Abstract

A slow control system for the Aerogel Ring Imaging Cherenkov (ARICH) counter in the Belle II experiment was newly developed based on the development framework of the Belle II DAQ software. The ARICH detects Cherenkov photons by using Hybrid Avalanche Photo Detectors (HAPDs). Each HAPD has 144 pixels to be readout and requires 6 power supply (PS) channels, therefore a total of 2520 PS channels and 60480 pixels have to be configured and controlled. Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) are also implemented to ease the detector operation. The slow control system was used in an integration test with cosmic rays and we confirmed it works in practical operation.
