110740     RSX-11M Datalogging System for Acurex Netpac  Version: V3,
May 1984
Submitted by: Walter E. Wahnsiedler, Aluminum Company of America,
Alcoa Center, PA
Operating System: RSX-11M V4.0  Source Language: FORTRAN 77  Memory
Required: 55KB  Hardware Required: Acurex Netpac remote digitizing
system and two (or more) general RS232 ports are required.  Keywords:
Engineering Applications, MINC/RT-11 Software
Abstract: This submission interfaces with the Acurex Netpac remote
data collection system. It is an expansion of the
"Minc-11 Data Acquisition Package for RSX-11", DECUS
Program No. 11-590 and the principals of operation and
commands supported are identical with DECUS No. 11-590.
The only differences visible to the user involve
additional data collection parameters which are
necessary to utilize the capabilities of the Netpac.
These are Engineering units, Module numbers, Temperature
units and Reset rate (the rate at which recalibration
and block temperature readings are performed). The
Minimum change parameter has been expanded into an
array, one entry for each channel, since the raw
voltages observed on each channel are no longer
available to the computer and the scaled values are
possibly in different systems of units. Some of the code
in this submission may be useful for users of the 11-590
program, since the programs have been generalized to
handle an arbitrary number of channels.
Notes: For persons not familiar with DECUS No. 11-590, check
the catalog for a description of the package's
Restrictions: Multiple data collection tasks cannot share the same
Netpac I/O port.
