* 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.
198 230 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.

200 230 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)
201 253 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.
202 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
203 230 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.
204 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
- Bias voltage rating: - 500 V for the shield and induction planes, + 500 V for the collection plane.
205 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
- ELT and Hamamatsu PMTs: +2000 V
206 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk

* Something went wrong during a ramp, I need to turn off the supply!
210 232 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!*
211 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
212 284 Will Foreman
*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.

222 284 Will Foreman
To turn it on:
223 284 Will Foreman
# Switch on the supply
224 284 Will Foreman
# Press "Output on/off" to turn on output
225 284 Will Foreman
# Press "Voltage"
226 225 Roberto Acciarri
# Adjust to 24V using either the knob (left) or the number pad (right)

h2. Power Cycle the ASICs (TPC Wire Noise)

244 220 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
* Anecdotal evidence has shown that analog noise on the TPC wire readout channels can be 
245 220 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
alleviated by power cycling the TPC electronics: ASICs and Warm Receiver/Drivers
246 219 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 Post-It on side of ROC monitor, and whiteboard in MC7).  Choose the *CYCLE* option, which will automatically give a 60 second powerless interlude.

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

TPC electronics power supply near the cryostat in the enclosure.   Due to electrical safety 
250 290 William Badgett
rules you must *NOT* use any of the other outlets on this PDU.  Do *NOT* remove the protective
