- Red alarm may happen during ramping up and down due to overcurrent ("oc") or overvoltage ("ov"). No action is required.
- Red alarm and white alarm may indicate a HV trip.
- In case of TRIP, open HV panel identify the tripped channel ('stat' says TRIP) and reset it by turning it "off" and then "on" (power cycling).
- If the trip was due to a spike of background the power cycle will cure the problem.
- If it keeps tripping, turn this channel off and mask it (with button on the right of the HV panel).
- Page the IFR OpMan in case of frequent trips.
- A "white" alarm can be due to a trip status not promptly acknowledged. In fact, a tripped HV channel ramps down to zero voltage and when it is close to
zero, EPICS sends a white alarm. Also in this case try to recover the channel by power cycling
