Beamline Status of the Vacuum Components

The Display Navigator

DESY Photon Science has an extended vacuum system with 43 beamlines which supply experiments with synchrotron radiation. All vacuum components of these beamlines are controlled by a local interlock system. This microprocessor based system was developed 20 years ago and is still very successful in operation.

To implement the recording of input and output data a SEDAC based diagnostic system was installed. The system supplies this Web page with data of the vacuum displays of the beamlines.

Clicking on "Display Navigator" opens a dialog to select machines and beamlines.

Selecting a beamline from the popup menus will open a window displaying the status of the vacuum components.

Clicking a facility button shows an overview of the corresponing beamshutters and the current status of the V0-valves.

The displayed update time gives the last time, the beamline data were updated. If the datafile has not been renewed within the last two minutes, the text color becomes red when opening or refreshing a display. The beamline data are updated with a period of 30 seconds.

Please move the mouse over the LEDs to display more information.

Refresh the display by clicking the button Reload.
