Winner Concept<br /><ul><li>The flume with wavemaker is activated by a DC motor joint for a chain with a sliding crank crank mechanism to the aluminum piston paddle with variable angled velocity determined by a driver and tachometer. The flume, make of acrylic, mounted on a cast iron structure, has hermetic joints, artificial double beach and ramps for decrease the wave reflection; one bomb for it filling and one valve for it drained for gravity, as well as a resistive sensor to measure the wave height and a filter for keep the water clean. Also have a tank for the stand by of the water. The signals are sent and receive through a PIC and a computer with the program Visual Studio through an RS232 cable.</li>
