Slow Control System at BM@N experiment
Presented by Dmitry EGOROV
Track: Particle Accelerators and Nuclear Reactors
Big modern physics experiments represent a collaboration of workgroups and require wide variety of different electronic equipment. Besides trigger electronics or Data acquisition system (DAQ), there is a hardware that is not time-critical, and can be run at a low priority. Slow Control Systems are used for setup and monitoring such hardware. Slow Control systems in a typical experiment are often used to setup and/or monitor components such as high voltage and low voltage systems, temperature sensors, pressure gauges, preamlifiers etc. usually from large number of vendors. Slow Control system also has to warn personnel about critical situations and to archive revieved data for further analysis and handling by physicists.
