Paper Abstract

PAUCam consists of an array of 18 red-sensitive CCDs of 4K x 2K pixels with a system of 36 narrow-band (10 nm) filters and 6 wide-band filters which will be installed at the William Herschel Telescope (WHT). PAUCam Slow Control (SC) is the working package of PAUCam in charge of implement all system motion control, sensors monitoring, actuators control and first security reaction. It is implemented using a Siemens Simotion D435 Motion Controller which controls all the motors and the connected profibus periphery.
