Procedure of the AC Dipole Measurements

Ryoichi Miyamoto

Last Update 10/21/2008

This note explains how to make measurements

with the Tevatron Vertical AC Dipole System

from the Main Control Room.

1 magnet setup at e17 service building
1. Magnet Setup at E17 Service Building

To be safe, go to the E17 service

building and turn off the DC

power supply used in the pinger


2 preparation of devices
2. Preparation of Devices

  • Agilent 33220A (Modulator)

    • Press Graph.

    • Press Utility and choose Output Setup. Select High Z for the Load.

    • Press Arb, and choose Selected Wform and Stored Wforms. Select a waveform whose name starts with ACD based on the ramp time (The standard is ACD_2321 which means 2k turns of ramp up and down and 3k turns of flattop.). Press Done.

    • Change Period, HiLevel, and LoLevel to 168 ms, 5 V, and 0 V for each.

    • Press Burst and make sure the number of cycles is 1. Press Trigger (in Softkeys) and change Source to Ext. Make sure the Slope is set to Positive. Press Done.

    • The output goes to AM(EXT) of SF DS345 and scope.

    • Press Output.

  • SF DS345 (Sine Wave Carrier)

    • To change frequency and amplitude, press FREQ or AMPL and input the number.

    • Notice the actual voltage is twice of the number on the display (because the input of the amplifier has high impedance).

  • I-T8000 (Amplifier)

    • Go to CH1 Sensitivity by pressing Menu/Exit once and Next twice. Make sure RMS Volts is 3.54 and dB Gain is 37.3. Press Menu/Exit.

    • It may be safe to apply attenuation when the dipole is not used.

  • Scope

    • Make sure the input impedances for all channels are 1 MΩ.

The plot shows a list of

useful AcNet parameters

to monitor, during the

AC dipole study. The

flying wires can be used

from T46.

4. AC Dipole Setup in C9-F0 LAM-11

Switch the magnet to the AC dipole mode (negative polarity, displayed as “A”).

Change the timing of T:VPNGAD to 1.191 sec. The difference between C:EVTDAX and T:VPNGAD should be 0.01−0.02 sec or 500−1000 rev.

Arm T:VPNGAD to the 4C event.

Enable T:VPNGAD.

After a study, set the parameters to the original values.

  • Set the frequency (T:DS345F) and input voltage (T:DS345A) of the waveform

  • generator. Turn down the voltage to 0.01 V after every excitations.

  • See the tables in pages 9 & 10 for the relation among the frequency,driving tune,

  • input voltage, andoscillation amplitude.

  • The voltage and frequency are adjusted by 0.01 V and 0.01 Hz. Be careful that the

  • frequency is in “Hz”, not in “kHz”.

  • No change for the parameters of the AC dipole’s ramp: T:HP332A and T:HP332F.

5 data acquisition with t42
5. Data Acquisition with T42

Reboot T42 in each measurement.

Choose the BPM’s to be used.

Note that acquiring all the BPM

data takes about 4.5 min. Just for

a testing, use a small number of


Data acquisition is done from

“Data” page.

For “Trigger Selection”, choose

“New Triggered Data Only,

No Kick”.

Make sure that the kicking is

disabled and plotting is enabled.

“Get Data” starts the acquisition.

6 data check with t42
6. Data Check with T42

After the data acquisition, T42

automatically plots TBT data.

We can change the BPM.

We can plot the TBT or tune.

We can change the axesranges.

Select “Plot” for re-plotting.

7. Data Saving with T42

BPM’s data can be saved from the

“Write” page.

I usually disable the “header” and “status” information.

My Mathematica codes read

horizontal and vertical data

separately. The unit should be


Intensity may not be necessary.

“Write” uploads text files into a

directory under

The name of the directory is

yymmdd_time, 080930_1411 in

this case.
