The status of the LAMPF control system upgrade

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The upgraded Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF) control system is now operational. The SEL-840 computer has been removed, and all application programs are now running on VAXes. We are continuing to upgrade the control system network. We are using MicroVMS systems for distributed local control and have introduced VAXELN systems for dedicated real-time situations. Communications with both systems is based on a standardized remote procedure call interface. We have also begun to integrate the Proton Storage Ring controls with the LAMPF control system, to experiment with VAX/GPX-based workstation operator interfaces, and to investigate possible applications of artificial intelligence technology. ... continued below
