment, as set-up by the professor, for multi-stage experiments.
The net*TIMS Server manages a multiuser environment, allowing several students, each at a different location, to be logged onto the same net*TIMS Server and independently carrying out their own session of the same experiment.
The net*TIMS Server provides gatekeeping access and a log of all student activities. The professor can manage the net*TIMS Server from a password protected administration page via their browser.
NEW ! : Remote Project module, build your own circuits
This module enables the user to implement the netTIMS switch and potentiometer remote controls to their own circuits. A variety of switches and pots are included on this module which can be wired into the users custom circuits. The circuits can be implemented on a solderless breadboard, or on the prototyping area of the module.
The netTIMS client front panel includes the controls for the remote devices as well as 3 input/output terminal pairs for connecting this module to other netTIMS modules in the rack.
A simple example of some circuits is documented in the attached links. As well, a working example of this module with circuits is currently online at the LIVE netTIMS server accessible from this website.
