Beamline Configurations

We expect to be running with 2V beam loss and beam bump active late in the day.

TOF calibration

Take TOF calibration for the duration of 20:00-00:00 shift.
  • Use beam line settings from run control.

Run Time Preparedness.

  • Downstream PID Detectors (EMR/KL/TOF)
    • to be moved to final positions (July 16)
    • HV to be turned on and DAQ reconfigured (July 16?)
    • Detectors reconnected (July 15)
  • Upstream PID Detectors (Ckov/TOFs)
    • in final positions -- Done (July 4)
  • Trackers
    • Helium on
      • downstream tracker -- Done but not maintained. (July 17)
      • Upstream tracker still has a leak -- to be fixed in August
    • Repair dead channels.
  • Run Control
    • CDB interface
      • Need to improve stability of run control - remove need for IOC restart
    • CDB beam line control
      • Starting beam line current from zero doesn't work due to polarimeter -- Fixed (July 12)
  • Beam line control
    • "Set all to 0" button has not operated in a predictable manner -- Corrected. (July 12)
  • Beam line
    • Decay Solenoid now filled (July 17)
      • Ramp Saturday Afternoon?
    • Correcting limits on the alarm handler.

Expected Work in the Hall

  • Tracker commissioning and repairs to be conducted
    • Will involve Paul R., Alan B. and Ed O.
    • Expect them to be moving in and out of the hall


  • Reminder: The end of run comment must be filled for the run to register as completed on CDB. Ensure that the enter key is struck while in the end comment dialogue box at the end of every run.

Temporary Run Control Instructions

  • Restart Run Control after every run
  • Currently using pro branch in MLCR.
  • If Run Control was no restarted and it crashes the terminal, type "reset" (no quotes) to regain control, then restart Run Control. Do not log in/out
  • If there is doubt contact Pierrick Hanlet or Chris Heidt
