Subject: Added threshold channels in autolocker and fastmon rms monitor 

I was finding myself changing thresholds every time I change power levels. Also, the fastmon rms monitors were not working with the docker-compose. I'm listing all script and medm changes since the sad departure of awade:

  • rmsMonitor.py is standalone now and does not depent on gaincycle.py.
  • rmsMonitor writes rms values in a channel and reads thresold value from a channel. There is also a switch to disable gain cycle functionality.
  • In FSS slow controls, I made channels for showing light power in mW (after calibration) and a channel that calculates mode matching. These values are of course not very accurate but will give us an idea.
  • I made thresholds into channels in the autolocker script. Autlocker script also had a logical bug with dealing with required states. I have fixed that now.
  • I have added threshold channels for PMC autolocker as well. Now, the threshold value can be changed by medm screens directly.
  • There is a new functionality in autlocker called tracking. When engaged, the autolocker top and bottom rails follow the changes due to slow pid so that a rough position of resonance is always in memory.

I'm attaching screenshots of modified medm screens.
