RunPlan 12 October 2012

We plan to start running on Friday 12 October - starting after lunch when the Hall is clear. We will then run full days for the rest of the weekend (Sat/Sun). This implies that we will need 2 shifters for Friday and 3 for Saturday and Sunday.

Goals of the October Run:
This run has been instituted to test significant upgrades to both the Online Systems and MAUS Software packages. However, if the collaboration would like to collect data for analysis, ideas are welcome. Note that we will not have the use of the Decay Solenoid or the KL detector. We will have TOF0, CKOVa, CKOVb, and TOF1 in the beamline.

We will be running with our previous limit of 2 V while using the beam bump. This may change when we have a chance to perform an activation run, but we were unable to do so before this User Run.

  1. Overall Online
    • new OS installed on all MLCR computers
    • new master server; new account setups
    • new UPSs installed
  2. DAQ
    • final live data test of new system - upgraded version of DATE & SL
    • new interface with C&M
  3. C&M
    • full read/write from CDB
    • overall system test of Step I Run Control
    • expert testing/feedback on Run Control
    • new HV user documentation
  4. Software
    • online test server setup functional
    • new control room branch of MAUS
    • improved TOF/CKOV online plots
  5. Data processing
    • auto-run of datamover after run
    • auto-run of data processing /MC generation on Grid

Data Requested

  • possible data for final/more proton absorber settings study
  • D1 Field Strength Test
  • muon or pion data with Q789 OFF

Test to see if D1 Field Strength is set as expected:

Magic Spreadsheet pion beam, 430MeV at target. Nominal 426.7 at D1
Either run -ve or else with 83 mm proton absorber.

Q1 Q2 Q3 D1 DS D2 Q4 Q5 Q6 Q7 Q8 Q9
91.62 167.56 102.58 297.00 - 158.12 282.96 379.47 251.83 263.79 399.44 341.52

Repeat with D1 at 297.00, 320.00, 344.53, 369.00 A
Please note down cumulative scaler values for TOF0 trigger requests and LMC1234

Please wait for at least 2 minutes after magnet current has settled before taking data.
300 actuations should do for each run for +ves, more for -ves.

Note these settings push magnets pretty hard - expect to see warnings on magnet temperature for D1, Q5 and Q7 and check against eLog 1744 if in doubt.
