Description

The Multiwire Proportional Chamber Tracking System at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility has been upgraded. Improvements include a renovation of the chambers themselves to vastly improve noise on the signals. An extensive study was done to find the most efficient gas for operation, and a completely new electronics read-out system has been created to improve reliability, and system compatibility. Users can now have an ASCII file for each run to merge into their DAQ system, and an event display.
