Up: THE PE 3220
Previous: SUMMARY FOR EXPERT
The PE 3220 control computer is located in the CLIP centre directly
beneath the control room. If there has been a power failure, or the
system has hung up irretrievably it is necessary to initialise the
computer. To do this, and to subsequently bring the computer to life,
follow the instructions given below.
In the CLIP centre ...
- Find the consolette on top of the 3220 computer rack
and ensure the 'enable/disable' switch is at 'disable'.
Press the INIT button on the consolette and then
initialize CAMAC crates (see Section 2.5).
In the control room ...
- Go to the control computer system terminal in the control room.
On the screen there should be a list of devices followed by
"Device=". Type C13F. It should respond with:
"File=". Type FX163220.LPO being careful to distinguish between zero and
Wait for the message END OF ENVIRONMENT CONFIGURATION.
- If the reason for the cold restart was the effects of a power
failure, then it is advisable at this stage to follow the
instructions of Section 4.4 on the checking of the CAMAC crates.
- If things are OK, then you may now join the normal start up
procedure at step (3) of Section 4.1 or at step (3) in Section 4.2.
- If the "information display" screen (right most screen in the
control console) is displaying garbage you will need to reset its
controller. This is in the CLIP centre mounted high in the CAMAC
crate. It is a blue box with an on/off switch on the back (facing
you). Switch it off and on again to reset.
