System set-up

As we now at all times will have more than one data acquisition systems running we needed to define a proper set-up to be able to view and operated these systems at the same time. For this we decided to change the monitors to a set of two 24" 1200x1600 pixels monitors in a dual screen configuration with two possible views (either showing the data acquisition system for the primary Cassegrain instrument, or showing FIES and StanCam) between which one can switch easily using a simple combination of keystrokes.

The screens have been installed recently, and we need to see if this system works satisfactory in practise.
