Error Condition from 800 Monitor Magnet Station

probably power failure or computer crash

All Dark

light switch inoperable & no emergency lights in magnet room

Problem:
  • Critical - power is out and no emergency power
Resolution:
  • disable alarm on magnet station by turning key on magnet station to DISABLE
  • get generator and hook up vacuum pumps for 800 (see details below)


Partial Lights

light switch inoperable but emergency lights in magnet room on

Problem:
  • Not critical - power is out but UAH emergency power is powering vacuum pumps.
Resolution:
  • disable alarm on magnet station if alarm is blarring
  • verify that vacuum pump is running and pressure at about 22 (or decreasing to 22)
  • wait for normal power before starting everything back up.

All Lights Operable

power is OK, probably monitor station computer crashed

Possible Problem 1:
  • Not critical - Computer crashed
Resolution:
  • Reboot CPU on magnet station.
  • The power button is the black momentary toggle at bottom/left behind the glass shield.
  • Reset is the red push-button.
  • NOTE: alarm condition must be fixed and alarm key turned back to ENABLE position before enabling the software alarm on the cpu.

Possible Problem 2:
  • Not Critical - power failure occurred but power now back on
Resolution:
  • Reboot CPU if necessary.
  • May need to power up consoles and Linux boxes.

Possible Problem 3:
  • Critical - Magnet temperature/pressure out-of-range
  • check magnet temperatures and pressure on monitor station
Resolution:
  • If temperature/pressure is out-of-range and getting worse, call Varian
  • say a prayer


Magnet Monitor Station


Disable Alarm

turn key on front of magnet station (about waist high) to DISABLE. After cause of alarm has been fixed, turn back to ENABLE.

Causes for Alarm


1) computer failure (laptop installed on monitor station)
  • Check cpu and reboot if necessary.
  • The power button is the black momentary toggle at bottom/left behind the glass shield.
  • Reset is the red push-button.
  • NOTE: alarm condition must be fixed and alarm key turned back to ENABLE position before enabling the software alarm on the cpu.

2) power failure
  • If the UAH emergency generator power is not working, hook up our portable generator (see below).

3) magnet pressure/temperature out of range
  • If no apparent reason for out-or-range values, call Varian
  • Good luck.

Generator:

If generator is already in NMR room, skip step #1.
1) Get key for MSB 122 off the sink countertop, get the bicycle tire pump from pump room, get flashlight, and go to room MSB 122 (use center hallway).
2) Pump up tires on generator if necessary and wheel thru nmr pump room to cement area outside of pump room.
3) Get gas can from hood in MSB 300 and fill generator.
4) Attach 3-prong power cable coming from wall next to gas cylinders to generator, and plug pump system into corresponding receptacle so pumps can run off generator.
5) Start up generator as follows:
a) Open fuel valve under gas tank on right-hand-side (while standing behind the
generator).
b) While standing in front of generator, turn switch on right side of motor to ON.
c) On carburetor at left of motor, open gas valve by sliding handle to right.
d) Activate carburetor choke by sliding choke handle to left.
e) Pull starter rope.
f) As motor warms-up, turn off choke by sliding handle to right.
