ACD Pedestal calibrations

Purpose and use

To measure the baseline PHA signal (ie, the PHA value when there is no physics signal) for each electronics channel. This calibration used in the configuration system to set the zero suppresion threshold and as part of setting the MIP scale. Most other calibrations require correct pedestals to set the zero point of the signal. This calibration is used in simulation to provide realistic PHA values.

Required inputs

100 or more periodic or solicted triggers. Generally one run, or the first 1k events from an AcdPedestal lci run.
