    Graphical human interface to a neutral beam system



    A color graphics system has been designed and implemented as the human interface to a 120KV, 60 amp neutral beam source being built at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory for Tokamak Fusion Test Reactors. The system is based upon a 64 × 64 touch panel and allows a number of control and high level analysis displays to be brought up on any of three monitors. Included among the displays are a “Super-oscilloscope” package, a data acquisition timing package, numerical control displays and pictograms. The system succeeds in being very friendly and easy to learn for the operator. All control is via the touch panel and a set of six knobs and two keypads.
