TOFp System Procedure:
pVPD High Voltage On or Off

This is the procedure to turn on or off the High Voltage applied to the pVPD Detectors. The pVPD HV is to be turned off when there is the possibility of stray beams in the WAH, and it is to be turned on during normal running. This HV is provided by the LeCroy 1440 power supply (Rack 1B4, South) that also provides the CTB HV. Numbering as in the LeCroy 1440 from 0-15 for slots, and 0-15 for channels in each slot, the pVPD channels are: (slot,channel) = (3,15), (4,15), (5,15), (6,15), (7,15), and (8,15).

  6. Click on the botton "pVPD HV On".
  1. Use the GUI to view each of the individual slot display pages separately. pVPD channels exist in slots 3 through 8 inclusive.
  2. Look at the GUI information for the channel displayed lowest on each of these pages. This is channel 15 on each page.
  3. In all cases, the RGB marker should be GREEN, indicating the 1440 is providing the proper voltage within preset limits.
