TGBT14A_912_78 - Continued bank discrepancy problems
Run Glenn's cal switching driven external to VEGAS test
Start at 11:00am
Edit vegas.conf to up sampler rate to 50ms (20 Hz).
Turn Managers off and on, and switch modes, to ensure samplers are updated.
Managers start crashing, and VEGAS CLEO display dies. Maybe sample rate is too high?
Vegasdm doesn't update any faster, but CLEO VEGAS screen is updating power values ar around 20Hz now.
balance - looks good. Both pols behaving.
Scan 1 - 60 sec test scan. Archivist file has 741 rows, = ~ 12Hz. I guess that is the fastest it can keep up with?
Try setting tint/swper to 0.5 secs, and DCR switching period to be 4 secs
Add DCR to scan coordinator
Scan 2 - 60 sec scan - switching signal master has switched back to VEGAS
Scan 3 aborts due to DCR unexpected sig/ref state... what have I not configured correctly?
VEGAS still thinks it is the switching signal master - does this matter?
Set VEGAS switching signal master to be DCR, but switching source remains "internal" for each Manager
DCR aborts again...
try running this the other way around. Configure for DCR, but include VEGAS into scan later?
try removing VEGAS from scan coordinator
same problem - try a DCR "conform parameters" - same problem.
Configure back to VEGAS in charge...
VEGAS (Bank A) is now controlling noise diode.
CLEO device explorer is now hung up... use "more info" from VEGAS CLEO screen.
I cannot figure this out. Configure for tp_nocal, 0.5 sec integrations, samplers running at ~ 12.5Hz.
Run a 1 min scan with no noise switching, but toggle the noise diodes off and on manually.
Scan 7, noise diode manually toggling
vegasdm was not updating, also rcvr screen diode display did not update...
no sign that anything was happening
try again - don't seem to be able to change noise diode values while scan is running
Give up with this, and set everything back to normal (including vegas.conf)
finish at 12:00
