|<Caution!> PCs at the beamlines should be used for reseach purpose only. When detected any uses for the other purposes, e.g. the connection to
undesirable sites, the network connection will be automatically down for
30 minutes. The beamline control system will malfunctions.
You can start the beamline control software BSS by clicking the BSS icon
on the desktop.
Please note that you cannot start more than two BSS processes at the same
First of all, BSS asks whether the sample changer SPACE will be used or not. Please select the "No" button if you mount samples by hands.
Next, the Question dialog will appear and ask if you want to initialize
the related devices: the rotational axis of the attenuator, rotational
and translational axes of the goniometer, beam stopper, collimator, and
camera length of the current detector.
This is to warn you that if you have already mounted your crystal, initialization
of the goniometer axes will move your crystal out of the stream of cold
gas If no crystal is mounted, press OK for initialization to proceed. If
a crystal is already mounted, press Cancel. Although measurement is possible
without initialization, accuracy of the starting position of goniometer
and other values is not guaranteed. Between measurements, please dismount
the crystal and perform initialization (click Setting, Initialize).
Completing the initialization process, BSS shows ”End station initialization finished.” in the System Message tab of Message Console. Now you can start measurement.
