Subject: Ethernet Illuminator Control 


Configured ethernet controlled power strips to have static IP addresses:, and

Wrote a python script to interact with the power strips that can turn individual sockets on or off via telnet.

This functionality will be implemented on the control room computer GUIs in short order.

 The ethernet power strips have been installed. is on ETMX, is on ETMY and is on the vertex. I have also written an EPICS file "illuminator_control.adl" (currently stored in my named directory) that allows a user to turn individual sockets on and off at each of the three locations. Some short tests have indicated that everything is in working order.

Currently, no illuminators are hooked up to the power strips. However, the power control will most likely be ready for use tomorrow, granted I can find and use extension cords so that the illuminators might reach their respective power strips.
