REMUS (Radiation and Environment Monitoring Unified Supervision) is the software in charge of providing Supervision, Control and Data Acquisition for the entire suite of monitoring stations of HSE.

These monitoring stations cover all radiological and environmental parameters that can potentially be affected by the operation of the facilities of the Organization.

REMUS is an innovative system, allowing run-time installation of equipment, run-time edition of synoptic and heterogeneous equipment interfacing.

REMUS provides synoptic views, real time and archived measurements and events to:

  • HSE Radiation Protection Experts
  • HSE Environmental Specialists
  • CERN Control Centre (CCC), Experiment Control Rooms, Safety Control Rooms
  • CERN Fire Brigade

REMUS strengths:

  • Reliability: REMUS is fully redundant. Availability of REMUS is above 99.99% since production launch (2013-2021)
  • Scalability: Number of archived records : 80 Bn/year; Number declared alarms: 120 000; Number tags: 850 000
  • Performance: REMUS  handles a throughput of 25 000 Input/Output operations per second. Client start up in less than 10sec.
  • Adaptability: REMUS Interfaces 86 different types of electronics.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: New Equipements, Applications, Synoptic can be created and deployed in run-time, without intervention of REMUS IT Team.

ERGO

Data Visualisation Tool

ERGO (Environment and Radiation Graphic Observer) is a Data Visualisation Tool, based on Java 11 and JDavaViewer. It provides CERN Control Rooms access to all the historical and near-real-time Measurements and Events recorded by the REMUS system.

The data is fetched from various data sources with different latencies and time resolutions. Oracle Rdb and NXCALS are used for historical data; Kafka and InfluxDB for near-real-time data:

REMUS Web is a web infrastructure that allows REMUS users to visualize and extract near-real-time and historical data from desktop and mobile devices. It collects and combines data from multiple sources and presents it to the users in a format suitable for analysis. The application allows real-time access to SCADA data away from the control room, which is important to assess and intervene quickly in critical situations. REMUS Web is based on modern web technologies, using as main technologies React for the front-end and Spring Boot for the back-end.
 

REMUS Web includes the following functionalities:

REMUS Web Functionalities

 

REMUS Web relies on state-of the-art technologies for web applications, such as Spring Boot, React and WebSockets:

REMUS Web Architecture

 

Using the same Data Access API as ERGO, it allows REMUS users to access trends from web-browsers (desktop or mobile):
