18-04-17: clean that fibre and SFP!

Added by Erik van der Bij on 18 Apr 2017 at 17:49

The White Rabbit team at CERN organised a short course about fibre-optic cleaning and inspection.

A special fibre inspection microscope that automatically analyses the image to decide if a cable or SFP passes or fails the norms was demonstrated.
The images of some of the often-used cables and SFP modules that we picked from the development lab, showed clearly traces of grease and dust.

The course showed undoubtedly that fibres should always be inspected and that in almost all cases they should be cleaned before plugging in.
One should not forget to inspect and clean the SFP side either!

The slides of this Fibre Cleaning and Inspection course are available via the OHWR Electronics Design project.

Thanks to Amin Shoaie from CERN's EN-EL group for making this course available.
Note that this course and the practical exercises will be repeated at CERN in the last week of April. Please contact us if you are interested.

Tutorial at ICALEPCS conference in October

Added by Erik van der Bij on 30 Mar 2017 at 13:59

The ICALEPCS organizing committee will organize a pre-conference workshop on WR in Barcelona in October.

We intend to make this more of a "WR tutorial." and we think there will be something to learn and discuss for everybody: newcomers, casual users and even experts.

Online registration will open on April 17. Registration for the workshop is independent of registration to the conference. If you register, it will be a great pleasure to see you there. Also, please send me comments on the program if you have any. We still have a bit of freedom to change it if need be.

And of course, please forward this to any other people you think could be interested!

CSN1 Spanish TV

Added by Erik van der Bij on 27 Jun 2016 at 18:37

The visit of a CERN delegation to the Universidad de Granada and to the company Seven Solutions on 24 June was presented on the news of the Andalucía regional TV station CSN1.
The most notable star in the video was the white rabbit that was silently listening to the discussion while sitting on a White Rabbit Switch.

15-12-15: Pickin’ up good vibrations in CERN Bulletin

Added by Erik van der Bij on 15 Dec 2015 at 11:50

In preparation for the civil engineering work on the HL-LHC at CERN, vibration measurements were carried out at the LHC’s Point 1 last month. These measurements help evaluate how civil engineering work could impact the beam, and will provide crucial details about the site’s geological make-up before construction begins.
Geophone sensors to measure vibrations in the ground were placed around the vibration sources at the surface, linked to the underground geophones using the LHC “White Rabbit” synchronisation network. This allowed the team to look at the effects of the vibrations at the same time.
