  • Cosmic Ray Observatory Project Collecting Data with CROP DAQ Card Interface Doing an Efficiency Scan 1.Disconnect the 4 signal cables from the DAQ card. These are the cables that connect to your 4 detectors. 2.Open the CROP_DAQ LabVIEW Program. 3. Click on the "Efficiency" tab make sure the Efficiency Scan button is ON(lit up). 4. Click on the "Threshold Scan" tab make sure the Threshold Scan button is OFF. 5. Click on the "Data Collection Settings" tab and set the timer ON (green button lit up). 6. Click on the "Data Acquisition" tab and to begin run click on (upper left corner under the Edit menu). http://crop.unl.edu/tutorials/ Online help and tutorials available.
