I did a walkaround and checked the status of all the interlock switches I could find based on the SOP and interlock wiring diagram, but the PSL remains interlocked. I don't want to futz around with AC power lines so I will wait for Koji before debugging further. All the "Danger" signs at the VEA entry points aren't on, suggesting to me that the problem lies pretty far upstream in the wiring, possibly at the AC line input? The Red lights around the PSL enclosure, which are supposed to signal if the enclosure doors are not properly closed, also do not turn on, supporting this hypothesis...

I confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the laser itself - i manually shorted the interlock pins on the rear of the controller and the laser turned on fine, but I am not comfortable operating in this hacky way so I have restored the interlock connections until we decide the next course of action...

The PSL (Edwin) remains in an interlock-triggered state. We are not sure what is causing this, but the laser cannot be powered on until this is resolved.
