Information about Instrument Control Programs
- A document describing the design of the
SINQ Instrument Control System (SICS).
- The powder diffractometers DMC and HRPT.
- The four-circle diffractometer TRICS.
- The two circle diffractometer TOPSI.
- The small angle machine SANS.
- The time-of-flight spectrometer FOCUS.
- The triple axis spectrometers
- The reflectometer AMOR
- The triple axis spectromter RITA-2
- Search the SICS documentation.
- The Slides from the SICS Users Meeting 2005.
The instrument control software SICS is accessed through special
client software written in Java. The client programs are available on
all instrument computers. Addionally they can be started from this
very WWW server through the Java Web Start mechanism. More details
about Java WebStart and installation instructions can be found on the
LNS Java WebStart page. If you
are already installed, you may use the following quick links.
In order to run these programs from outside of the PSI network, you
will need a username and password. Moreover, the PSI firewall blocks
SICS's ports and you need to run VPN anyway to do something useful
with these clients or you have to build a ssh secure tunnel.
The status of SINQ instrument can be queried from the WWW. Please follow
this link for selecting instruments to view.
The DMC Virtual Powder Diffractormeter
We provide the virtual powder diffractometer DMC.
This pwder diffcractometer is driven by a McStas simulation.
