Kontron configuration

When changing a WfsCamera head, or using a different WfsCameraElectronicsRack, you need to reconfigure the PcKontron:
  1. Login to the PcKontron pc (the PnCCD cPCI computer):
     ssh pnccd@<IP> 
     pwd:  ARGOS_CCD
    where <IP> is the IP addess of the computer, either SX or DX Kontron board IP (see the ARGOS IP list).
  2. go to ~/src/wfs_camera/
  3. call
     ./ <PnCCDElectronicsTelescopeSide> <CameraHead> 
    . (e.g. ./ SX 2)
  4. Optional: in case you are replacing a PnCCD minicrate electronics (e.g. replacing the SX minicrate by the spare one), you may need to change the Kontron pc IP configuration (the spare one may have the DX IP, where you want it to have SX)
  5. Finally: Reboot the Kontron PC (from the ARGOS wfs_camera controller gui) for the change to take effect
