Water Resistor

The water resistor is made up from a number of plastic tubes, running from the Preaccelerator pit wall along the column and to the dome. They are used to control the potential drop among the column electrodes. The resistance of the tubes is controlled by LCW flowing through them. This resistance also has an effect on the current drawn by the Haefely power supply.
