RWS Directional Waverider - 23

Description

Driver to decode vertical and horizontal wave displacements and inclination from a directional waverider.

The horizontal displacement is also calculated as a vector.

Decoding Notes

The vertical and horizontal displacement are converted to meters, the inclination is converted to degrees.

If one of the error codes is encountered the value will be the error code (i.e. 9990).
If there is no error code the quality indicator is set to '1', if there is an error code it will be set to '-1'.

The horizontal displacement vector is calculated from the two directional horizontal displacements and the values are meters for the length and degrees for the direction.
If one of the directional horizontal displacements have an error code the value of the vector values becomes 9990.

Database Setup

When adding observations to the systems the following slot numbers should be used:

Slot numbers 1 – 5 are based on the data string, slot number 6 and 7 are calculated internally.
