Based on the

File:HCO - ENP Target Hall D Shutdown Checklist.pdf


  1. Ensure that both H2 tanks are valved off
  2. Turn off the turbo station that is pumping on the OVC
  3. Turn off the pulse tube compressor and kill power at the service disconnect


Intention is to keep magnet full and cold at 4k

  1. Solenoid is powered down
  2. Cryogenics is secured for the shutdown.


  1. Thin window guards
    1. Tagger window shutter lowered
    2. Reinstalled in Collimator Cave
    3. Reinstalled on Pair Spectrometer
    4. Reinstall on FCAL beampipe
  2. Vacuum (Valves closed and pumps off)
    1. Goniometer pump ON/OFF
    2. Tagger pump OFF
    3. Beam line valve VBV5H00 closed (and disconnected)
    4. Beam line pump from Tagger to Collimator Cave OFF
    5. Collimator Cave beam line under vacuum?
    6. Valve VBV5H03 CLOSED
    7. Pair Spectrometer pump OFF
    8. Solenoid and distribution box pumps OFF
    9. FCAL platform beam pipe vacuum status VACUUM/ATMOSPHERE?
  3. Cooling
    1. Fan on microscope ON/OFF
    2. BCAL Chillers OFF (drain and flush with nitrogen?)
    3. FDC Chiller OFF
    4. Blower CDC OFF
  4. Drift Chamber gas
    1. Lower gas flow
    2. Bypass alcohol bubbler
  5. Turn off Tagger NMR probe
  6. Make a log entry with status of windows, vacuum and cooling
  7. Ramp down Solenoid, Turn off Solenoid Power Supply and stop recording PXI data
  8. Ramp down pair spec magnet, turn off power supply.
  9. Ramp down sweep magnet, turn off power supply.
  10. Record status of this checklist into Logbook (HDLOG)


Retract devices, Computers ON, DAQ Crates OFF, control crates ON

  1. Secure for shutdown
    1. Radiators retracted
    2. Profile monitor retracted
    3. Collimator in blocked position
    4. TPOL converter retracted
    5. PS convertor retracted
    6. COMPCAL retracted
    7. TAC retracted
  2. Magnet power supplies OFF
    1. Tagger (controlled by accelerator)
    2. Sweep
    3. PS
    4. Solenoid
  3. Detector Power Status: ON / OFF
  4. BCAL (LV, bias)
  5. CDC (HV, LV)
  6. DIRC (Would prefer to keep full and flowing.)
  7. FCAL. [Note: Usually the Anagate supplies are left ON. But to turn off, first hit the crash button near the door, then power off the connection boxes (on the back) and the power strip on the front.]
  8. CCAL
  9. FDC (HV, LV)
  10. PS, PSC
  11. TAGH
  12. TAGM
  13. TOF
  14. ST (Bias, LV)
  15. Beam line Voltages (Active Target, TAC, halo)
  16. TPOL
  17. Keep Power ON
    1. All computers, switches, control modules
    2. Accelerator crates (US1-1, US1-2)
  18. Crate Power OFF
    1. DAQ crates: VXS, VME Hall D
    2. DAQ crates: VXS, VME Tagger building
  19. Record status in the Log book.
