Subject: Vac interlock tripped again 

After getting the go ahead from Chub and Jon, I restored the Vacuum state to "Vacuum normal", see Attachment #1. Steps:

  1. Interlock code modifications
    • Backed up /opt/target/python/interlocks/interlock_conditions.yaml to /opt/target/python/interlocks/interlock_conditions_UPS.yaml
    • The "power_loss" condition was removed for every valve and pump inside /opt/target/python/interlocks/interlock_conditions.yaml
    • The interlock service was restarted using sudo systemctl restart interlock.service
    • Looking at the status of the service, I saw that it was dying ~ every 1 second.
    • Traced this down to a problem in/opt/target/python/interlocks/interlock_conditions.yaml  when the "pump_managers" are initialized - the way this is coded up, doesn't play nice if there are no conditions specified in the yaml file. For now, I just commented this part out. The git diff  below:
  2. Restoring vacuum normal:
    • Spun up TP1, TP2 and TP3
    • Opened up foreline of TP1 to TP2, and then opened main volume to TP1
    • Opened up annulus foreline to TP3, and then opened the individual annular volumes to TP3.

So far the pressure is coming down smoothly, see Attachment #2. I'll keep an eye on it.

PSL shutter was opened at 645pm local time. IMC locked almost immediately.

Update 11pm: The pressure has reached 8.5e-6 torr without hiccup.
