This is the two arms locked, for an hour.  No integrator in either loop, but from this it looks like ETMY may have a bigger length2angle problem than ETMX.  I'll put some true integrators in the loops and do this again.

 

 

 There appear to be at least two independent problems: the coil balancing for ETMY is bad, and something about ITMX is broken (maybe a coil driver). 

The Y-arm becomes significantly misaligned during long locks, causing the arm power to drop.  This misalignment tracks directly with the DC drive on ETMY.  Power returns to the maximum after breaking and re-establishing lock.

ITMX alignment wanders around sporadically, as indicated by the oplevs and the X-arm transmitted power.  Power returns to previous value (not max) after breaking and re-establishing lock.

Both loops have integrators.
