Electromagnetic survey equipment is widely used in the geophysical field, such as mineral exploration and underground oil detection. To meet the demand of high processing speed and flexible maneuverability, this paper proposes a wireless transient electromagnetic system combined virtual instrument and Wi-Fi technology. Transient electromagnetic receiver and transmitter, Wi-Fi communication links and human operation terminal comprise the whole acquisition system. With the implementation of software programmed by using LabVIEW, the system can process in real-time. This system replaces the old dedicated hardware with compact and flexible device with the same functionality and superior performance.
