REF TEK Strong Motion Command Control (SMCC)
REF TEK Strong Motion Command / Control (SMCC) is an interface for command-line remote station(s) command / control using standard WEB browsers. SMCC is used to edit and program the acquisition of the 130 (either single or multiple units) via the LAN / WAN connection.
SMCC can connect to remote stations either directly using TCP / IP communication over port 5000 or through RTPD using RTPD connection over the REF TEK port 2543.
Once connection is established through RTPD, the SMCC application can discover all remote stations in the network. After stations are discovered, the end-user can communicate with the remote 130 Recorder by clicking the Status / Control button of the chosen station unit ID. The Status screen information includes acquisition status, number of recorded events, RAM and disk usage, GPS status, main and backup battery voltage, time, temperature, network parameters, etc.
In addition to the State-of-Health information and recording parameters, the SMCC Status screen displays sensor information and hardware installed inside the 130 Recorder including: internal boards, their serial numbers, firmware code, etc. Network Parameters the 130 DAS network settings and method to change internal DAS network settings. RTP Status provides the information to the end-user regarding the connection status from the remote station to the RTPD server via Ethernet or Serial PPP connection.
The Modem Parameters section available at the bottom of the Status screen allows the end-user to define the command strings sent to a modem (internal or external).
Another important feature of SMCC is remote setting or changing recording parameters based on the seismic situation at the remote site. After discovering a DAS, the end-user can work with a DAS configuration by selecting the Parameters button for that DAS. The end-user can receive parameters from the Command Line 130 DAS and edit the DAS parameters. A single Parameter setting screen allows the end-user to set or change station, channel and trigger parameters in a simple and friendly screen without toggling or switching to other screens. Relay and Alert parameters can also be setup on this screen. The end-user can then send parameters to the Command Line 130 DAS.
Use the Sensor Test and Senser Level Parameters section to do sensor tests and display results.
The Relay Parameters on the status screen define how the relays are used. The Alert settings define events that will cause the DAS to callout
