Device Driver/device support modules and Interfaces

    EPICS DIM interface

    The basic idea of this device support module for EPICS is to provide an interface to the DIM protocol in order to read/write EPICS data seen from the DIM world and to act from EPICS as client/server for services and commands in the DIM regime.

    ... see EPICS DIM interface for further information.

      DABC extension to the EPICS DIM interface

      Based upon the existing EPICS DIM interface several data structures provided by DABC (Data Acquisition Backbone Core) transporting values together with additional attributes, similar to EPICS records, via the transport mechanisms of DIM should be able to be accessed from EPICS via an extension to the above mentioned original interface.

    HADCon(trol) / TRB based controls

    The HADCon(trol) general purpose board provides access to many external interfaces and devices. This section is about interconnecting those with the EPICS technology.
      Temperature measurement HADCon(trol)

      The HADControl general purpose board provides access to many external interfaces and devices.
      The task is to replace the already running ansatz of the HADES MDC Gas Monitor temperature measurement by a pure EPICS based design.

      CANbus implementation on HADCon(trol) and control via access

      The objective of this project is the implementation of a software on the HADCon(trol) board's AVR micro controller. This software enables the control of AVR micro controller's CANbus Interface using an (ASCII based) Application Programming Interface (API). Integrated via streamDevice driver into EPICS the control of CANbus devices will be possible within EPICS.

    PLC Industrial Control devices

    In this section several industrial control devices running PLC or SPS programs are addressed
      SattCon 200, ABB, HADES cryo control

        There is a request of HADES to be able to integrate readings from the control system of their cryo system control into the EPICS control system of HADES Maybe, in a second step, also changing of values is of interest.
        Right now the system runs a PLC on an ABB SattCon 200 system, which can be accessed by a Windows based control PC, via the ABB Automation PC-based programming tool DOX 10.

      Beckhoff Device Access via EPICS ModBus
      - CBM RICH test mirror positioning system
      - Summer Student Project 2011

        As part of the summer student program 2011 at GSI this projects objective is to develop, evaluate an exemplary motor control, on basis of basic existing components which will
        • use Beckhoff devices
        • be accessed via modBus
        • be controlled via EPICS
        • be displayed, e.g. with CSS
        • (offered to be) used for TASCA, CBM, HADES

        UPDATE
        Meanwhile the project became more detailed, since CBM showed interest to have a RICH mirror setup motor controlled. This setup requires to have 2 servo motors with a gear reduction to tilt a gimbal mounted planar mirror element (400 mm × 400 mm) in 2 directions. It is foreseen to use this setup during CBM's next test beam time.
        TASCA
        Until the ordered parts have arrived, we could use spare equipment of TASCA to develop and test. Thank you.
