Action 1

We have to plan the installation of cables inside of T9 and from T9 to the control room and back for the experiments in September. I suggest we set up a table (Excel, Twiki; whatever you prefer) that allows us to describe every cable with all relevant details. This table has to be kelp up to date and will serve us from now until the end of the experiments. For each cable we have to know (at least):

  • Starting point
  • End point
  • Length (approximatively)
  • Type of cable (HV, signal, etc.)
  • Purpose (e.g. connecting scintillator 1 to channel 3 of the NIM discriminator)
  • Cable identifier (number or other label)

Action 2

Related to the cabling we need to list the HV connections:

  • Number of channels
  • Max. voltage
  • Max. current
From that we can derive a shopping list for the Pool. We have to be able to remote control all HV channels from the counting room. If possible we should use Ethernet controlled mainframes and avoid CAENET (which is not supported anymore)

Action 3

We need the following cables (not for T10 but for the test of 1290mod when it is ready in the lab + for the future).

I separate them in two categories fast and long term Fast:

  • 1 x 34 pin flat cable to connect from NIM to VME crate (~130cm) we have already one which was moved to T10. Done
  • 2 x bunch of 8 cables (coming from PCs I think) note: the ‘channel 0’ has a 3 pin connector. We will need this exact channel by bad luck. A quick mode would be as Markus suggested to cut the connector part that is sticking out. Done

Long term:

  • 5 x 2pin ECL cables 15 cm Done
  • 5 x 2pin ECL cables 100 cm Theo to comment if the cables made by Markus are OK

Action 4

Instead of using DWC for the Pyramid we can make two structures where we could put two isotdaq scintillators in coincidence but with an adjustable area of coincidence from say 5x5 cm to 20x20 cm such that we can increase or decrease the size of the resulting counter depending on the rate and/or the level of detail we want. The support structure has to be slim because there is not much space between the absorber and the stone. This structure also has allow for the two 1x1 cm scintillators to be positioned one behind the other.
