lansce controls computer hardware
LANSCE Controls Computer Hardware
  • Moving from Sun Microsystems to “commodity” PCs running Linux (e.g. RHEL)
    • They want to say good-bye to the Vax workstations as well
  • Move Front-End-Processors to VME-CAMAC, VME, and PLC-etherIp
    • Good-bye to the micro-Vax
    • When all of this is done the CA/Vax-gateways will no longer be needed. Pure EPICS is where they are headed.
lansce controls software
LANSCE Controls Software
  • Standardize on java for most of the high-level applications. There will still be TCL/TK apps running around as well.
    • They are very interested in XAL and plan to use it. This is something we pull from CVS before I left.
  • Stay with edd/dm for now. Let’s see what EPICS Office is going to do.
  • Move to Channel Archiver data collection and retrieval software
  • vxWorks 6.X (PowerPC targets)
lansce control room
LANSCE Control Room
  • Currently the control room at LANSCE has Sun workstations driving an inverted-T of LCD panels.
    • Each LCD display is an independent monitor.
    • They operators are asking for Xinerama.
  • LANSCE uses shared Captive accounts.
    • This helps make a consistent and stable environment for the operators
    • The shared accounts are easy to manage.
  • Alarm system
    • Custom alarm software
    • Audible alarms for critical events
