Run Plan (Run IV)/Pixlar

Please help keep this list complete and up to date.

Important notes

  • Always: Please Keep F:MC6IC at or below 1E9 ppp (for halo management reasons)
    Communicate with the MCR to keep the primary protons at this device close to this level.
  • If a run finishes during your shift, please run the "Mooney Plot" script to compute the run's electron lifetime and post it to the elog. You can log in as "lariat" to any gpvm and you will be in the directory where the Mooney Plot scripts can be found.

Note: Current issues :

  • Alarms to be ignored:
    • CAEN Boards 10 and 11 are not streaming data blocks at the moment
    • When we have no beam Magnet and Beam info can be red in Synoptic.

In case the beam goes down

This condition is now handled automatically. Do nothing special unless the DAQ will not run. As usual, call an expert if you cannot solve the problem quickly on your own.

Missing Switchyard signals $30 and $36 should be faked by an ACNET script if they are dropped from the timeline:
  • If the last SWYD was < 120 seconds ago, go to/stay in Beam On mode
  • If the last SWYD was >120 seconds ago, go to/stay in Beam Off Mode by sending fake $30 and $36 based on $00 and delays

Current Runs

If asked by MCR what kind of beam you'd like please specify these:

  • MC6IC around 7E8 (see table below for run-specific value)
  • Steady intensity during the spill: Linear rise on MC6IC during the spill.
  • Energy of 80 GeV for proton.
  • MC7U09 and MC7U10 minimized while
  • MC7U11 and MC7U12 maximized

For the other parameters, see the table below.

(If a 'quantity' i.e. BEAMON, is the first in the list, and doesn't have a sign (+ -) in front of it, it's assumed to be positive).

Investigations and Mysteries

Things to check:

  1. Visual inspection and documentation of the as-is
  2. Fix the problem

Checkout before buttoning up
  1. Before doing any work on TPC, you MUST lock out the Glassman power supply in MCenter control room prior to this test with a RED LOTO lock, done by a LOTO II qualified person.
  2. Confirm correct correspondence of bias feedthrough connectors to end of cable, before bias board.
  3. ✓ Re-insert TPC if needed.
  4. ✓ Three Lariateers independently confirm firm mechanical connection (and pin alignment!) on all 10 motherboards
  5. Is there a ground connection for the Last Field Cage Tube? Check it.
  6. Confirm filter pot inline resistances with blue DVM
  7. With stop sign in place, ohmic test to confirm field cage is in the circuit again.
  8. Confirm collection voltage is connected to collection wires
  9. Measure VDD and VDDP voltages at the front panel of the WRD boards. If they are more than 25 mV off
    from 1.8V this indicates a potentially serious problem -- contact Dean for advice. Post values in eLog
  10. With Bias wire voltages on, measure current flow and verify amps match expected values
  11. Take a teensy channel-by-channel pulser run and verify all channels are firing where expected
  12. Turn on the teensy pulser and page through all 480 channels with the waveform program. Check for
    abnormal gains and shapes
  13. Check for ground shorts between cathode cable and ground. Glassman power
    supply in MCenter control room should still be locked by red LOTO lock.
  14. Throughout the close up checkout process, take several pedestal runs and look for dead and noisy
    channels

Other investigations

  • FIXED: 2017.03.23 Why did the induction plane draw 80 microamps at ~ -18 V, when the collection and shield, at a few hundred volts negative and positive, draw ~microamps? Because we mounted the induction in the wrong way!
