WEX01 The Web2cToolkit: A Framework for Thin Ajaxian Control System Clients 140
  • R. Bacher
    DESY, Hamburg
  The Web2cToolkit is a framework for Web-based control clients. This paper describes the conceptual design, the key features and the implemented tools of the framework, and discusses security related issues. Example applications from the PETRA 3 project at DESY will be presented.

  As part of a joint project CLS, the University of Western Ontario, IBM and BigBangwidth has developed a beamline remote access system that has been demonstrated on the CLS VESPERS and the alft x-ray source facilities. This system utilizes web-browsers as a thin client that can be connected to servers at the CLS over conventional Ethernet or User Configuration Light Paths. The RBA system is based on the concept of a Service Oriented Architecture and provides access control, data acquisition, data storage and based visualization. More recently the system has been modified to permit experimental data to be streamed into third party analysis tools such as Quartz Imaging X-one. This system is now being extended to form the basis for ScienceStudio and integrated experiment management system.

    EMBL, Hamburg
  The EMBL is located at the DESY site in Hamburg and operates 7 beamlines at the DORIS synchrotron. Currently the EMBL Hamburg constructs three new beamlines at the new PETRAIII synchrotron. In the last years the level of beamline automation is significantly increased. In the area of biological beamlines automatic Sample changers were established. We present the control design of the new sample changer offering higher sample capacity, improved sample throughput and flexibility.  
WEP020 The ELETTRA e-Science Platform: A Framework for Remote Operations and e-Science 212
  • M. Pugliese
    ELETTRA, Basovizza, Trieste
  Modern science requires the most advanced Information and Communication technologies. Data generated by detectors and experimental stations have to be acquired, stored, processed, shared and visualized. Starting from the experience with the Elettra Virtual Collaboratory which allows a distributed team of researchers to carry out remote experiments using Elettra beamlines and with the contribution of EU funded research projects (GRIDCC, EUROTeV, DORII) we have developed a platform for E-Science applications. The platform is base on Grid technologies and allows the integration of sensors, instruments and other data sources to the computing and storage resources of the eInfrastructure / cyberInfrastructure and distance collaboration through a web portal called Virtual Control Room. The platform can be used in different contexts and supports the development of both scientific and industrial applications such as on-line processing of experimental data, environmental monitoring, remote operations and supervision of geographically distributed systems.
