51
52
* We will take data with TOF0, TOF1 and Ckov. This means that we will use only one LDC (VME crate).

* The main goal of this run is the continue with the commissioning of the new trigger system, and to investigate the stability issue found last weekend. 
54
* We will start with the debugging of the the stability issue. This operation will require unspecified amount of time.

#  The beam line will be first set for Reference Run without Decay Solenoid.
63
# Then we will continue with the Ckov momentum scan on the pion momentum
64
65
h2. CKOV momentum scan run
66
67
* We will do a momentum scan on the pion momentum. There should be enough statistics with only 2000 actuations each run.
68
* To be carried out simultaneously with the debugging of the stability issue.

h2. TOF calibration by using the old trigger system.
81 1 Boyd, Steven
82 9 Karadzhov, Yordan
* This calibration will be used for comparison New vs. Old Trigger
83
* The goal will be to take 30 000 target pulse or more.
84
* Trigger provided by the old Tr. system.

h2. -CKOV HV scan run-
94 9 Karadzhov, Yordan
95
* We also want to do a Ckov HV and momentum scan.
96
* To be carried out simultaneously and parasitically with the TOF calibration run on electron beam as shown above
97
* Previous run to be split into 5 runs with 5000 pulses each run, scanning in a range of +- 50 V around nominal settings for CKOV HV settings

h2. Q123 Scan
109
110
* We will take data with TOF0 and TOF1, however TOF0 is most important.
111
* The main goal of these operations is to investigate upstream beamline setting (Q1,Q2,Q3). In particular settings with lower current in Q1 are investigated. 
112
* This activity will use the new calibrated trigger system.
