Command Files for Activation Overview

  • start_up.cmd

    • Executed whenever JAP is loaded

  • cfg_xxxx.cmd (configuration file)

    • Executed on request

    • configuration dependent command list (e.g. ESTEC AA)

    • One of out of the present configuration command files is executed by the startup command file (defined individually on every JMDC)

  • rst_xxxx.cmd (file to restore JMDC to DAQ)

    • Execute on request to set JAP to DAQ operation after JAP needed to be reloaded during DAQ

AMS SW Review, KSC


Current start_up.cmd

  • Optionally change high rate data output rate

    • default JAP settings are kept (HRDL: 9Mbit/s; RS422: 1.92 MHz)

  • Start CQ-List task

  • Enable additional CHD data pages

    • Task status added for debugging

  • Executes a configuration command file

AMS SW Review, KSC


cfg_xxxx.cmd

execution sets

1) Node Address Table

cfg_xxxx.cmd

2) CQ-List Items (disabled)

3) Table of Dallas temperature sensors and actions for monitoring task

4) Activation/Deactivation (powerstep) command lists

Configuration is packed into one file

AMS SW Review, KSC


1) Node Address Table

  • Sets AMSWire paths

  • Sets CAN bus addresses and bus

  • Assigns primary and secondary alias addresses

  • Minor changes (to tested table) are done by separate commands

AMS SW Review, KSC


2) CQ-List Items

  • Items are added with primary node address, in this way the real path is defined by node address table

  • Current items monitor

    • Slow Control: JPD, M-Crate, CCEB, PDS, TTCE, UG, GPS*, ASTE*

    • DAQ nodes: JLV1, T, E, R, S, U

    • Items during DAQ operation: T, E (dyn. pedestals)

AMS SW Review, KSC


3) DTS Table

  • Includes all sensors connected to busses on JPD, M-crate, CCEB, PDS (on USCM), UG

  • Sets warning and alarm limits for every sensor (counted in CHD data)

  • Sets command to be executed, when alarm limit is reached (may be configuration dependent)

AMS SW Review, KSC


4) Powerstep Command Lists Overview

powerstep 0: no switching of power, but enables monitoring of hardware powered when 120V to PDS is applied; executed by JAP on power on

powerstep 1: ends in STANDBY condition; powers on slow control hardware and enables monitoring

powerstep 2: powers on detectors except tracker; high voltage stays off and monitoring is enabled

powerstep 3: powers on tracker and start tracker thermal interlock task and enables monitoring

powerstep 4: ramping of high voltages for detectors

powerstep 5: ends in OPERATIONAL condition; sets and starts DAQ

powerstep 6: stops DAQ and prepares repeated execution of powersteps

powerstep 7: ends in STANDBY condition; powers off detectors and leaves slow control hardware on

AMS SW Review, KSC


Powerstep 0 Summary

  • Reset all node address table errors

  • Boot PDS USCM, enable qlist item, start PDS task

  • TTCE List: power TTPD, enable qlist item

  • UG List: power UGPD, boot USCM, secondary USCM off, configure UG, start UG task, enable qlist items

  • Enable heaters according to STANDBY condition

  • Read PDS status

AMS SW Review, KSC


Powerstep 2 Summary

  • ToF list: power on SPDs, enable qlist items, enable nodes in DAQ wishlist

  • TRD list: power on UPDs, load configuration files, enable qlist items, secondary JINFs off, enable nodes in DAQ wishlist

  • RICH list: power on ERPDs, load configuration files, enable qlist items, secondary JINFs off, enable nodes in DAQ wishlist

  • ECAL list: (power on ERPDs), load configuration files, enable qlist items, secondary JINFs off, enable nodes in DAQ wishlist

Prepared Configuration Command Files

Files updated March 3rd, 2011 to match new JAP

AMS SW Review, KSC


Availability of Current Command Files

  • Local on pcposk0:/pocchome/jmdc/Startup_FM/

  • Web on http://ams.cern.ch/AMS/DAQ/ams02_cmds/

  • Directory summary

    /: startup files, configuration files, restore DAQ files

    /QLIST: command lists for every node, item numbers assigned in qlist.txt

    /NODES: node tables

    /GTSN: sensor tables

    /POWERSTEPS: powerstep command lists

  • Remarks:

    • filenames in these locations are extended for better description of contents… but for clearness can be changed to 8-byte name as in JMDC

    • All command parameters are available as readable textfiles now

    • Currently programs by X.Cai are used to make binaries

AMS SW Review, KSC


Activation/Deactivation Example (Procedure)

  • All steps follow checklists maintained by M.Capell with more intermediate checks and actions

    AMS powered on PDS side A and JAP is loaded on JMDC-1

  • Execute cfg_BB00.cmd

  • Execute powerstep 0 and 1 (AMS is in STANDBY)

  • Execute powerstep 2, 3 and 4 (monitoring and detectors are on)

  • Execute powerstep 5 (DAQ operation)

    JAP gets reloaded

  • Execute rst_BB00.cmd (DAQ operation)

    After some time…

  • Execute powerstep 7 (AMS in STANDBY)

    Power off AMS

AMS SW Review, KSC


List of Other Command Files

  • cceb_on: powers CCEB on and enables reading of CCBT

  • cceb_off: powers CCEB off and disables cq-list item

  • tas(t): TAS run command file (to be erased?)

  • tof_scan: File with 12 different ToF HV settings in preparation

  • ugx_vcls:TRD gas operation

    Additional files need to be prepared/verified for tomorrow?

AMS SW Review, KSC


Plans

  • Currently command lists of powersteps and qlist items are based on individual input from subdetector groups, which should be reviewed and matched

  • Develop (GUI) editor program to allow reliable modification of files (to be tested on FS)
