    DIRC activities/issues since last DIRC meeting

  • 08/15: Matt disabled the dump valve for the UPS battery replacement.
  • 08/17: Inhibited the chiller SIAM, which had been glitching again.
  • 08/22: As an experiment, tried to un-inhibit the chiller SIAM, since it seems to have been behaving nicely. It will get inhibited again if the glitches come back.
  • 08/25 onward: Some intermittently noisy channels making the shifters slightly nervous.
  • 08/27: Jochen and Chris tested the new FEX code with three colliding beam runs. Fast Mon and Prompt Calibration plots looked ok.

  • 09/04: Took standalone runs to find Xmas trees.
