EMC Monitoring Main Window

    Dictionary (What the hell does that mean ??!!)
  1. EMB: Environment Monitoring Board.
  2. GMB: General Monitoring Board.
    Properly configured they are used to monitor temperatures (TMB) , Low Voltages (LVMB).
  3. RMB: RadFet Monitoring Board.  Similar to the GMB it is used in the EMC to read  the  radiation monitors (RadFet).
  4. IOB: Input Output Board.
  5. LV PS : Low Voltage Power Supply .
  6. Fluor: Fluorinert Chiller cooling the crystal diodes and the electronics.
  7. Water: The barrel calorimeter electronics is cooled by a water chiller in addition to the fluorinert chiller .
  8. TEMPS: stands for crystal temperatures.
  9. TRB LV: Transmission Boards Low Voltage.
  10. NSOURCE: Neutron Source used for calibration ( activation of the Fluorinert coolant ).
  11. DIODE PS: Photodiodes Bias Voltage.
  12. EC: EndCap.
  13. BF: Barrel Forward.
  14. BB: Barrel Backward.
  15. t.b.i  ( to be implemented ).
    General Organization of the Epics Monitoring Screen.
  1.  Each button on the screen pops up another DISPLAY screen.  
  1. The screen is divided in 4 colums corresponding to the 4 independant CAN bus used read the GMBs.

  2. 1)  CAN0  /  BARREL BACKWARD (left column) is reading the  Barrel Backward EMBs, Low Voltage Power Supplies parameters, Barrel  Crystal Temperatures and Barrel RadFets.
    2)  CAN1  /  BARREL FORWARD  (2nd column starting from the left)  is reading  Barrel Forward EMBs,  Low Volatge Power Supplies parameters and the Neutron Source parameters ( t.b.i.).
    3)  CAN2  /  END CAP ( 3rd column starting from the left)  is reading EndCap EMBs,  Low Volatge Power Supplies Parameters, RadFets and temperatures.
    4)  CAN3 / GENERAL ( last column). Thhis one for the moment has only one radFet under it's supervision. It will soon read the Chiller parameters and Light pulser parameters.

    What is critical ?
    The only safety critical Item is the EMC cooling. The SIAM interlock systems takes care of
    the survey of any Chiller problem which would induce overheating in the electronics.
    • SIAM in normal operation the SIAM button is green. If it turns red there is a hardware problem on the cooling system. push the button and determine which sensor gave an alarm. The guidance on each SIAM epics screen will help you resolve the problem.
