We attached the temperature sensor box to the MC1/MC3 chamber with a C-clamp. We connected the temp sensor to a 2nd box with a short BNC. Bob set up a power cable coming from the X-end towards the MC1/MC3 chamber(Thanks, Bob!) We soldered the end of Bob's power cable to a plug and attached it to the 2nd box (The power supply enters through the 2nd box). A ~20ft BNC cable connects the output signal of the 2nd box to the tall thing by the PSL where all the signals go labeled 1Y2. Once we had everything connected, we put in the fuses for the power supply. So, now the temperature sensor is receiving power. We checked that the power supply was working (we measured +15.08V and -14.95V, and we wanted 15V and -15V so it's OK for now). Tomorrow we will modify C1IOOF.INI file and reboot the frame builder.
There is an LM34 (looks like a transistor) glued w/ epoxy and thermal paste to the inside of a Pomona box ~1"x"1.5"x2". The lid to the box is covered with a 1-2mm thick piece of copper and a little thermal paste is sandwiched between the Pomona lid and the copper piece. A C-clamp attaches the copper piece to the chamber. A BNC is connected to one side of the box (the side with less copper)
About power supply box-
There is a power regulator and an op-amp inside a Pomona box ~2.5"x4"x2". The power regulator is attached to the center of lid of the pomona box with a screw and washer. There's a power plug on the front of the box
There are 2 BNC connections on the sides of the box. The left BNC connection is for the output signal and the right BNC connection is for the temperature sensor (if the power plug is coming out of the box towards you).
Chamber which contains MC1/MC3. On the door facing towards the Y-end. On the bottom-left side. Behind the door. Attached with a C-clamp.
Power supply box location-
Chamber which contains MC1/MC3. On some metal leg thing near the floor facing towards the Y-end. Attached with a zip-tie
Coming from the X-end from a tall thing with all the fuses labeled 1X1
Fuse 160:+15V:red wire
Fuse 171:GND:white wire
Fuse 172:-15V:black wire
Going towards the PSL to the tall thing labeled 1Y1 on the rack labeled SN208
J12 (which we believe corresponds to 50-51 and channel number 13650)
Temperature sensor is connected to J12 with a ~20ft BNC attached to a BNC2LEMO connector we found lying around
