  • Updates
    • HCAL
      • All cable trays installed
      • Started cabling
    • Bigbite shower
      • replaced FADC, second one given to Bill Gunning
      • Jessee set up cable tray on blue racks, ready to start cabling. Bringing cable on side and will lift cables
      • All FADC cables plugged, cabling trigger cables now ( will ask help from Mark )
      • BNC cables FE bunker left and BB shower preshower to FE, Jessee working on alignement will cable when he is done, will start cable to bunker
      • HV :
      • Scalers : 2 scalers from Bob, need to install in hodoscope crate or in scaler crates
      • Cosmics counters : in EEL 122 ready to be moved to Hall A - 1 paddle on top of BB - need find a way to secure on - 2nd paddle on floor - need to figure out how to work
    • BB Hodoscope
      • software work : comparing new software with older code - looks ok
      • not started cabling yet : need training, will start on Monday
    • GRINCH
      • finished scripts to be used to monitor during run - ADC calibration script and event display -
      • cabling out from basket, BNC cables shared with hodoscope - might need to take everything out - TDC conduits can be installed - path need to be refined depending where repeater rack is going
      • when cardboard can be removed ? Bradley will check with Jessee
    • LHRS
      • Maria finished cabling for A1, will check with the DAQ
      • 8 or 9 FADCs deployed
    • CDet
      • issues with HV crate, working now
      • taking data right now
      • when computer crash - HV setting get lost - might consider switching to Lecroy HV
      • need 4x4 MAPMT spares - might need to order new ones - using PMTs from last module
    • Bigbite GEM
      • connected GEMS to MPPs
      • run fiber to bunker a bit short
      • will start reading out with SSP
      • might reposition the rack
      • move computers in Hall ? Need a table ( will check Jack )
      • SSP setup in INFN : not working yet but in progress
      • VTP readout : Bryan finishing up adding ROC to VTP for VTP readout of MPD - working on library to VTP, just need to combine read-out - can configre MPD and APV through VTP - still need work on readout - ~ 1 week
    • UVA GEMs
      • SBS side XY : 2 out of 40 chambers shielded - 2 more students helping
      • BB side : XY layer cabled in Hall A, Sean working on DAQ.
      • 3 slots - Paolo found issue with some line - not terminated properly - , add two termination resistors near connector - send schematics - possibility to get a new a set of backplane
      • MPDs order in : FPGA are delay but we have - 1 oscillator part -
      • APVs ?
      • GEM installation : crane going away August 8 or 9th, trying to see how manny layers can be ready and instrumented
      • SBS GEMs might be hold
      • any help useful : email Holly if you can help
      • GEM will be in Hall and need to decide how to install
    • Helicity
      • still working in test lab
      • no scaler helicity class in Podd, looking at fastest way to integrate in Podd ( hcana has one ? Steve )
      • old TG0Helicity class based on ADC
      • need to check with Brad and Alex, with channels would go in scalers
    • Beamline
      • met with Don Jones and Cameron, revive alarm handler for beamline
      • new Hall A website live, if anything missing check with David
  • On-going tasks
    • Network setup
    • Scaler crate setup
    • 3 rd GEM VXS crate install router moved up ( done )
    • detector accounts setup
    • boot VME controllers
    • detector cabling
    • new MPD production - check with Paolo
    • MPD VTP readout
    • Bigbite - HCal trigger setup
    • TS setup
    • Beamline crate setup
    • HCAL cabling
    • Mark hodoscope trigger
  • Outstanding issues
    • 2 bad FADCs Bigbite - 1 FADC was repaired - one being repaired - 1 Compton FADC
    • SD delay :
    • need to adjust for HCAL transit time with different PMTs
    • status of cosmics paddles
    • GEM fibers too short : will order 60 m ones
