Morning: Tango tools
- Mirjam Lindberg (MAX IV)
I/We will present what has been done and what will be done in the two most famous device servers.
At SOLARIS, we mainly use Taurus GUIs to control equipment and check it's statuses. We started to use web applications that replace system dependent GUIs.
Lightning talk about planned integration SOLAR pumping unit with SOLARIS TANGO controls system using Vue.js web GUI.
PID controllers are typical devices for process variable regulation which are consolidated in the controls theory field and have a broad area of applications. In MAX IV, it was developed a simple straightforward implementation of a single-input single-output PID controller tango device to allow a direct control of common systems. One of the most important aspects of employing PID controllers,...
Short update of migration to Python 3 in SOLARIS.
Goals, encountered problems and taken approach.
Introduction: This device server that provides access to the Gig-E cameras manufactured by Allied Vision and is a tool for acquiring images and setting the features.
Method: The first thing to do was to gradually document myself and then use the Vimba Viewer software to operate and test the camera. After that, I created a Python script that allows to adjust the settings we are...
Short presentation about Solaris aproach to gather and process information about machine, such as fails , their duration, mean time between failures etc.
Sardana is a software suite built on top of Tango for Supervision, Control and
Data Acquisition in scientific installations. Initially developed at ALBA, it
is now used in several institutions inside the Tango Community.
A brief introduction of the project, together with the current status and
latest developments is presented in this contribution.
PUMA is a distributed framework to allow event based communication between multiple fault tolerant and load balanced services and web or native clients.
The communication protocol is based on HTTP and data is exchanged in the JSON format. NGINX offers load balancing and scalability while a supervisor orchestrates recovery operations in case one or more services fail.
On the client side, web...
Tango Controls is a fantastic framework which allows its users to program almost everything that one would expect from a serious distributed monitor and control system. This comes at a price though. The price is Tango Controls' complexity behind the scenes and shows especially when one wants to set it up for development on one's laptop.
In this lightning talk I will demonstrate the Tango...
"dsconfig" is a command line tool which can configure a Tango system "from scratch", or make changes to an existing one. It's based on a JSON file format which is easy to generate. One feature is that the user can check what changes will be made before applying them, so that accidental overwrites or other mistakes can be prevented.
In 2021; ELI-Beamlines introduced a new database called archiver-cache; and exposed it to a Grafana-instance accessible from our office networks; later on adding further data sources (Zabbix, Building Management System,..) and integrating with our operations chat/SMS gateway/..
It's an incredibly popular and enabling tool; exposing over 20k attributes to any operators/scientist/engineers, but...
