Author Affiliations +
REMIR is the NIR camera of the automatic REM (Rapid Eye Mount) Telescope located at ESO La Silla Observatory - Chile and dedicated to monitor the afterglow of Gamma Ray Burst events. The REMIR camera is composed by a set of sub systems: the array controller, the cooling system, the temperature and the pressure monitors, the filter wheel controller, the dither wedge controller. During 2005, a complete re-writing of the REMIR software control system started in order to optimize the system performances: the new configuration will adopt a client server architecture, where a supervisor system accepts via socket the data acquisition queries from AQUA (the acquisition data suite), manages the several components of the camera and the communication with the telescope control system. Here we describe in particular the philosophy adopted to realize the general control system, the sub systems and the communication protocols.
