The AWAC AST measures either waves or current profiles, with the former being prioritized. In some scenarios, customers do not wish to skip any current profiles and need to know the maximum average interval.
For a Prolog with wave-processing enabled the equation is:
>> maxAverageInterval=ProfileInterval - 116 - ceil(Nsamp/SampRate)
If wave-processing is disabled substitute 116 with 6 seconds.
For example; Profile interval 600s, Wave interval 3600s, 512 samples at 2Hz. The maximum AI will be 228.
