Control Rooms
Fermilab accelerators are in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Operators monitor and control the accelerators and more than 40,000 related devices. The computer screens display information from sensors on accelerator performance, cooling equipment and power supplies. Each experiment also has its own control room in which physicists monitor the electronic systems that collect data from particle collisions.
