The control system is a combination of hardware controllers for the rack frames, and a desktop client software application.
Once APPolo is installed, the software automatically discovers all connected LYNX hardware and configures itself to display a full hierarchy of the connected racks and modules. Clicking on a device brings up its dedicated GUI display. The graphical representation of the modules shows internal connections and signal flow in the form of an easy to read block diagram. This greatly simplifies the understanding of a module’s function and shows the signal flow from input to output.
