Control and monitoring system epics

Control and Monitoring System / EPICS

Pete Owens

Daresbury Laboratory


General philosophy

General Philosophy

  • Control system is based on EPICS.

  • In general, individual groups are to be responsible for interfacing their own equipment to EPICS

  • DL will provide overall infrastructure and support

  • In agreed cases, DL will take responsibility for developing individual EPICS applications eg. Beamline PSUs, Decay Solenoid PSU etc.

  • Naming convention

  • Long-term support. Who will take on operational responsibility for day-to-day management of systems?

Epics tools

EPICS tools

  • Channel Access (CA)

  • Display Manager (EDM)

  • Archiver

  • Alarm handler

  • Backup and restore

  • Strip Chart

  • Etc.

Network

Network

  • Network layout drawn up, circulated to interested parties and agreed.

  • All sockets will be configurable between MICE Control network, Visitor network, RAL office network or telephone

  • Rack and all network equipment purchased and ready for installation

  • To be transferred to RAL on Wednesday

Personnel safety

Personnel Safety

  • PPS hardware and logic has been designed , procured and the racks built and tested.

  • An EPICS interface will be provided for remote monitoring of operation.

  • XML gateway to be added to feed information back to the ISIS control system.

  • Still some issues remaining about the hall search philosophy, siting of search buttons etc.

Beamline psus

Beamline PSUs

  • Racks built up – imminent delivery to RAL

  • 12 Danfysik System 9000 PSUs

  • RS422 serial comms to IOC

  • EPICS database

  • EDM user interface

Decay solenoid psu

Decay Solenoid PSU

  • The power supply has been tested at DL

  • Control electronics have been reverse engineered

  • PLC system was old, complex and difficult to support so has been abandoned in favour of an EPICS IOC

  • Quench detection and heater control electronics have been refurbished and tested

  • New control software scheme has been agreed

  • IOC being built up.

Hydrogen system

Hydrogen System

  • Meetings have been held to discuss control requirements for the H2 system

  • Little progress possible until the decay solenoid system is complete.

Target

Target

  • Sheffield group responsible for providing the control interface to the target drive system

  • DL will provide training, advice if necessary

Pete Owens – Daresbury Laboratory


Tracker

Tracker

  • Imperial to develop their own EPICS software to control the tracker.

  • DL will provide training, advice if necessary

Rf system

RF System

  • Design review planned to be held at DL in the next couple of months.

  • This will include control requirements
