IMR2K

node

/

read

init

start

stop

clear

analyzer()

length(4096)

debug

Purpose

Talk to an MR2000 CAMAC module

Parameters

node

Specifies the CAMAC controller's IP name. Usually this is a CVC running LynxOS and an ESONE server.

station

CAMAC station number of the MR2000.

init

Initializes an MR2000.

start

Starts an MR2000.

stop

Stops an MR2000.

clear

Clears an MR2000.

read

Reads data from an MR2000 into an analyzer. Default name is <node>#<station>, default event type (qualifier) cmi (for historical reasons: CAMAC Memory Increment).

analyzer(string)

Specifies name and optionally the event type (qualifier) of the target analyzer. Valid are: <anlname>.<evtname> and <anlname>

length(len)

Specifies the maximum number of spectrum channels to be transferred.

debug

Debug switch.

Remarks

The MR2000 is versatile CAMAC module capable of storing up to 64k channels of singles data with very little dead time. This command allows to operate it in parallel to normal listmode data taking.

Examples

imr2k cvc35 16 / init
imr2k          / read
imr2k          / clear
imr2k          / analyzer(second.list)

This command sequence initiates an MR2000 module in station 16 of a CAMAC crate controlled by cvc35, then reads accumulated spectrum data into default analyzer cvc35#16.cmi. Then the module is cleared and a second measurement is stored in analyzer second.list.
