Tuning Tips

ISAC Front-End and Low Energy Beam Transport Tuning
Friedhelm's presentation (February 11, 2011)
Tuning -- Front-End to IMS:FC34.
Tuning strategies put together from tuning experience with the help of Mike Trinczek and Friedhelm Ames, edited by Mike and Friedhelm. Final version has been approved by Mike and Friedhelm. -- RT Emittance manipulation guidance provided by Rick & transcribed by TA.

Experiment - Trinat - Tuning Tips
I should have included the attached with the Beam Properties Request. Simple sketch of the ion optics under locate TRINAT control, BPM profiles from 2002, and typical transmission (JB, May 22/14). ILZ:IV6/10 not to be opened w/out John Behr's permission (ILZ:IG1 reads e-11 Torr ('good') when off). FC10A not to be tuned to w/out John Behr's permission (likely request <1enA). ILZ:FC10 expect ~66% of FC5, FC10A expect ~100% of FC5. When tuning on FC10A, John can send collimator signal to FC10.

Reseting Tank3/Buncher2/Buncher3
If you encounter problems with DTL:Tank3/Buncher2/Buncher3 (but all other cavities work correctly), try the following ... At the local RF console (north mezzanine, west console): 1) Close and then re-open the following RF control programs: buncher2, buncher3, dtl3, auxx1, and auxx2 (auxx1/2 are labelled "AUX Control Server V7.03" in the task bar). 2) Try starting the cavities. If unsuccessful, repeat step 1. If the second attempt doesn't work, reboot the RF console.
Restarting SCC3 if Tuner and Phase lock was lost.
Instructions given by V. Zvyagintsev on how to restore SCC3 if the Tuner and Phase lock was lost and unable to lock manually in ICR. This could potentially apply to other modules as well.
