The data acquisition and interlock system for Tore Supra infrared imaging
The data acquisition for the infrared measurement system on Tore-Supra is a key element in ensuring the supervision of the new actively cooled plasma facing components of the CIEL project. It will allow us to follow the thermal evolution of components of Tore-Supra, in particular the toroidal pumped limiter (LPT) (360° - 15 m long) and the five additional heating launchers. When fully installed, the infrared measurement system will be composed of 12 digital 16-bit infrared cameras. They cover a 100-1200 °C temperature range and each picture has a definition of 320×240 pixels with a 20 ms time resolution. The objectives of the data acquisition system is real-time recording and analysis of each view element for further post-pulse analysis in order to understand the physics phenomenon and ensure the supervision of the plasma facing components and also to be part of the global feedback control system of Tore Supra.
