Remote Progress Report

The new Remote program was recently tested by the Ealick lab at Cornell. A typical 22 hour shift was completed with only minor bugs. Of great benefit was the feedback from the remote users, which will be used to improve the interface before rollout in Run2 2012.Remote access for 24ID-E will be available for Run 2 of 2012.

Status Updates

EIGER2 X Detector Repairs

At the start up of operations for the 2021-2 run, it was discovered that one of the cards which aggregates data from multiple modules in the EIGER2 detector on 24-ID-C was faulty.  As a result, NE-CAT was forced to reschedule all users on 24-ID-C for the first week of user operations.  However, Dectris was able to immediately send us a replacement part which was successfully installed by Ed Lynch, Jim Withrow, and Malcolm Capel.  Replacing the card did require removal of the EIGER2 from the 24-ID-C A-frame and its subsequent re-installation.

APS 'Dark' Period Rescheduled

At the Plenary Session for the APS/CNM User Meeting, it was announced that the storage ring installation period of the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade project is now scheduled to begin April 17, 2023.  NE-CAT and the APS will be 'dark' for 1 year following this date.
