Abstract:

Due to its advantages in large-area application situations, the R&D of the resistive plate chamber (RPC) has always been carried out. A performance test station for RPC R&D has been designed and developed based on the VME bus and ROOT in Linux. This system can be customized expediently according to the requirements of different tests, which facilitates detector R&D because of its automatic HV scan, especially for long-term test. With this system, we have implemented the RPC performance test, including the efficiency curve, counting rate, dark current and charge and timing resolution.

Key words: Resistive plate chamber, VME, ROOT, R&D, Test station
