keyword=How to Start Beam Modulation
Beam modulation is now being done automatically. It is necessary
for the data to be valid production data. Check the "dither" screen
of the "happex" panguin configuration, and make sure that the last
supercycle looks reasonable.
HOW to restart Dithering if it isn't working:
1) find or open the "greenmonster" gui, go to the "BMW" tab.
2) Click "Check Status". If dithering is not running, text
in the window will say "Beam Modulation is OFF" and "Beam Modulation
script is INACTIVE". Click "start beam modulation", wait a second,
and click "check status". Beam modulation should now be working.
Go check the panguin dithering screen again.
3) Also: go look at the "Counting House" ROC screen (if you know where this is). Obvious error messages will appear here if the
dithering script is unable to pause feedback ("write denied", or
something like that). page Kent if this happens.
4) If the script should be running (according to greenmonster), but
dithering is not seen, then somethings broken. Page Kent. If you
can't start dithering from Greenmonster (you press "start beam modulation" and "check status" and the script doesn't start) then something is broken, and page Kent (584-5852)
