  • Jan 23 2018 : Removed the HMS STOF from reference time signal. Log Entry
    • SHMS STOF was also removed, though no logbook entry about it.
  • Feb 16 2018: Add cabling for the "6 GeV" electronic deadtime measurement.Log Entry.

Aug 2018

  • Aug 9 2018 : Removed El_CLEAN from SHMS/HMS reference time Log Entry
  • Aug 9 2018: In ROC03 and ROC06 the widths were 50 and 45 ns, respectively. Changed to 30 ns. Log Entry
