Changes to Dataviewer channels (XARM)
I added a chanel "C1:SUS-ETMX_POS" to Dataviewer.
I followed the instructions from WIKI-40:
modify the file "C1SUS_EX.ini" in /cvs/cds/caltech/chans/daq,
then telnet to fb40m,
then "click the appropriate blue button on the DAQ MEDM screen".
So, I can now read a signal from the channel "C1:SUS-ETMX_POS" in Dataviewer,
and this allows me to measure Q-factors of ETMX this evening (make similar work for what I did on Tuesday for ITMX).
While "clicking the appropriate blue button" on the DAQ MEDM screen,
CODAQ_DETAIL,adl screen, I obviously clicked some blue button that I should not have clicked,
and as a result the signal in Dataviewer from the channel "C1:SUS-ITMX_POS" has disappeared (it is now a straight line).
Description of what has happened and of my wrong actions:
I had two channels opened in Dataviewer simultaneously (both "C1:SUS-ETMX_POS" and "C1:SUS-ITMX_POS"),
and after clicking some blue button on CODAQ_DETAIL,adl screen,
the signal from "C1:SUS-ITMX_POS" became
a straight line,
while signal from "C1:SUS_ETMX_POS" continued to be a random noise.
I was scared that I made worse for the channels and for Dataviewer, and
I started clicking random blue buttons chaotically
hoping that it will restore the signal from "C1:SUS-ITMX_POS". Random clicking on arbitrary blue buttons did not return the signal.
As the channel "C1:SUS-ETMX_POS" works normally, I will be measuring Q-factors of ETMX tonight,
but it is obvious that
someone else (Rana, Robert,Steve?) needs to restore the correct settings for "C1:SUS-ITMX_POS"
Moreover, as I was clicking chaotically all the blue buttons on CODAQ_DETAIL,adl screen,
someone else (Rana, Robert, Steve?) will need to check somehow that I did not destroy signals from some other channels.
I apologize for the negative consequences of my channel adding,
but Rana asked me in the very beginning in September to let others know if I spoil something, so that others would be aware of it and could fix the problem.
Again, I apologize and hope that the problem is not very serious.
