We are excited to announce that the Wave Maker is now available for the Emriver Em2, Em3, and Em4 models. It has been specifically designed to study coastal geomorphology in our models and can simulate an array of processes, including longshore drift, sediment delivery from river mouths, and, with our color coded media, particle sorting by these processes.
A large stepper motor drives an oscillating paddle on a shaft. The wave maker is driven by a microprocessor-based, open source system made for precise control. Users can adjust wave stroke speed, stroke length, and pause between strokes. The controller also tallies run time and wave count. The Wave Maker is designed for ease of use and very long maintenance-free life.
