To-Do list

This section is aimed at helping the Device Physicist remember the list of things that need to be done prior to the S800 tuning.

In S3 vault

  • Ensure that the object scintillator is in good conditions and has enough shimming positions to withstand the expected rates during the course of the experiment. The guideline document describing the installation and shimming procedure can be accessed here
  • Make sure Intermediate PPACs have gas

In data U6

  • Source the environment file to run the DAQ:
    • Open a terminal in u6pc5 and type ssh -Y spdaq50
    • Type . /usr/opt/nscldaq/xxxx/daqsetup.bash, where xxxx is the nscldaq version number (11.0-015 on Oct 26, 2015)
  • Verify with S800 Device Physicist that S800 DAQ has been installed and it is ready for the experiment. S800 DAQ can be installed by typing command goinstalldaq and following the script instructions (please, contact the S800 Device Physicist if you are not sure of what you're doing).
  • Verify that stagearea in u6pc5 is pointing to the right place. After typing ls -l ~/stagearea in a u6pc5 terminal, you should see: /user/s800/stagearea → /mnt/daqtesting/s800/exxxxx, where xxxxx corresponds to the experiment number. If the experiment number is not right, contact S800 Device Physicist.
  • Check scalers while running S800 DAQ

At the end of the experiment

  • Verify with S800 Device Physicist that S800 DAQ software is uninstalled. This can be done by typing script gouninstalldaq (please, contact Device Physicist if you are not sure of what you're doing)
  • Unbias detectors, CRDC interface boards, CRDCs gate, etc
