h1. Communicating with the wire chambers

h2. Running the Wire Chamber Mini-DAQ

setup ftbf
cd ~ftbf_user/experiments/mc7
Look in instructions.txt

When you have a few seconds before a spill (in case you want to type a comment before you start the run)

./daq-mc7.py

This daq fills one data file, appending each spill, until the user stops it.

h2. Looking at the data, Beam Study

ssh ftbflx01
setup cern
cd ~ftbf_user/experiments/mv7/BmStud

h2. How to do a hard reboot of the WC

If the wire chamber controller at ftbfwc02 starts refusing connections it may need a reboot:

* from a browser go to http://ftbf-pdu00.fnal.gov
* User: admin Password: <on the board in the CR>
* Navigate to this screen:

!ftbfpdu00_control_screen.png!

* click on "Outlet 6" and then choose "Immediate Reboot" from the menu at the top
* The state will change to "Off" but will be pending. Wait a little while and refresh the screen or log back in. The WC should be back on.
