Instructions for FSM operations in Building 161

Connect to the FSM

At the present moment, there is a physical pc (pcfaserdcsdev) taking care of the control, monitoring for the FASER Tracker. Please, follow below instructions to connect to it:

1. Log into

ssh -YC
2. Run the FSM launcher strip, using the following command
source /localdisk/

Operating Voltages

  • Control at the Top-level (layer), it is expected to propagate commands massively down all voltage channels ( HV, VCC and VDD) :
    • State and Status are reflected in the rectangles (modules)
    • Short cuts to the concerned module

  • Control/monitoring at the module level, group or individual switch off/on of all the voltages in a single module. Settings are able to be modified:

  • Control/monitoring per individual channels (settings, trending plots, error bits, etc):


  • Information about the temperatures are found under the 'TIM Board' tab:

  • Two sensors are attached to each module and two sensors correspond to the frame (sensors 4 and 5 here).:
    TIM board tab on the main window

  • The correct mapping of modules can be done by switching each module on/off and notice the change in temperature. TIM board tab on the main window

  • The temperature needs to be checked again after we configure the modules. The configuration is done by running a script through the Unige GUI software as follows.
    • Open a new terminal.
    • Run the following commands:
            cd Software/UnigeGUI/v846
            mono UnigeGpioBoard.exe
      TIM board tab on the main window
      TIM board tab on the main window

  • From File > Run script, you can run the configuration scripts for all modules or for a specific one.

  • Check the temperature again after applying the configuration from the 'TIM Board' tab on the FSM.
