Overview

Topics which are relevant to the DAQ/Trigger for the Spring 2018 commissioning run are discussed here.

To-Do

  • High Priority
    • Configure Dave G. Dead time measurement scheme (Arrington’s and/or Morhings thesis)
    • Configure NGC into SHMS PID trigger leg in place of HGC
    • Sanity check SHMS hodoscope CAMAC power supply (noticed unstable behavior during end of fall run)
    • Add SHMS PRSHWRSUM in trigger apparatus (FADC leaf)
    • Remove layer B from HMS pre-shower sum
  • Medium Priority
    • Figure out DAC to mV conversion factor, find old talk regarding setting the DAC values to obtain pedestals a pre-determined value
    • Include multi-hit capability in the trigger apparatus for reference times
    • Integrate TI scalers into report files
    • Configure OR of hodoscope trigger logic into TDC’s and scalers
    • Change trigger leaf names to PRLO from PRSHWRLO etc. (needs to match xscaler)
  • Low Priority
    • Add number of FADC error flags to the report files (front and center)
    • Add number of pulses identified in the window to data tree

DAQ/Trigger Run Plans

  • SHMS & HMS Mode 10 runs
    • SHMS Runs
 Any kinematics, 100k events
 Any kinematics, 100k events, EDTM on at 100 Hz
    • HMS Runs
 Any kinematics, 100k events
 Any kinematics, 100k events, EDTM on at 100 Hz
  • SHMS & HMS EDTM Studies
    • SHMS Single arm EDTM runs at various rates
 SHMS Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 10 Hz (if running longer than 30 minutes)
 SHMS Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 100 Hz (if running less than 30 minutes)
  • HMS Single arm EDTM runs at various rates
 HMS Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 10 Hz (if running longer than 30 minutes)
 HMS Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 100 Hz (if running less than 30 minutes)
  • Coincidence EDTM runs at various rates
Coincidence Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 10 Hz (if running longer than 30 minutes)
Coincidence Run: Any kinematics, EDTM at 100 Hz (if running less than 30 minutes)
  • SHMS PID threshold scan with NGC in trigger (HGC was previously utilized)
*# NGCER 40, PRSH-LO 40, PRSH-HI 60
*# NGCER 30, PRSH-LO 30, PRSH-HI 50
*# NGCER 25, PRSH-LO 25, PRSH-HI 40
*# NGCER 20, PRSH-LO 20, PRSH-HI 30
*# NGCER 15, PRSH-LO 15, PRSH-HI 20
*# NGCER 10, PRSH-LO 10, PRSH-HI 10


  • Single arm SHMS & HMS runs with EL-REAL and EL-CLEAN being readout (need to time these in at the TI front panel)


  • Trigger PID threshold scans
