Vent prep

Following the checklist, I did these:

  • Both arms were locked to IR, TRY and TRX maximized using ASS.
  • GTRY and GTRX were also maximized.
  • ITM/ETM Oplevs centered with TRX/TRY maximized, PRM/SRM/BS Opelvs were centered once the DRMI was locked and aligned.
  • Attachment #1 summarizes the above 3 bullets.
  • Sensoray was made to work with Donatella (Raspberry Pi video server idea is good but although the sensoray drivers look to have installed correctly, when the Sensoray unit is plugged into the RPi USB port, the red light doesn't come on, so I opted to not spend too much time on it for the moment).
  • Photos of all ports in various locked configurations are saved in /users/sensoray/SensorayCaptures/Nov2018Vent
  • PSL power into the IMC was cut from 1.07 W (measured after G&H mirror) to 97 mW. I opted to install a new HWP+PBS after the PMC to cut the power, so we don't have to fiddle around so much with the PMC locking settings [Attachment #3, this was the only real candidate location as the IMC wants s-polarized light].
  • 2" R=10% BS in the IMC REFL path was replaced with a 2" Y1 HR mirror, so there is no MCREFL till we turn the power back up.
  • IMC was locked.
  • Low power MC autolocker works [Attachment #2]. The reduction in MCREFL is because of me manually aligning the cavity, WFS servos are disabled in low power mode since there is no light incident on the WFS heads.
  • Updated the SUS driftmon values (though I'm not really sure how useful this is).
  • PSL shutter will remain closed, but I have not yet installed a manual beam block in the beam path on the PSL table.

@Steve & Chub, we are ready to vent tomorrow (Monday Nov 19).
