CLAS12 Run Group M, Fall 2021
Beam energies: 2.1, 4.0, 6.0 GeV (1.96 GeV/pass)
Important: Document all your work in the logbook!

RC: Stepan Stepanyan

PDL: Valery Kubarovsky



  • 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.

The integrated rates on the upstream counters have to be in the range 0-15 Hz (rates up 100 Hz are acceptable) and the rates on the midstream counters have to be in the range 10-20 Hz (acceptable up to 50 Hz) @50 nA. Counting rates in the range of hundreds of Hz may indicate bad beam tune or bleed-through from other Halls.

  • Note 2: Nominal beam positions: 2C24A (X=xx mm, Y=yy mm) , 2H01 (X=xx mm, Y=yy mm)
  • Note 3: Do not turn OFF FTOF HVs, even during the beam tune with CW beam (turn off if tuned/pulsed beam in the upstream beamline)
  • Note 4: In case of a Torus and/or Solenoid Fast Dump do the following:
    1. Notify MCC to request beam OFF and to drop Hall B status to Power Permit
    2. Call Engineering on-call
    3. Make separate log entry with copies to HBTORUS and HBSOLENOID logbooks. In the "Notify" field add Ruben Fair, Probir Goshal, Dave Kashy and esr-users@jlab.org
    4. Notify Run Coordinator
    5. Turn off all detectors
  • Note 5: When the beam is being delivered to the Faraday Cup:
    1. the Fast Shut Down elements: Upstream, Midstream, Downstream, BOM, and Solenoid should always be in the state UNMASKED
    2. No changes to the FSD threshold should be made without RC or beamline expert approval
  • Note 6: Any request for a special run or change of configuration has to be approved by the RC & documented
  • Note 7: * Fill out BTA hourly. Click "Load from EPICS" to automatically fill the left side then correct as needed.
  • Note 8: Reset CLAS12MON frequently to avoid histogram saturation.


Run Plan: Nov 10 - 12 2021

  • Restore physics quality beam for the production running at 3-pass, start from the tagger dump (see instructions [1])
  • After physics quality beam is established to the Faraday cup dump, proceed with the following:
    • Establish produciton current for LH2 target (limit 80 nA), run DAQ with the produciton trigger Config. PROD66 , trigger rgm_6GeV_inb_v1_0.trg )
    • Trigger Validation Runs with the established conditions (Config. PROD66_PIN :
  1. Random trigger @30 kHz 4 hours with the trigger rgm_6GeV_inb_RNDM_30kHz_v1_0.trg
  2. Trigger without DC roads: 1 hour with the trigger rgm_6GeV_inb_No_Dc_Roads_v1_0.trg
  • Production data taking with rgm_6GeV_inb_v1_0.trg 2 hour runs

Hall Access Items (Wednesday, November 3rd):

Nominal Beam Positions

  • 2H01, X: +1.0 mm, Y: -2.6 mm
  • 2C21, X: 0.0 mm, Y: 0.2 mm
  • 2C24, X: -0.3 mm, Y: -0.8 mm

FSD Thresholds

  • Upstream: 2000 Hz
  • Midstream: 2000 Hz
  • Downstream: 700000 Hz
  • BOM: 60000

Reference Harp Scans for Beam on Faraday Cup: 2C21 [2], 2C24 (tagger harp) [3], 2H01 [4]

Reference Harp Scans for Beam on Tagger dump: 2C21 [5], 2C24 (tagger harp) [6]

Reference Monitoring Histograms (40 nA, production trigger) [7]

Counter rates

  • Upstream counters integrated rates: 0-15 Hz (acceptable up to 100 Hz are acceptable) @50 nA.
  • Midstream counters: 10-20 Hz (acceptable up to 50 Hz) @50 nA.
  • Counting rates of ~ hundreds of Hz may indicate bad beam tune or bleed-through from other Halls.

Beamline vacuum: should be not higher than 5e-5.


General Instructions:

  • 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 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 cool down.
  • Do not run more than 30 minutes with >150 W beam to Faraday cup without the beam blocker.
  • Turn DC HV off only for beam tuning; if no beam is available or when the 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
  • Check that no unnecessary 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.
  • Reference harp scans: 2C21, 2C24, 2H01

Every Shift:

  • Follow the run plan as outlined by RC
  • If any concern about beam stability, ask MCC if orbit locks are on (they should be).
  • Keep shift summary up to date in HBLOG. Record all that happens.
  • Document any beam condition change and send scaler GUIs to HBLOG
  • Fill and submit the shift checklist in the logbook

Every Run:

Log screenshots of: (this is for the remote shifter, see dedicated tab above.)

  • Main beamline GUI overview
  • clas12mon Detector occupancy plots
  • Trigger rate GUI
  • FT-Cal FADC scalers
