 Before entering the vault, inform the operator in charge so that the beam is being stopped and the RadSafety wall plug and scintillator for S3 are inserted, otherwise the cyclotron'​s RF will trip as soon as the door to the vault is being opened ​ (please check also this [[https://​intra.nscl.msu.edu/​ccf/​infoexperimenters/​vaultaccess.php|link]]). ​ Before entering the vault, inform the operator in charge so that the beam is being stopped and the RadSafety wall plug and scintillator for S3 are inserted, otherwise the cyclotron'​s RF will trip as soon as the door to the vault is being opened ​ (please check also this [[https://​intra.nscl.msu.edu/​ccf/​infoexperimenters/​vaultaccess.php|link]]). ​

 The S3 vault has three levels (see picture below), the top level, the middle level, and the bottom level. The different levels and sections within these levels are locked off by rad safety chains. Whenever a chain is unlocked, the area behind it needs to be checked and secured. When going around to the buttons, check the vault for other people, especially those working in areas not directly visible from where you stand. ​ The S3 vault has three levels (see picture below), the top level, the middle level, and the bottom level.
