WDM experimental setup at GSI HHT

Data

acquisition

and

control

system,

for

HEDP

experiments

on

FAIR

and

GSI,

consists

of

a

set

of

hardware

software

modules

(HSMs),

each

of

which

includes

one

measuring,

diagnostic,

or

actuating

device

and

the

relevant

program

for

acquisition

or

processing

of

experimental

data
.

The

HSM

programs

reside

in

several

personal

computers

integrated

into

a

local

Ethernet

network
.

Data

communication

between

the

HSM

programs

has

been

organized

via

the

TCP/IP

socket

interface
.

Software Modules (HSM) for prototype of system for GSI HHT experiments

Connecting of devices using TekVISA

/pyVISA

The

universal

TekVISA/pyVISA

driver

has

been

selected

to

organize

data

communication

between

the

programs

and

devices

with

unlike

interfaces

(RS
232
,

GPIB,

USB,

and

LAN)
.

Using

this

driver,

it

is

possible

to

organize

data

communication

with

the

HSM

programs

with

allowance

for

the

specific

command

system

of

the

device
.

The

ActiveX

component

of

the

TekVISA

driver

is

set

up

for

access

to

the

functions

of

the

TekVISA

program

in

the

C,

Delphi,

Java

language
.

Main advantages


Scalability

of

system
.

The

modular

structure

of

system

allows

to

add

new

elements

easily


Possibility

to

spend

processing

of

experimental

data

in

a

mode

of

real

time


Carrying

out

of

completely

automated

experiment

with

the

description

of

the

plan

of

experiment


All

initial

and

processed

experimental

data

saving

on

the

server


Use

of

various

programming

languages

for

a

writing

of

programs

HSM

of

modules

allows

to

reduce

time

of

introduction

of

new

elements

of

system


The

system

is

constructed

on

the

basis

of

the

traditional

measuring

equipment

(oscillographs,

CCD

camera


)


User

friendly

WEB

interface


Use

possibility

in

additional
