Temperature Controller Setup InstructionsStarting with the device at factory default settings (Omega iSeries only):
To add the device to EPICS:
- The device only support 10 Mbit/sec so use an ethernet port that is set to either auto-negotiate or 10/half.
- The node name is assigned by the beamline controls group and added to the firewall so that TCP port 2000 is open to the beldar and connie linux servers.
- Using a PC on the same subnet, enter at the DOS command prompt:
route add 192.168.1.200 <your PC IP address>
- If the device pings, use telnet to set up the network configuration and number of TCP clients:
telnet 192.168.1.200 2002
Enter default admin password listed in manual
s -IP<device IP address>
To exit telnet, type control-] and quit.
- Configuration can also be done using the device web page. Enter http://192.168.1.200 for the URL and follow instructions in the manual.
- Configure the device so that it displays in degrees C and with one number after the decimal point. Also, all controller input sensors are RTD with European Calibration Curve and 4 wires connection. Configure it as 100 ohm RTD 385.4.
- Add the device to the $EPICS_APP/EtherIoc/prod/etherIocApp/Db/tempControlAll.substitutions file.
- Add the device IP address to the soft-ioctemp IOC startup file and restart the IOC.
- Omega iSeries only - During startup initialization, the IOC automatically configures the device so that it displays in degrees C and with one number after the decimal point. Any further configuration can be done using the general purpose (Debug) EPICS stringout record.
- Omega iSeries only - Every 10 minutes or so (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter), the device does not reply to an IOC request and appears to just drop the request on the floor. The IOC stream device support logs a message in $IOC_DATA/soft-ioctemp/screenlog.0 when this happens. A glitch trap in the IOC database is added to prevent "flicker" of PV status.
- Omega iSeries only - Since the device is configured as one-client servers, once soft-ioctemp is up and the TCP connection is made, no other TCP client is allowed. The device web page is still accessible but has limited functionality. Access control is allowed, however, and the device can be power-cycled from the web (the IOC automatically reconnects after a power cycle). When attempting forbidden actions from the web page while the IOC is up, the device will sometimes stop responding to IOC requests for up to 60 seconds.
- Add the "Temp" record to Alarm Handler configuration files and restart ALH. Add lines so that notification of any MINOR or MAJOR alarm is emailed to the list of users in the BL_TC_USERS environment variable defined in the alh startup script.
- Add the "Temp" record (readback at 10 sec) and the "TempSetptRdbk" record (setpoint) to history using the PV database web interface. The IOC uses "TempSetptRdbk" to calculate alarm limits on "Temp" so it must be restored on IOC restart in case the device is down at the time of the restart.

Rohde-Schwarz Vector Signal Generator (SG) Primitive PV Interface
- Connect to the SG:
- Set SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.CNCT to "Connect" or "1".
- Wait a generous second for the connection to happen before writing any more PVs.
- Once connected, there is no need to set CNCT again until the box is power-cycled, ioc reboot, network cable disconnect/reconnect, or any other network glitch.
- Write to the SG without a response back:
- Set SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.TMOD to "Write" or "1".
- Set SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.AOUT to the desired command WITH the newline "\n". 80 chars max.
- Query the SG:
- Set SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.TMOD to "Write/Read" or "0".
- Set SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.AOUT to the query string WITH the newline "\n". 80 chars max.
- Wait a little while for the query and response to happen.
- Get SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.TINP and parse out the response (check for the newline "\n" at the end). 80 chars max.
- If TINP is not what you expect, check for errors:
- Get SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.CNCT - it should still be "Connect".
- Get SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.ENBL - it should be "Enable" or "1".
- Get SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.STAT and SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.SEVR. They should be 0 and 0.
- Get SPEAR:SPR-SG1AsynControl.ERRS - it will provide a string message of the problem.
APC Switch Setup InstructionsStarting with the device at factory default settings (8-port Model APC AP7900):
- Connect the RS232 serial port of the ACSW to a computer using the cable that comes with the APC switch.
- The pinout for the serial connection is in http://www.slac.stanford.edu/grp/ssrl/spear/epics/slaconly/enetdevice/ap7900pinout.txt.
- Use SecureCRT or other serial communications software to communicate with the device. Setup the COM port for 9600 bps, no HW flow control, 8 data bits, No Parity, 1 Stop bit.
- Power on the APC switch. When connection is established, enter default username and password listed in the manual for both User Name and Password.
- From the Control Console menu, choose 2- Network.
- From the Network menu, choose 1- TCP/IP.
- From the TCP/IP menu, choose 1- System IP and enter IP address assigned for the device (Example: 188.8.131.52).
- Choose 2- Subnet Mask and enter the subnet mask (Prod: 255.255.255.0, Dev: 255.255.252.0).
- Choose 3- Default Gateway and enter the gateway address (Prod: 172.22.247.1, Dev: 184.108.40.206).
- Choose 4- Boot Mode and set it to Manual. We will not use DHCP to boot ACSW in development or production but instead use static IP addresses.
- Choose 5- Advanced and then choose 1- Host Name. Enter the node name entered in DNS by the SSRL network group and added to the firewall so that TCP port 23 is open to the beldar and connie linux servers.
- Naming convention for AC switch node names is <location>-acsw<number> (Example: b118-acsw1).
- Choose 2- Domain Name and enter slac.stanford.edu.
- For 3- Port Speed, leave it at Auto-negotiation.
- Choose 4- Accept Changes. Success is displayed if everything was saved correctly.
- Enter ESC twice to go back to the Network menu. Choose 2- DNS and enter 220.127.116.11 for primary and 18.104.22.168 for secondary DNS Server IPs.
- Leave 3-Reverse DNS Lookup as Disabled. Choose 4- Accept Changes and ensure Success is displayed.
- This is all the network configuration that is needed.
- Enter ESC twice to go back to the 3- System menu. Choose 1- Administrator. Create Admin user and set a password.
- Create outlet users and passwords. To use the EPICS IOCManager application to control this switch, create a default user account and password with what is encoded in the IOCManager database protocol file acsw_apc.proto.db.
- Time setup via NTP servers or other methods is optional.
- Enter ESC to get to Control Console menu and then choose 4- Logout. The saved configuration will become active during next login.
- Once the network setup is complete, connect the device to appropriate network (Prod: VLAN-466, Dev: SSRL-PUB).
- If everything is setup correctly and the device pings, subsequent connections to the device can happen via telnet over Ethernet.
- To modify or lookup the network configuration in the future, use telnet:
telnet <device IP address> 23
To exit telnet, type control-] and quit.
- Configuration and status monitoring can also be done using the device web page. Enter http:<device IP address> for the URL and follow instructions in the manual. For production, the browser must run on beldar, connie, or an operator workstation.
- IOCManager uses asyn and stream for communicating with this device. Add the device name and MACRO to IOCManagerApp/Db/spear/crat_spear.substitutions file and rebuild.
- In st.cmd add the line:
drvAsynIPPortConfigure("<device node name>", "<device node name>:23",0,0,0)
- Create an EDM panel using $EDM/misc/acsw_apc_8port.edl in the spear path. Note misc is checked out from the LCLS CVS repo.
Beckhoff BK9000 Setup Instructions
For some of the steps below you will need a laptop with Beckhoff software and Beckoff USB cable to connect to BK9000.
- Beckoff KS2000 installation instrutions
- Follow instructions to assign IP Address
- If connection between IOC and BK9000 is established but the BK9000 disconnects the connection when write or read is invoked it might be that security is setup on BK9000. To fix this connect to BK9000 with KS2000 software and do the following:
- Go to ADS routing table and press clean all
- You may need to reboot the coupler after this.
- There are watchdog timers in the Beckhoff. The driver will keep sending echo packets to Beckhoff @2Hz to make one watchdog timer happy to maintain TCP connection. Another watchdog timer will cause write failed then output turns to fail safe mode. To avoid this disable the second watchdog time by doing this:
- Disable write-protection by going to Online / Coupler / Services / Write Protection Abolished.
- Set Table 100, Register 24 to 0 (default 1000 ms) by going to Pos 0 (controller) / Tables / 100 / Offset 24.
- You may need to reboot the coupler after this.
