Workshop Goals MICE Controls and Monitoring Workshop September 25, 2006 A. Bross
Controls and Monitoring As we all know we will focus on Controls and Monitoring Controls: u Parameters/settings needed for systems operation: Target System, Beam Line, Detectors s Voltage/Current settings s Temperature settings s Pressure s …… s Front-end electronics parameter settings –Time constants –Delay constants –Bias –Trip parameters –…… Monitoring u Readback of the above settings and display – GUI u Interface to Alarm system u Interface to Safety system
DATA DAQ and C&M Systems The separation is some cases is straightforward u Trackers for example Data DAQ – AFEIIt VLSB (in VME) Linux OS via fiber C&M – AFEIIt EPICS (via 1553 interface) D GUI However, in other cases it may not be so clear u For example the RF system is a case in point s The are controls aspects are clear s But the RF accelerating gradient is actually part of the “measurment” –Readout on event by event basis?
MICE DAQ and C/M We have chosen u EPICS s Commercial Front-end hardware u Linux u VME/PC u CAEN V2718 for the VME/PC interface
Workshop Goals For Controls and Monitoring u Define sub-system needs s Hardware and Software u Finalize/review front-end hardware choices u Begin discussion on Alarm system s This is not safety system u Begin to specify connection between MICE safety systems and MICE monitoring u Specify a C&M test stand configuration that multiple groups can use s Debug hardware interfaces s Debug software u Begin discussion on Data Base needs/architecture DAQ u Online computing and storage needs s Develop model u Trigger Scheme Interface between the C&M and the Detector DAQ
