Hi George,


What you are looking for is the pmacMessageBroker class. There is a single instance of this class that does all the communications with the brick on 3 poll loops of varying rates. It stores all the responses in a hash table and then makes callbacks to all of the objects that have registered an interest.


The pmacController(s) and pmacCSControllers use 'addReadVariable' to request that the message broker monitors a pmac variable on one of its poll loops. They also use 'registerForUpdates' to request that it calls their callback functions after each poll.


Regards,

giles.

Hi Davis,

Nice work on slits!

Your moving status is working because on your fork version of pmac repository the status parser doesn't pass through any if condition (https://github.com/jgnrendra3/pmac/blob/dls-master/pmacApp/src/pmacCSController.cpp line 404).

Take a look on most recent version, same file on same line, there is an if condition that, on my case, never pass and never refresh DMOV. So my fix suggestion is exactly here.

Giles,

Thanks for replying and for consider my suggestion on pull request. Feel free to make any comments to improve the module development.

Unfortunately I don't have one turbo pmac to help you to discover why this bug have never affected it...

By the way, now I would like to discover who is calling callback function and where type value is set to 2 in order to better understanding the code. I would like to use gdb to do that.

Regards
George

Hi Giles and George,

Based on everyone's helpful input, I was able to get a really basic coordination motion config working yesterday, which consists of:

On the IOC:
    - 2 motor records for the actual drivers
    - 2 motor records for the CS axes (center and gap for a slit) ON the Power Brick:
    - A CS definition providing the mapping between the CS axes and the motors
    - A motion program to process new settings for the center and gap axes
    - A PLC program to update the readbacks for the center and gap axes

There are still a number of details I need to work on (like how to keep the motor amplifiers disabled most the time but still enable them just before the IOC sends the command to execute the motion program), but so far the moving status values in all the motor records are doing what they should.

Mark

It results that the code inside this if (which get the coordinate system status) is never executed. As consequence, EPICS can not get CS status and DMOV never come back to stopped state.
