The HV-ADAPTOS is a multi-channel High-Voltage (HV) bipolar power supply system especially developed to control, monitor and safely operate bimorph mirrors.
The system is composed by a standard 19" - 4U crate containing a CPU board, integrated cooling, power supply sources and the HV boards.
Up to 6 independent HV boards, each one housing 8 channels rated at ± 2kV @ ± 0.5mA can be installed into the system crate.
Every HV board has dedicated internal protections that limits differential voltage between adjacent channel outputs to 500V. This behavior is required in order to protect the mirror from damages and it allows safe operation of the overall optical system.
Each HV board also has an OVP (Over Voltage Protection) output and an OVP input connector in order to daisy-chain the differential protection i.e. 500V between channels of different boards.
Other hardware-dedicated protections e.g. passive emergency output discharging are implemented for the specific application.
Internal Web Server application dedicated to bimorph mirror control and operation.
The HV-ADAPTOS system includes an internal web server software dedicated to bimorph mirror control and monitoring and allows to simultaneously control more than one mirror with a single system. The 8-channel boards can also be collected into different groups, each one associated with 8, 16, 24 or 32 number of electrodes.
Embedded EPICS IOC for easiness of integration into the beamline control system.
Three different levels of users privileges (power user, user and generic) with different features and accessibility to configuring-setting reading are implemented. The possibility to dynamically assign individual HV channels to super-electrodes within the same group is also provided.
Communication to the HV-ADAPTOS system is guaranteed by means of a 10/100/1000 Ethernet interface over standard TCP-IP protocol.
EPICS drivers are integrated into the system crate and easily allows interfacing to the control system.
The system also includes proprietary creep and hysteresis control and minimization routines.
The HV channels connected to the same mirror move in a coordinated manner in order not to make OVP trip during setpoint changes.
External interlocks - e.g. vacuum - both passive and dry-contact are available.
