-The high-voltage of the [[Detectors#​Tracking Parallel Plate Avalanche Counters (TPPAC)|TPPACs]],​ [[Detectors#​Ionization Chamber|Ion Chamber]], the [[Detectors#​Cathode Readout Drift Chambers (CRDC)|CRDCs]],​ [[Detectors#​Plastic scintillators|FP Scintillator]],​ and [[Detectors#​Hodoscope|Hodoscope]] are remotely controlled via GUI control panel (see figure below). The GUI can be opened from the desktop of the u6pc5 control computer. This application allows also to set a maximum limit in the detector current. The voltages of these detectors depend on the Z of the fragments to be measured and their energy. The figure below shows the HV GUI during experiment e10002, which used Si-26 and Al-25 fragments at around 115 MeV/u. These voltages can be used as a reference before starting an experiment. However, the final values will have to be modified during the beam tuning in order to optimize the performance of the detectors. It is convenient to verify the reference values with **Daniel Bazin**.+The high-voltage of the [[Detectors#​Tracking Parallel Plate Avalanche Counters (TPPAC)|TPPACs]],​ [[Detectors#​Ionization Chamber|Ion Chamber]], the [[Detectors#​Cathode Readout Drift Chambers (CRDC)|CRDCs]],​ [[Detectors#​Plastic scintillators|FP Scintillator]],​ and [[Detectors#​Hodoscope|Hodoscope]] are remotely controlled via GUI control panel (see figure below).
