Abstract. Visual interfaces and wireless monitoring have played significant roles in the application of electromagnetic transmitters. Thus, we have designed wireless monitoring system that is based on the Visual Studio 2015 Windows form application by using C# language and multithreading technology. The system can effectively implement many functions, including time monitoring via a real-time clock, modification of the transmitting frequency, transmitting mode change, and storage and verification of the transmitter status data. What mentioned above make it possible for the wireless monitoring system to support status monitoring and transmitter operation control. The results of several field tests confirm that the proposed wireless monitoring system enables a user-friendly interface, and convenient and stable operation. The system is able to satisfy the wireless monitoring and multifunctionality demands for transmitters implemented in land electromagnetic exploration, and act as a reference for scientific researchers pursuing instrument development and electromagnetic prospecting.

Short summary
High power transmitter is becoming more and more able to meet the needs of electromagnetic exploration. However, high power transmitter needs high voltage support, which causes the risk for researchers potentially. According to the actual situation of field exploration, we designed a wireless monitoring system. The system offers two advantages, the first of which is high security, and the second advantage is simple operation.
