DCS Project general information

-- Contact person: muhammad.gul@cernNOSPAMPLEASE.ch

-- Software and hardware (Windows-10 machine, WinCCOA 3.16, jcop-framework 8.4.0, Oracle DB with schema 8.14)

-- DCS project is running on the machine (with fixed IP) installed in the clean room. From outside, it can be accessed via teamviewer

-- Currently it controls two mainframes, one inside the clean room and one in the GEM lab. Two separate DCS systems are made for each of the mainframe

-- A dedicated Oracle data base has been created at CERN and the DCS is able to read/write to it

Running the DCS project

-- A mainpanel shown below is always running on the system (check the taskbar if minimized). If you don't see it in running state, check instructions below how to run it

figure #1

-- Check the OPC server connection, if not running, then follow the instructions in below topic

-- Check the two mainframes connections. If the status is Ko, check physically the frames or internet connection

-- The four buttons can be used to open sub-panels

Open the mainpanel if it's not running

-- To run the mainpanel, click on the gedi in the taskbar (1, 2) and then run by pressing the run button in #3

-- If you don't see gedi in the taskbar, ask the expert

figure #2

Run the OPC server

-- If the OPC server is not running, run it by following the step #1, 2 as shown in the following figure

figure #3

High voltage control system

-- On mainpanel (figure#1), there are four buttons, FSM Tree, Data Archive, Clean Room HV Control, GEM lab HV Control

-- FSM Tree button opens the FSM tree of the project where the users controls each channel independently

-- Data Archive is only for experts

-- Clean Room HV Control, GEM lab HV Control button open sub-panels which will be used by users for HV operation

-- Clicking on "Clean Room HV Control", the following panel will appear

-- A number sequence is already given in the figure for it's usage

  • In #1, select the desire channels by check-in the box
  • Set the values of voltage, current, trip time, ramping Up/Dn and max voltage in the text box (#2) and press the corresponding button (#3)
  • ON the selected channels (#4)
  • To monitor the vMon, iMon and R=vMon/iMon values in the table, press "Monitoring" button (#5)
  • To draw the parameters on the plot, select the channels by clicking on their names in the table (#6) and click vMon, iMon and R button (#7)
  • On the right side, three plots will be seen where the user can play using the trending buttons
  • iMon average values can be calculated from the visible plot. First select the visible plot from the plot window using mouse and then click the button iMon avg (#8)
  • The values will be appeared in the log window
  • The full code can be see in the iMon_avg.txt attachment
  • "OFF Selected Button" can be used to OFF the selected channels
  • The panel can be closed by using the top right corner cross sign or the close button in the bottom middle
  • For GEM lab, a similar panel has been designed
