The Real-time Feedback Data Acquisition (RTFB/DAQ) system represents software framework and tools that enable fast data collection for controls, statistics and diagnostics associated with the state-of-the-art embedded controllers utilized by the APS Upgrade multi-bend achromat accelerator (MBA).

Description

The Real-time Feedback Data Acquisition (RTFB/DAQ) system represents software framework and tools that enable fast data collection for controls, statistics and diagnostics associated with the state-of-the-art embedded controllers utilized by the APS Upgrade multi-bend achromat accelerator (MBA).  The DAQ software interfaces with several technical subsystems to provide time-correlated and synchronously sampled data that can be used for commissioning, troubleshooting, performance monitoring and early fault detection.  The key features of the system include capability to acquire data from multiple subsystems at various sample rates, support for continuous data acquisition, and ability to route the data to any number of applications. Future work will focus on extending the system functionality to provide access to BPM turn-by-turn data, as well as to enable power supply monitoring
