OT Finite State Machine (FSM)

Overview


The OT operator can get access to the OT ECS by starting the Device Editor and Navigator (DEN) on the OT ECS control node. The DEN offers three ways to access the device units: the HARDWARE VIEW, the LOGICAL VIEW, and the FSM.

Under normal circumstances, the OT Operator is concerned with the OT FSM. The FSM top panel is shown in the figure below; the colors indicate the status of the control nodes.
The OT FSM adopts the usual OT hierarchical structure based on the geographical subdivision of the OT system in Stations, Layers, Quadrants, etc. The two detector halves, "A" (Q13) and "C" (Q02), are treated as independent partitions.
