Commissioning sequence

Standalone test

  1. Connect the network cable.
  2. Connect DB25 connector with external sensors
  3. Connect 24V power (after connecting other ports above)

Open a terminal and check if the communication is good with TIM board. You can ping either the name of the board or IP which are mentioned in the table above.

ping FASER-TIM-02.CERN.CH. // or 

ping 128.141.189.247   // if you get the following output means that you communicate with TIM successfully.

PING 128.141.189.247 (128.141.189.247) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 128.141.189.229: icmp_seq=1 ttl=58 time=0.444 ms

if you have a Windows PC install the software "Modbus Poll". f you have an OSX install "Modbus Client" or "Modbus Probe". Note that, the PC must be in the same network segment as the TIM motherboard. The Modbus Poll setting parameters can be found in TIMTestList After having proper settings on Modbus poll you can read the temperature and humidity values on the Modbus display. Modbus Poll uses a multiple document interface. That means several windows can be opened. Each one with different data contents from different slave devices at the same time. But for our case, we only open one window to monitor the data contents(temperature & humidity). The MODBUS interface window and related channels on TIM as shown in the below figures.

The coloured boxes, circles and hexagonal shapes in the MODBUS window monitor the SCTs temperatures, frame temperatures of SCT and Humidity values with respect to the connectors on TIM board, respectively.

Blue box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector1 on TIM
Maroon box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector2 on TIM
Yellow box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector3 on TIM
Purple box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector4 on TIM
Green box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector5 on TIM
Orange box & circle & hexagon Temperature of SCTs & frame temperature & humidity connector6 on TIM

Only on the 6th. connector (orange ) temperature sensors are connected onTIM board and so you can only see the temperature values (24C) on 6th. (orange) box as well as the orange circle (24C) in the Modbus window. There is no humidity sensors are connected so the values are all "0".

  • Note that If the humidity sensors are not connected the values monitored as "0".

Full setup test via FSM
