* Call the Main Control Room (x3721) at the start and at the end of shift. This is required, and pleasant.

* If the beam goes away for more than a few spills, look for Accelerator Alarms in ACNET (a default window). If the problem persists a few minutes, and you see nothing about it in the MCR elog, (or you just really want to find out more), call the MCR.  They're friendly, though they may be super-busy.

57 205 Luke Batten
* If you cannot ssh to FTBFLX machines: Get a kerberos ticket for yourself: @kinit <yourKerberosPrincipal>@, then ssh ftbf_user@ftbflx18 (or ssh ftbf_user@ftbflx15 or ssh ftbf_user@ftbf-cr-03).
58 216 Luke Batten
* If your Kerberos username and password are good, but you can't log on to FTBFLX[NN] machines:  Have someone who CAN log into those machines check that your kerberos principal appears in @~ftbf_user/.k5login@ in the LArIAT section (email the Run Co-ordinator at stjohn@fnal.gov).

* The readback voltage doesn't make any sense, is of the wrong polarity and/or is way above the nominal value, but just for a fraction of time.
112 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
This is most likely just a glitch in the readout, please ignore if it happens once or twice. If it happens too frequently, set voltage to 0, turn off the power supply and report it. 
113 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
114 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
* The readback voltage doesn't make any sense, is of the wrong polarity and is way above the nominal value, and the value is stable~ish (you might see small fluctuations over time)
115 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
This is a typical symptom of a bad power supply. Try to set it back to 0, turn it off and disconnect the SHV cable. If the readout values remain the same, it confirms there is a hardware problem. Please contact Brian Fellenz for repairs if we don't have a spare for that unit.
116 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
117 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
FYI, the power supplies have a given voltage rating and cannot physically deliver voltages beyond that range. Also, their polarities cannot be swapped so if you see the wrong sign on the readout ie a positive voltage on a negative power supply or vice versa, then you can be sure the unit is broken or you have a problem somewhere else in the system.
118 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
- Bias voltage rating: - 500 V for the shield and induction planes, + 500 V for the collection plane.
119 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk

* Something went wrong during a ramp, I need to turn off the supply!
123 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
There is an interlock that prevents you from using the normal fast controls on the power supply when a ramp is on-going. First, *stop the ramp by clicking on the STOP button*. This will stop the ramp and clear the interlock. If you need to go back to 0 quickly, use the fast controls to set the voltage to 0 and *don't forget to turn off the supply!*
124 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
125 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
*Even if the controls appear not to respond, set the voltage to 0 and turn the supply off*. Contact Charlie Briegel first and describe the problem in detail. If you can and if it's safe, disconnect the SHV cable from the power supply. If the readback values remain the same, then the power supply is broken.

* Anecdotal evidence has shown that analog noise on the TPC wire readout channels can be 
143 217 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
alleviated by power cycling the TPC electronics: ASICs and Warm Receiver/Drivers
144 219 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
* You can remotely power cycle the TPC electronics.  Log onto lariat-gateway00.fnal.gov with X-forwarding enabled, type "firefox", and go to http://lariat-pdu02.fnal.gov.  Usename "ftbf" (password posted on whiteboard in MC7).  Choose the *CYCLE* option, which will automatically give a 60

* This mechanism is controlled by a smart power distribution unit (PDU) located under the
