Project Description

The system that controls and monitors the DCS data come from the electronics of Muon Drift Chambers, decided to be called in short "ELTX". This system is responsible for the collection of all data gothered in MDM machines concerning the values of the read out electronics.

In detail the values monitored are

  • Temperature of Mezzanine cards
  • Analog Voltage of Mezzanine cards
  • Digital Voltage of Mezzanine cards
  • other 10 values come from CSM card (e.g. temperature, 2.5V reference voltage)

Furthermore, ELTX DCS ,like all Detector Control Systems integrated in ATLAS, responsible system of monitoring the operational parameters and the overall state of the detector, the alarm generation and handling, the connection of hardware values to databases and the provision to the shifter/user of easy interactive interfaces in order to drive the detector.

Connection to DBs

There is one configuration database that the system is taking information from, and one condition database the system is writing values to. The configuration databases are used mainly for some static or semi-static information that the project needs to take into consideration and the condition database is used for writing the values of mezzanine temperatures and voltages.
