keyword=EDTM Setup Slightly Changed both HRS's
I modified the EDTM setup for S2m so that I would be sending a narrow pulse
into the S2m electronics. By taking the back panel output, the signal is
10 microseconds long. I could still see this pulse coming from the ADC
cables before going into the long delay, though on a very zoomed in scale
on the scope. The EDTM pulses now are < 100 ns before going to S2m.
From the ADC cable and before the long delay, the EDTM pulse is less than
2 mV compared to the > 20 mV PMT pulse. After the ~ 880 ns of delay, the
signal should be hard to discern in the ADC spectra. This should prevent
any possible interference from the EDTM pulser. Clearly 10 microseconds
was too long.
The width was changed by going through another module on both HRS's. One
can remove the EDTM signal by placing a cut on the variable DBB.edtmbb.
Before I leave, I will disable the EDTM signal and take a run without it.
However it should not cause anymore problems if that was the issue.
