The beamline tab contains applications to monitor the beamline and experiment status. The beamline tab navigation toolbar provides access to the beamline video cameras, data collection status and data collection log.
This page is used to select a beamline. The functionality is identical to that of the Beamline drop down menu in the navigation toolbar.
The Video link in the beamline navigation toolbar opens a page displaying almost real-time video streams of the sample and beamline equipment. Two pan-tilt-zoom cameras inside the beamline hutch, the hutch camera and the robot camera, provide views of experimental hardware. A pan-tilt-zoom camera outside the hutch, the control panel camera provides views of the instrument console and electronics systems.
Each video feed can be displayed separately by clicking on the corresponding camera link in the navigation toolbar. This can be useful when Web-Ice is accessed through a slow Internet connection. The refresh rate for the video can also be adjusted in the Preferences Tab.
For a list and description of available camera preset positions consult the Blu-Ice documentation.
The Status link in the navigation toolbar directs to a page displaying the data collection status, experimental parameters and a thumbnail of the last image collected. The image can be inspected in detail by following the link under the image. This opens the image in the Image Viewer Tab.
The status window also indicates whether an experiment is initiated from Blu-Ice or Web-Ice; in the last case, the user is allowed to interrupt data collection from the page
The experiment log page is displayed by clicking the Log link in the navigation toolbar. This log is the same one displayed in the Blu-Ice log tab.
Clicking on the Download button at the top of the log will open a separate browser window containing only the log, which can then be saved as a file in the user's disk area. The New Log button clears the contents of the log.
