CLAS12 Engineering Run, Winter 2018
Beam energy 10.6 GeV (5 pass)
Important: Document all your work in the logbook!
Remember to fill in the run list at the beginning and end of each run (clas12run@gmail.com can fill the run list)

RC: Raffaella De Vita

  • (757) 575-7540
  • 9 575 7540 from Counting Room
  • devita@jlab.org

PDL: Eugene Pasyuk

  • (757) 876-1789
  • 9 876-1789 from Counting Room
  • pasyuk@jlab.org


  • Note 1: Be very mindful of the background rates in the halo counters, rates in the detectors, and currents in the SVT for all settings to ensure that they are at safe levels.
  • Note 2: At the end of each run, follow the DAQ restart sequence "end run", "abort", "reset", "download", "prestart", "go". After DAQ prestart is complete reboot the scaler IOCs with the command: iocjscalerRestartAll.sh. Note: After each step, make sure it is complete in the Run Control message window. If a roc has crashed, find which one it is and issue a roc_reboot command and try again. Contact the DAQ expert if there are any questions.
  • Note 3: Nominal beam positions: 2C21 (X=0.0 mm, Y=0.0 mm), 2C24 (X=0.0 mm, Y=0.7 mm), 2H01 (X=0.3 mm, Y=0.0 mm)

Run Plan:

(last update 1/24 - 11:00 pm)

  • Continue data taking at 60% field (negatives inbending) and solenoid to 60% field:
    • Production: 5 nA beam current on LH2 target, DAQ configuration PROD (selected by clicking on Configure before the Download), trigger file tr_electron.trg (selected at the Download), beam position as indicated above; Take 2 hours runs until 5 pm.
  • At 5pm, empty the target and take a run in the same configuration as before until beam will be terminated for the pass change to 10.6 GeV.
  • While taking data, monitor routinely trigger scalers (make sure all bits in the first column of the table are non-zero, see https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3518829 as an example), live time, monitoring histograms, CED, detector scalers.
  • When the pass change will start:
    • Ask MCC to ramp the tagger magnet up to prepare for beam tuning.
    • Contact the RC to ramp the solenoid to full field.
    • Before asking for beam, turn sensitive detectors off including trackers (SVT, MVT, FTT, DC), Central Detectors (CTOF, CND), FTOF and RICH: refer to the manuals or call the experts for any questions.
  • Prepare to re-establish beam following the "Establish-physics quality beam" procedure at [1]. Refer to the 10.6 GeV harp scans of January 12 (https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3511621, https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3511611). Call the beamline expert when you have beam on the tagger yoke.
  • Once beam tuning to the tagger yoke is complete and before degaussing the tagger magnet, perform Moller runs as established by the beamline expert.
  • Proceed to tune beam to the Faraday Cup. Refer to previous harp scans at https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3511697, https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3511694 and https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3511692.
  • Adjust the beam position to have uniform rates on the FT calorimeter. Record these positions and inform MCC these are now our nominal.
  • Make sure FSD thresholds are set correctly for the specific beam current used in the following runs, integration time is set to 5 ms, and that the orbit locks are on.
  • Once beam is tuned to the FC, switched all detectors on. Call the SVT expert to switch the SVT on. Restore DC HV setting to be (8,9,9) for Region 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Make sure that the voltage for all channels comes up at the set values and no channels are off.
  • When hall C target cooldown is complete, call the RC to ramp the torus to full field.
  • Start an empty target run: DAQ configuration PROD (selected by clicking on Configure before the Download), trigger file tr_electron.trg (selected at the Download), beam position as indicated above; consult with the RC to establish the appropriate beam current. Take 2 hours runs.


General Instructions:

  • For a given beam current, compute the FSD thresholds according to the Establish Physics Quality Beam document. Call MCC to update the values. Contact the beamline expert if there are questions about setting the FSD thresholds.
  • The main lights in the Hall (dome lights) and the Forward Carriage lights are being kept off because of light leaks affecting some of the detectors. If these lights are switched on during an access, they should be switched off when leaving the Hall. Note that the dome lights when switched off cannot be turned back on immediately because they require 10-15 min to cooldown.
  • Do not run more than 60 minutes above 30 nA with 5-pass beam without the beam blocker in front of Faraday cup. Put beam blocker in for long running at high currents for 5 pass operations.
  • Turn DC HV off only for beam tuning; if no beam is available or when beam is stable, keep them on even if you are not taking data.
  • In case of loss of communication with IOCBTARG, follow instructions at https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3502218
  • With any issue contact On-Call Experts or RC - do not spend more than 15-20 min trying to fix the problem.
  • All jscaler iocs (iocjscalerX) on the health screen (under DAQ tab) must be restarted after every DAQ prestart is completed.
  • Check that no unecessary beamline-related screens are open. This includes particularly the big beamline overview screen, but also and any motor/harp/collimator screens, and ioc health screens.

Every Shift:

  1. Follow run plan as outlined by RC
  2. If any concern about beam stability, ask MCC if orbit locks are on (they should be).
  3. Keep shift summary up to date in HBLOG. Record all that happens.
    • Check on white board all scalers, strip charts and monitoring plots that need to be logged regularly
    • Document any beam condition change and send scaler GUIs to HBLOG
    • Fill out BTA hourly. Click "Load from EPICS" to automatically fill the left side.
    • Fill and submit the shift checklist in the logbook
  4. Perform 2H01A harp scan once per shift or when beam conditions have changed, based on beam monitors (BPMs, halo rates, beam-viewer). During harp scans the HV for DC and HTCC should be OFF.

Every Run:

  1. Log screenshots of:
    • main scaler GUI display
    • Detector occupancy plots
    • Trigger rate gui
    • Beam strip charts
