The Yerevan test stand for Aerogel detector is located in the room adjacent to Walter's office above the machine shop in the EEL building.

It has a single VME crate connected to a PC called hcdaq2. The system runs CODA 3.10. The VME crate currently has a single CAEN V792 ADC.

Login to hcdaq2 with the username "coda" and ask Bob Michaels for the password.

To start the DAQ, on hcdaq2 type

the VME crate and from there you type "startroc".
