LLRF9/500 is a newly introduced low-level RF control solution from Dimtel, Inc. During two weeks from October 16th through 25th, the first production unit was commissioned at ELSA in Bonn. During commissioning, all features of the system were tested and verified. These include:
In commissioning, the system was shown to successfully support ELSA injection-ramping-extraction cycle, limited only by available RF power. After the commissioning period, the unit remains at ELSA on a long-term loan. It will be used in routine operation of the accelerator as well as in machine development studies.
