ANGARA Technology has created a vibration monitoring system for use in research labs, accelerator complexes and medical physics facilities.
With appropriate accelerometers, it can continually record RMS displacement down to nanometres and generate real-time VC-curves with selectable frequency range.
The default control interface is EPICS, but other options such as TANGO are available, making the system easy to integrate into an existing control infrastructure.
Please contact us for specification options, ordering, and pricing information.
The control interface is created using Control System Studio, which accesses the EPICS process variables (PVs). EPICS is a free and open-source physics and industrial control system. It’s the most used control system in experimental physics, and is continually being developed by a community from different institutes world-wide, so long-term support looks assured.
An EPICS archiver can record all data being produced. Other plots and status information can be easily added, either by the user or on request to ANGARA Technology.
The AT-2501 is a CompactRIO module for distributing electrical and optical trigger signals between cRIO chassis and other instruments. Each output has adjustable delay, pulse-width, polarity and pulse-train generation. The optical connectors are configured as two inputs and two outputs.
