Detector at ISAC West Target Station

— filed under: ,

Date: March 27, 2001

The Safety System Group has installed a residual radiation G-M detector over the ITW target station beneath the movable buildings blocks that wormaly cover the area. A cable has been run from the detector through the B2 Electrical Room. Unfortunately there is no way to read back radiation levels from the detector in a true remote mode (through a controls system) but is is possible to simply connect a portable Ludlum 14C survey meter to the detector via a labeleed connector in Rack 3A, patch panel IB1-P3.

The detector installed in ITW is of the same type used in the 14C, and any readings take from the portable survey metershould correspond to the actual residual levels in the area over the target.

Readings should not be taken when beam is 'on'.
