Primer for Shift Takers

This document is an aid to fill the online version of the Check-list required in every shift at the Hall D Counting House. The entries can be found through different ways, one of those is presented here to provide an easy access to the information.
Additional information can be found under Shift Checklist.

How to use this guide

This guide follows the Shifters' Checklist structure and is separated in 5 columns:

  • Reference Number
  • Item: according to the Checklist.
  • Main Action Bar on EPICS: which indicates the Slow Control path to find the Item's current value.
  • Sample Figure: which show a general image of the screen and an specific one.
  • Information for Shift Takers: which shows the links to learn more about those systems.
