CAT Chat Minutes


Operations, Mark Beno

Beno announced that all had gone well until the weekend. Then there was a communication problem that lasted .54 hours and a high voltage problem that lasted 6.14 hours. There were also a couple of lost beamtime events. The first was at 17-ID which was down for 25 minutes from a PSS surge. The other was 9-ID which was down for 450 minutes from an encoder glitch.

A discussion followed about improving the announcement procedures when beam is lost.

Safety, Tom Barkalow

Barkalow informed everyone that a gentleman from the Board of Governors Safety Committee will be touring APS tomorrow. He is interested in talking to people who are working on the floor. Elroy Chang and Paul Rossi will accompany him.

Next Meeting: Monday, October 26, 2009
