ATF Cable Policy
The Brookhaven Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) is a users' facility where
many users and experiments share the resources. One of the most valuable
resources is cables used for signals (50 ohm), video signals (75 ohm),
control cables and power supply cables. Since the number of cables installed
at the ATF is very large, it is absolutely necessary that the following
policy be observed:
- No users shall disconnect any ATF facility cables without prior
agreement with ATF operation coordinator, or ATF operator.
- All cables, including power line extension cord, must be labeled,
and installed according to standard electrical safety codes at BNL, and
registered with an ATF electronics technician.
- Any temporary cables must be removed immediately after their use.
- All users should inform the ATF user coordinator when the cables are
no longer in service.
In ATF experimental areas, the following color
scheme is to be used for Ethernet cables:
All newly-installed Ethernet cables must be rated
CAT6 or higher.
