Meeting Minutes

6 July 2004

In attendance: J. Nelson (notetaker), R. Chestnut, R. Hall, J. Rock


SLED FDBK through SCP slow feedback

     Ed made a version w/o act to des; Janice hopes to test this soon.


paoutdata mat files compatible with matlab 7?

     (still true) No news just yet.  Bob is looking into it.  Matlab 7 coming end of summer. 


MacNair module support of aes

(wait for Debbie) Janice reported that last week she and Debbie tested the macnairs with signals in both tr06 and the test closet.  Debbie’s now working on an acquire button and the rms code.


(still true) RMS/BIG requirements for 8-packs structures: one of these loops for tr06.  If we put macnairs in tr09, there will be another one there.


Will need to be able to archive the gain and set the gain (internal to module). (need to test with signals) – either convert gain from enum to int for archiving or save signals in volts using the gain to convert


2-pack PLC coming in August-ish. 

Specification avalanche has occurred.  See: 2 pack section

Estimated installation of mod + klys in August, RF in early September


NLCTA/8-pack summary display

(RC/JN) Stn2 gradients get stuck when the power goes to zero.  Also, need to check rates/24hr and save/restore of trip:buff.


AFG driver code is done

(still true) Ron has the AFG and the initial sw setup for testing.  Waiting for Debbie.


Matlab/epics 8-pack SLED feedback

Acquires are all OKOK, Janice checked.

Have a plan for switching from labview to matlab calculated deltas to try when RF comes back.


HamHands for NLCTA

Janice sent out a spec for 6 SISes in TR00, 2 for each of stations 1 & 2.  Need acquires for these two triplets plus one for MacNair modules.  Once acquires are in, will want relevant processing loops to hit acquire buttons.

(Janice) Reset trips, elog signals/status, more SISes


Vacuum- Janice made a test database for getting appropriate vacuum summaries for Matlab to use.  Judy’s gonna check it.  Then Janice will make display changes.


CMLOG clogging

(still true)James says he’s gonna think about it.  TR00 is the only one having these problems now and it seems to be independent of reboots.


TR08 CPU maxing out

(still true) Ron suspects low priority callback routine.  Proc Loop is what’s using this.  We could try getting rid of some of the Pave/min/max calcs for uncritical powers.


Future plans?

(still not done) Janice will ask when Orion is coming …


SCP button to call pre-configed archive browser

Bob & Ron MacKenzie will look into it – making a scp button that passes a config name to a script that starts the archive browser with that config.


Auto-elogging of archived data

What does it take to have automated elogging every 24hr of a given config?


Reboot IOCs with new directory structure

TR07 and TR09 have migrated.  TR08 soon.  TR00/01 not far behind.


Archive Browser Chooser

Janice has a gutted list of 8pack PVs to archive and will regenerate the Chooser List cuz her notes are indecipherable.
