Tracker Meeting, 27 February 2012



Agenda: minutes
  1. Actions:
    • CMacW: Valve on cryostat needs replacing after accident.
    • AD, ES: Commit to spacepoints by the end of the week.
    • ES, AD: Split out unpacking/calibration of data in a separate mapper.
    • ML, ES, OL, AD, KL: Urgent to add description of the geometry and complete the coordinate system description to the tracker s/w write up.
    • CMacW and GB: revise cryostat orientation and check light-guide routing.
    • CMacW: to inquire about standard monitoring of fire in racks.
    • CMacW: Propose present autodialer system to online group and suggest as the standard for MICE if other systems want them.
    • DA, EO: Collaborate on specification of block diagram for delay and distribution of ISIS RF and trigger.
    • ABr: Consult re spare VLPC cassettes from D0 as MICE spares.
    • DA, ABr: Make plan for implementation of DAQ in Hall.
    • KL: Prepare for review of schedules in tracker parallel.
    • KL: Make effect of magnetic fields an agenda item.
    • CMacW, PR: list all items that may be affected adversely by the magnetic field.
  2. Particle trigger relationship to ISIS clock: EO
  3. Cosmic test - status of analysis: ES
  4. Preparations for single station test and full tracker system:
