Beamline Configurations

We will run at 1V beam loss with the target in double dip mode.
The plan would be to dip the target at both MS/128 and MS/64 to ~ 1V level.
ISIS will then do BLM tests to find out what is wrong with the ISIS DAQ.
Sarah Fisher and Bryan Jones from ISIS will be present.

Henry: Confirm we have 2 ms headroom for increasing target delay at MS/64 without affecting following pulse - this is a <5min. job agreed verbally with Dean Adams (11 June 2014). Ideally do this at 4V MS/64 running - ISIS will need a couple of loss levels to understand the problem .

There will not be any running of beam into the hall, but we are still required to lock the Hall.

Run must finish at 12:00 to allow work on the DS power supply to start at 12:30.
