The data from the meteo are now written in the folder : C:\Program Files\Oregon Scientific\Weather OS\DATA Also we installed two additional ( T& RH ) sensors which are wireless connected with the main main station Now we have data from 3 sensors : The sensor on the main meteo unit located inside the gas room called sensor-0 one inside the RPCs tent : sensor-1 one close to the GRPCs : sensor-2 We connected the Ghent-030 chamber to the HV ( Red extension cable repaired)

  • 21/03/2014 Meteo data are now written in C:\Documents and Settings\LocalAccount\Desktop\MeteoGIF in order to make the folder shareable. The sensor-1 appears inactive. Sensor-0 apparently produces measurements with a wrong timestamp.
  • 23/03/2014 METEO STATION: now sensor-0 is ok. Sensor-1 is still inactive. Actually sensor-2 is used to produce data for the HV correction.
  • 01/04/2014 17:30 source OFF, baterries of the sensor-1 changed, sensor-1 moved from the tent ouside, T, RH are fake, Main unit reset, Datalogger update configured to every 15 min. Both sensors are seen by the meteo, 18:15 : sensor-1 moved inside the tent, 18:20 Source ON
  • 09/04/2014 GHENT-030 removed from GIF, tested in 904 lab: HVscan OK (click here), currently under stabilitytest at 904
  • 09/04/2014: wireless sensor communication problems due to the radiation and concrete blocks. Lead blocks placed in front of the sensor in order to reduce the radiation, but the use of too much lead leads to bad signal strength. Tried to find the optimal position of the sensors, currently without success
  • 11/04/2014 Base unit meteo station moved inside the concrete blocks, behind the source at 2m height. Sensors behind lead blocks. Tested on 11-12-13 and 14 April: connection is stable, meteo station is working perfectly.

  • 09/05/2014 9:30 am Severiano switch on the computer meteo started again but he didn't check the gas , gas was still off, 11:00 am stability set HV at 9.5 KV because meteo station sent again data but gas is still off
  • 16/05/2014 6:50 pm Nicolas went to GIF and realized that gas was not circulating he found the gas room without power, all the equipments in the gas room are off, computer controlling the mass flow meters is off, etc. , no any gas circulating gas kill Unit is also off. In the rest of the building there is power, Source is ON, Grpcs equipments in the source area are on. Air condition inside the RPC- tent was off. Nicolas switched it on Main frames in the control rooms were ON ,computer of Lyon in the control room is ON. Concerning the RPCs, no gas kill signal on the frame (because the electronic Unit of the gas kill if OFF), Nicolas found several channels tripped, he switched off the HV for the rest of the channels,HV stopped for all gaps at 7:00 pm STABILITY STOPPED at 07:10 pm , gas piquet called

  • 14/06/2014 7:40 am power cut, source went OFF, power in the gas room off --> no gas circulation, computer off, , air condition off, no meteo data, From log file of stability software connexion with main frame has been lost no any data until 5:20 pm, at 5:20 pm connexion with main frame established, HV= 9.5 KV meteo station still off line , the program remains stable at the last applied voltage because meteo file is not updated
  • 16/06/2014 12:30 pm , Nicolas set the HV OFF and STABILITY Stopped, gas piquet called, 02:00 pm gas ON , 02:45 pm source ON

  • 20/06/2014 Gas kill electronics solved, HVscan source ON on all gaps
  • 21/06/2014 Monitoring started (all gaps 9.5 kV), temperature correction included
  • 23/06/2014 Source off due to installation equipment at GIF?
