(English) A Profibus-based Control System for Nuclear Physics Applications

In this paper we present the results of implementation of a remote control system based on ProFiBus technologies used for the remote control of experimental nuclear physics apparata. Remote control makes experiment handling more flexible, eliminating any problems originating from the need for direct access to the systems being controlled. In the paper we describe two different applications. The first application of the ProFiBus is the remote control of a multidetector (made up of a bidimensional array of CsI scintillators) used to detect light nuclear particles, as protons and/or light ions. In the second application, we present an implementation of the control of a vacuum system suitable for a special chamber used for the development and testing of particle detectors operating in vacuum conditions.

The 6th World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics SCI 2002, July 2002, Orlando, Florida.


The main purpose of the Journal is to collaborate in the systemization of knowledge and experience generated in the areas of Systemics, Cybernetics (communication and control) and Informatics. This systemization process necessarily implies a progressive increase and enlargement of the relatedness among the associated areas, as well as among their respective disciplines. So, improvement in interdisciplinary communication would provide a very good support for the sought systemization process. This is one of the main objectives of the Journal.

Cristian Randieri

Cristian Randieri is a brilliant intelligent and great proactivity person and an effective communicator and visionary. He has built a strong (and deserved) reputation as someone with vision, diligence and honour. Cristian is not a simple engineer but he is a real Scientist. His knowledge is not restricted to the area it covers, but its impressive passion for all the technical topics led him to acquire great skills even in areas far from his original studies. Cristian is able to address and solve complex technical problems with excellent results. He is a valuable writer with great scientific background formed with more than 15 years of active research on experimental Nuclear Physics performed in the most famous international research laboratories such as CERN, ESRF, INF. He write about HI-Tech solutions topics and advanced research study applied to industry. With more than 150 scientific & technical publications, he is also, a technical and famous writer in Italy due to his interviews released to the most famous Industrial Italian magazines. Actually, he is the President & CEO of Intellisystem Technologies an Italian Research & Developments company committed to develop and sell innovative and advanced solutions.
