|THAPP04||EPICS Tools for Small Experiment Based on PLC||1549|
IRFU* software control team is involved from feasibility studies to equipment deployment into many different experiments by their size and running time. For many years, IRFU is using PLC solution for controlling part of the experiment, and two different SCADA: - MUSCADE, in-house SCADA dedicated to small experiments. - EPICS** for big facilities. With MUSCADE, IRFU has developed a set of tools that gives an easy and a fast way for PLC developers to configure the SCADA. As EPICS projects are growing in our department, we are working now on adapting those tools to EPICS: - PLCParser, which generates an EPICS database for PLC communication (S7PLC, Modbus). - CAFEJava (Channel Access For EPICS Java) API, which runs a simulated EPICS IOC to test EPICS synoptic, and provides EPICS process variables access for any Java application. - Dxf2Opi, which converts Autocad DXF files into OPI files for CSS*** software. - MOONARCH (Memory Optimizer ON ARCHiver Appliance), which reduces EPICS Archiver Appliance**** data files storage.
