Hi everybody,
I thought that it makes sense to open up a thread where we post updates on the material status, e.g. what types of padplanes are available etc. Also questions to the status should maybe be posted here, since it gets distributed, some stuff is at Heidelberg, Radiators are at Muenster, and some tooling and material like glue are at GSI.

So to start (for those who do not know yet):

-L2C0 Padplanes arrived ~mid march, are at Frankfurt for soldering right now.
-L6C1 padplanes arrived at CERN last Friday and are on their way to Hd.

-C0 type (for Dubna):
about 6 pieces are ready (which are not built into chambers at Hd), more will come soon.
-L5/6C1: possibly 18 pieces available soon. So I think we would send 4-5 chmabers worth to Bukarest, and kee some for Hd.

Front profiles:
-L1: 21 pc.
-L2: 16 pc.
-L6: 18 pc.

So much for now.

Dear all,
Peter Glaessel was so kind to provide a database, to keep an inventory of all parts of the TRD (especially the important ones with numbers, e.g. Radiators, Backpanels, Padplanes etc.).
This database should also be used to keep track of where the parts are going, e.g. a Radiator is shipped from Muenster to GSI, then to Dubna. This requires that it is sent off, and received. Therefore we will be able to know where everything is at any point in time (which becomes more and more important as we get more an more material).

The database is located at:
it is accessed with a web browser. There is a name and password required to log in (more to prevent unauthorised modifications of the data, than to prevent peaple from viewing).
I suggest that for each production site there is one responsible person who takes over the job of entering information. I would think it should be the same people that Harry suggested as responsible for checking this Forum on a regular basis, that should be responsible for keeping the material status up to date. In any case every action (i.e. entry or change) in the DB will be recorded with the name who is logged in and making those changes.
Detailed instructions on how to use the DB are supplied when you log in under the "Explanations" link at the top of the page.

For passwords please contact Peter (
