27-M ANTENNA COMMAND LIST
Command Syntax Arguments Value(s) Units Description Hardware

controlled

FRM-HOME frm-home <ant> <ant> antenna ant14|ant15 Homes the x-axis (receiver select),

and Position angle axis.

Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-RX-SEL frm-rx-sel <rx> <ant> <rx> receiver no. Lo|Hi

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Move x- and z-axes to select receiver.

1: low-frequency receiver,
2 : high-frequency receiver.

Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-SET-PA frm-set-pa <pa> <ant> <pa> position angle -90 to 90 degrees

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Set the position angle for polarization.

Pointing to the south, the angle is 0˚

Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-X-OFFSET frm-x-offset <xoff> <ant> <xoff> x-axis offset mm

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Offset in x relative to the selected receiver.

In effect until a new value is set,
or the Geo Brick is reset.

Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-Z-OFFSET frm-z-offset <zoff> <ant> <zoff> z-axis offset mm

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Offset in z relative to the selected receiver.

In effect until a new value is set,
or the Geo Brick is reset.

Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-ABS-X frm-abs-x <xpos> <ant> <xpos> x-axis position mm

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Set to an absolute x position. Not use Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-ABS-Z frm-abs-z <zpos> <ant> <zpos> z-axis position mm

<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Set to an absolute z position. Not use Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-KILL frm-kill <ant> <ant> antenna ant14|ant15 Kill all motors. They will be unpowered Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
FRM-ENABLE frm-enable <ant> <ant> antenna ant14|ant15 Enable all motors after a kill Geo Brick LV (PMAC)
OUTLET outlet <out> <state> <outlet> outlet no. 1 to 8

<state> new state on|off
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Turns the selected outlet on or off Ethernet power strip
ND-ON nd-on <ant> <ant> antenna ant14|ant15 Turns noise diode on via power strip Ethernet power strip
ND-OFF nd-off <ant> <ant> antenna ant14|ant15 Turns noise diode off via power strip Ethernet power strip
RX-SELECT rx-select <rx> <ant> <rx> receiver no. Lo|Hi
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15
Moves the requested receiver to focus

and sets RF switch appropriately

Geo Brick LV,

Ethernet power strip

LNA-GATE1 lna-gate1 <Ina> <vg1> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<vg1> first gate voltage -2.0 to 2.0 V
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Sets the first gate bias on the selected

amplifier to the requested voltage.
Will only operate if that amplifier is enabled

Beaglebone
LNA-GATE2 lna-gate2 <Ina> <vg1> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<vg1> first gate voltage -2.0 to 2.0 V
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Sets the second gate bias on the selected

amplifier to the requested voltage.
Will only operate if that amplifier is enabled

Beaglebone
LNA-DRAIN lna-drain <lna> <vd> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<vd> drain voltage 0 to 2.0 V
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Sets the drain bias on the selected

amplifier to the requested voltage.
Will only operate if that amplifier is enabled

Beaglebone
LNA-ENABLE lna-bias <lna> <state> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<state> amplifier enabled state on|off
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Turn the requested amplifier on or off Beaglebone


Notes:

  1. The antenna number, <ant>, is required only for the ACC command. The front-end computer should ignore it.
  2. All numbers are floats
  3. The frontend will echo the command (but not the arguments)
  4. Everything is case-insensitive
