Information concerning the SVD3 setup during a beam test

In the beam area setup the whole crate and the power supply with the usual spider cable and the two Keithly 2410 high voltage supplies. Monitoring of the 2410 happens via a NI MAX interface that connects to the GPIB-Ethernet interface and needs to be configured there. The IP and password are noted on the device. The software can be found on heros in medialib/LONGTERM/longterm R3.1_doubleSided as a normal *.vi file. 

Default adresses 16 and 17 as defined in labview, need to figure out on site which is which, if the voltage selected (e.g. 100V) is applied as +50/-50 or if it is applied as +100/-100 before connecting the cables. 

Take a run without dut as well to check the telescope integrity. Without dut in beamline!!!!!

  56   Mon Jun 8 16:53:13 2015 Benedikt WürknerSVD3 (H6B)EUTelescope Fitter not working investigation    Unknown

Apparently every problem can be attributed to a misalignment problem. The telescope has troubles with heavily misaligned DUTs. Was resolved by creating different gear-files for each run with pretty precise coordinates of the DUT position calculated for the telescope coordinate system. 

Additionally one has to watch out for misaligned planes of the telescope itself. It was required to allow for more than 2mm offset for the telescope planes behind the DUTs. This can be easily checked by looking at the PreAligner plots in the -hitmaker-histo.root file.

It look something like this:

and not like this:

  80   Wed Jun 10 18:05:03 2015 Benedikt WürknerSVD3 (H6B)FEI4 configuration   NoUnknown

There are two planes, one fixed upstream and one fixed downstream. 

CIS3WII_6 upstream and CIS2WI_IBL2 downstream.

They are configured using the pc in H6B which can be accessed via microsoft remote desktop from the network 192.168.5.x using the ip 

The configuration files can be found in the folder "E:\ConfigurationCMS\" on the server and are named after the modules. 

Only one of the FEI4 detectors can be used at a time since they are of different generations (FEI4A and FEI4B) which can't be used at the same time with the available USB board. vnc

The configuration for EUDAQ needs to be adapted for the used module by changing the name of the configuration file. 

SkipConfiguration = no
UseSingleBoardConfig = no
boards = 230
modules[230] = 1
config_file = E:\ConfigurationCMS\CIS3_W11_06_thr1600_7to21ke_modified.cfg.root
#config_file = E:\ConfigurationCMS\CIS2_W02_IBL1_thr1600_7to14_modified.cfg.root
fpga_firmware = E:\icwiki_svn\USBPixI4\host\tags\release-5.3\config\usbpixi4.bit
lvl1_delay = 16
tlu_trigger_data_delay = 10

In my experience switching between the planes also requires a restart of the USBPix DAQ because apparently something is not working with the reload of a different config file afterwards. I had the phenomenon that the DAQ responded like it was working but the datastream was empty. Therefore always check the online monitor for hitmaps.
