Agenda: minutes
  1. H/w status in Lab 7 CMacW
    Task list:
    1. Clean CCG's x2, need appropriate gas fittings for N2 bottle
    2. Swap hoses on Cryo4 to solve gas leak
    3. Route exhaust tubing from pump filters to outside
    4. Get new Reg for He bottle and spare?
    5. Extend smoke detector pipework for Tracker 2 and hook up to alarm dialler
    6. Investigate poor vac on Cryo3

  4. Electronics and kit list for cosmic test LC
    • VME interface
    • 4 CAEN fanouts
    • Pulse generator (like a DG2020 - there may be a DG2020 already at RAL) for cosmic running
      • needs to generate 2 channels
      • needs to be programmable
      • ** as regards the signal that fakes the ISIS RF signal, the TripT is expecting a signals with a low true integration window of at least 100nsec and at most 200 nsec. This signal must be high outside of the integration window. For previous MICE runs the internally generated integration window was 132 nsec.
    • Also need:
      • 8 VLSBs per tracker readout (16 total - for this arrangement, 1 of the eight is both master and readout VLSB)
      • 1 1550 per tracker readout (1 total)
      • readout cables for both trackers - i mean the blue ones
      • need working local readout (I believe Paul said he could make sure that we have a version of the spreadsheet that can read out the new firmware format)
      • He connection to cassettes
  5. Preparation of firmware etc. ABr
