  The TINE* control system evolved in great part to meet the needs of controlling a large accelerator the size of HERA, where not only the size of the machine was a determining criterion, but also the seamless integration of different platforms and programming languages of the many applications developers. In keeping pace with new technologies and the new generation of accelerators such as PETRA3, FLASH, PITZ and associated pre-accelerators and beamlines, TINE has undergone a major “face-lift” in its most recent version, 4.0.1, where platforms such as Java and LabView are not only supported, but emphasized. In addition, TINE Release 4 integrates the video subsystem, the device layer, and central services to a much greater extent than its predecessor. We report here on many of the new features and how they are currently being used in operations.

  We describe the control system operation for the new injector project built at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati INFN (SPARC). The injector started the operation in the autumn of the 2007 and the control systems has been full operating since the start of commissioning and integrate all tools to help the machine operation. The SPARC control system must follow all evolution in the continuous machine installation and evolution. To allow us a rapid develop in the control system we have made some choice in its development: Labview as developing system due to its diffusion in the laboratory and it become standard in the acquisition software; Gigabit Ethernet as interconnection bus this choice give the sufficient bandwidth in the data exchange; PC as front-end CPU and operator console this kind of machine give the sufficient computing power. We develop all control application for magnetic elements, vacuum equipment, RF cavity, all diagnostics, laser and some experimental apparatus have been developed and debugged on line. We developed an automatic process to store all the element information in two ways periodic and on data change.

MOZ02 The Concept of EMBL Beamline Control at Petra III controls, synchrotron, feedback, brilliance 22

  The EMBL is located at the DESY site in Hamburg and operates 7 beam lines at the DORIS III synchrotron. Currently the EMBL Hamburg constructs three new beam lines at the new PETRA III synchrotron. In the past the level of beam line automation is significantly increased. Control system tasks are changed to more data through put, faster reaction times and require more flexibility. The control electronic has to allow fast feedbacks and precise data synchronization. Sample changer offer higher speed and sample capacity. The transport of videos and the huge amount of experimental data via the control system requires networks with large bandwidth and high efficient control system transport protocols. The EMBL has chosen TINE as beam line control system. TINE features like the multi cast option and the efficient TINE transport protocol help to minimize the network load. The control electronic will be the real time PLC control EtherCat for motor control and data acquisition. Fast data acquisition will be performed with FPGA and PXI electronic. Presented will be the beam line control concept, the control electronic layout and the first finished applications.

TUX04 j5 Logbook - A Commercial e-logbook controls, synchrotron, beam-transport, synchrotron-radiation 52

  j5's EventStream module provides an interface for exchanging data with services such as Tango and OPC. j5 models this data as a series of events. Each combines information on the source of the data, its reliability, when it was generated and whether it represents an alarm condition, with the actual data from the external device. Adding a new type of data source requires only the implementing of the very modest data device API. For Tango, the implementation built on PyTango while for OPC Windows COM was used. Data devices support both pulling values and subscription to event channels. Once in j5, events may flow through event pipes, being transformed and triggering actions such as the addition of logbook entries. In other cases, j5 may pull events from the data server, e.g. to populate data fields automatically when new log entries are created. A key feature enabled by EventStream is the ability to attach graphs of 1D and 2D arrays directly to logbook entries as they are added. This combines the event processing capabilities of j5 with its document attachment and thumbnail generation to make the information present in such arrays immediately available to logbook users.

TUZ01 New TINE Java General Purpose Diagnostic Applications controls, monitoring, diagnostics, feedback 67

  One of the strengths of the TINE* control system is the ability to easily make ‘rich-client’ applications containing that programming and display logic which is designed to expedite and enhance the operator’s or physicist’s abilities to diagnose problems and correlate results. In particular there are a large number of ‘rich-client’, general purpose applications which offer extensive interactions with the TINE standard servers and subsystems. This includes the TINE archive system, alarm system, post-mortem system, and video system, as well as scope trace analysis, multi-channel analysis and general configuration management. Available now for many years, these diagnostic applications have recently been realized as pure java applications using ACOP** beans. All applications have been honed and refined based on extensive feedback from the application users. We offer here a description of these applications, some of the novel techniques used and focus on those ‘rich-client’ aspects which cannot be achieved by configuring ‘simple-clients’ based on displayer widgets.

TUZ04 First Experiences with jddd for PETRA Vacuum Controls controls 74
  • E. Sombrowski, K. Rehlich
    DESY, Hamburg
  The commissioning of the rebuilt PETRA and the to be built XFEL accelerators at DESY, requires the creation of numerous new control panels. For a quick any easy creation of these panels the Java Doocs Data Display jddd [1] has been developed. jddd is a Java editor for designing and running control panels. It provides a rich set of ready-made components/widgets,e.g. status indicators, logic components to animate graphics and powerful plot components including online data analysis functionality. The panels are saved in an XML file format and kept in a centrally hosted subversion repository to allow proper bookkeeping and history tracking. Currently the PETRA vacuum controls are used as a real live test for jddd. This way the innovative concepts are being evaluated and the data access of multiple control systems, currently DOOCS, TINE and TANGO, can be optimized.
