Beam Wire chambers

We have two chambers used to monitor the secondary beam.
Almost everything at Wire Chambers applies to the beam chambers.

Upstream chamber
  • placed just downstream of LArIAT in a break in the beam pipe
  • HV setting:
  • Controller: ftbfwc02
Target chamber
  • placed just before the NOvA target in MC7
  • HV setting:
  • Controller: ftbfwc07


These run using the FTBF wire chamber daq which can be accessed from one of the FTBF machines

ssh -XY
cd /home/tmp_forJason/EDIT2018/MWPC-MCenter (location subject to change)
