Subject: BI channels on c1auxey 

There is still an open issue with the BI channels not read by EPICS. They can still be read by the Windows machine though.

I looked into the issue that Yehonathan reported with the BI channels. I found the problem was with the .cmd file which sets up the Modbus interfacing of the Acromags to EPICS (/cvs/cds/caltech/target/c1auxey1/ETMYaux.cmd).

The problem is that all the channels on the XT1111 unit are being configured in Modbus as output channels. While it is possible to break up the address space of a single unit, so that some subset of channels are configured as inputs and another as outputs, I think this is likely to lead to mass confusion if the setup ever has to be modified. A simpler solution (and the convention we adopted for previous systems) is just to use separate Acromag units for BI and BO signals.

Accordingly, I updated the wiring plan to include the following changes:

  • The five EnableMon BI channels are moved to a new Acromag XT1111 unit (BIO01), whose channels are configured in Modbus as inputs.
  • One new DB37M connector is added for the 11 spare BI channels on BIO01.
  • The five channels freed up on the existing XT1111 (BIO00) are wired to the existing connector for spare BO channels.

So, one more Acromag XT1111 needs to be added to the c1auxey chassis, with the wiring changes as noted above. I have already updated the .cmd and EPICS database files in /cvs/cds/caltech/target/c1auxey1 to reflect these changes.
