ALERT! Disclamer: The information presented in these pages is very preliminary and currently under development, it is at most a partial wiki version of the FASSER-DCS user's manual draft which will be released soon by Henso Abreu and Enrique Kajomovitz.


The main aims of the FASER Detector Control System (DCS) system are:

  • Ensuring the safety of detector:
    • Monitoring operation parameters of the detector’s power system
    • Monitoring humidity and temperature for the detector
    • Triggering alarms, and emergency procedures
    • Implementing autonomous integrity checks and diagnostics
    • Provide a user interface to inform FASER users on the state and status of the experiment sub-systems

  • Controlling the detector
    • Implement autonomous protocols for transitions between the different operational states
    • Provide a user interface for configuring operational parameters of the power and interlock systems
    • Provide a configuration-DB interface to save and load configurations of the operational parameters of the power and interlock systems

  • Archive time-history of detector parameters
    • Keep time series of parameters, states and statuses monitored through the DCS
    • Provide a user interface to access the archived parameters

Detailed information is well summarised in the following document DCS Specifications

Instructions for FSM operations in Building 161:

Instructions to connect, control and monitoring voltages via the Tracker FSM for test in B161
