*Procedure:* 
60 277 Jason St. John
* Open a new terminal window on @lariat-cr-02@ (or log in remotely).

* Find the process ID's to kill by issuing the command 
62 277 Jason St. John
<pre>ps aux | grep javaws</pre>
63 277 Jason St. John
* The integer after @lariat@ is the process ID.  For example:

* 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.
155 230 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. 
156 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
157 230 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)
158 230 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.
159 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
160 230 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.

- Bias voltage rating: - 500 V for the shield and induction planes, + 500 V for the collection plane.

* Something went wrong during a ramp, I need to turn off the supply!
167 230 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!*
168 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
169 230 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.

Usename "ftbf" (password posted on Post-It on side of ROC monitor, and whiteboard in MC7).  Choose the *CYCLE* option, which will automatically give a 60 second powerless interlude.

TPC electronics power supply near the cryostat in the enclosure.   Due to electrical safety 
207 220 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
rules you must *NOT* use any of the other outlets on this PDU.  Do *NOT* remove the protective

233 266 Johnny Ho
* Check the "LArIAT Run Status page":http://lariat-wbm.fnal.gov/lariat/run-alert.html. If the number under *Complete Files Waiting* is greater than 10, please call a data handling expert!
234 267 Johnny Ho
* Check the disk space on the @/lariat/data@ mount with the command @df -h /lariat/data@ on a @lariatgpvm@ or @lariat-daq@ machine. If the disk space is 100% full, please call a DQM expert!

If F:MC7AN , F:MC7ANB and F:MC7ANP show the values 1  -6 (in red), this is probably a communication problem, where we are not receiving data from them.
240 261 Monica Nunes
Usually it comes back in a few minutes. 
241 265 Monica Nunes
If not, call the MCR and ask them if they can see those values.
