MC temp sensor hooked up incorrectly
MC Temperature sensor was not hooked up correctly. It turns out that for the 4 pin LEMO connections on the DAQ like J13, J14, etc. the channels correspond to horizontal pairs on the 4 pin LEMO. The connector we used for the temp sensor had vertical pairs connected to each BNC which resulted in both the differential pairs on J13 being read by the channel.
To check that a horizontal pair 4 pin LEMO2BNC connector actually worked correctly we unlocked the mode cleaner, and borrowed a connector that was hooked up to the MC servo (J8a). We applied a sine wave to each of the BNCs on the connector, checked the J13 signal and only one of the differential pairs on J13 was being read by the channel. So, horizontal pairs worked.
