SciFi is only to be used for optics calibration and not general production runs.

The DAQ must be set in the 'SciFi' configuration to read out SciFi data.

    • Replays run on a-onl computers, same as standard replay, but in specific, separate directory
    • $ goscifi (This will take you to the relevant directory)
    • $ fullReplay runnum (to replay run runnum)
    • This will produce a root file apex_SciFi_runnum.root in the same directory as standard replays (/chafs1/work1/apex/Rootfiles/)

How to inspect SciFi output

SciFi (or the fadcs reading out SciFi data) can be ran and replayed in mode 9 (pulse mode) or mode 10 (raw mode). For mode 9 each channel (corresponding to a fibre in SciFi) has out-put variables in the root tree corresponding to the fadc amplitude, fadc amplitude-ped-subtracted and fadc amplitude corrected.
