I am using the MSCB SCS2000 to monitor slow control variables (temperatures, voltages, etc). I am trying to
get it set up at fermilab as a test stand in the MC1 building and was wondering if anyone has integrated
Midas with a MSCB SCS2000 before. We have two systems at fermilab, one system that is currently running
in the g-2 experimental hall, but running an out of date version of midas. The second test stand I am
setting up is working with the current version of midas. I believe we will easily be able to figure out the
external probes for temperatures and voltages just fine. But the MSCB SCS2000 box itself has 1
temperature value, 1 current value, and 5 voltages internally that we also need to monitor. If I use the msc
command I can read back the external values through the daughter cards I have installed on the SCS2000
box but has no way of reading back the internal values that I need. I also have been looking through the
MIDAS files trying to find a possible way to read these out to no avail.
If anyone has any ideas or has had previous work with the SCS2000 and knows how to read back the
internal values please let me know.
