  Factors which contribute to ambient temperature sensitivity in the TRIUMF cyclotron RF control system are examined and characterized. Seasonal temperature variations together with air conditioning system limitations can give rise to unwanted temperature variations in the rack space housing the control system. If these are large enough, they can cause excursions in the cyclotron accelerating voltage. The critical components responsible are characterized and some possible remedies outlined.
