Closing the panel during observations is a safe policy.
However, there is another workaround: If the Pulpo panel is configured not
to do continuous logging of temps. and vacuum, there should be no
interference. In this case, you should do a manual update each time you
want to read the latest value of a parameter. This is easily accomplished
using the right button of the mouse over the corresponding value field
which display a pop-up menu where you can choose the logging method: "get
value" for one manual read, "stop logging" to stop the continuous logging
and "continue logging" to enable the continuous mode.
Of course you should avoid doing a manual update when a
