Description

The SST-1M is a 4-m Davies-Cotton atmospheric Cherenkov telescope optimized to provide gamma-ray sensitivity above a few TeV. A prototype has been deployed and is proposed as part of the Small-Size Telescope array for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). The SST-1M control software of all subsystems (active mirror control, drive system, safety system, photo detector plane, Digicam, CCDs) and the whole telescope itself (Master controller) uses the standard software design proposed for all CTA telescopes based on the ALMA Common Software (ACS) developed to control the Atacama Large Millimeter Array. Each subsystem is represented by a separate ACS component, which handles the communication to and the operation of the subsystem. Interfacing with the actual hardware is performed via the OPC-UA communication protocol, supported either natively by dedicated industrial standard servers (PLCs) or separate service applications developed to wrap lower level protocols (e.g. CAN Bus, camera slow control) into OPC-UA. Early operations of separate subsystems were already carried out using the engineering web-GUI, which allows to perform monitoring, parameters adjustment and full control of the telescope. Results will be shown on telescope movement and tracking; Digicam control and data readout; photo detector plane telemetry readout and control; mirrors alignments; CCDs image acquisition; safety system tests.
