PMC and the GigE Camera
The PMC transmission video camera has been removed and replaced with the GigE GC750 camera for the moment.
A ND4.0 filter has been added in the path to that camera to reduce saturation for the moment.
The old camera has been placed on the elevated section inside the enclosure, and the cable for it is still on the table proper.
The Gige camera is currently running the Snap code on Linux3 with the following command line:
./Snap -E 2000 -l 60 -m 1440 -f './pmc_trans/pmc_trans'
So its going to be taking tiff images every minute for the next 24 hours into the cvs/cds/caltech/target/Prosilica/40mCode/pmc_trans/ directory.
Attached is an example image with exposure set to 2000, loaded into matlab and plotted with the surf command. 2500 microseconds looked like it was still saturating, but this seems to be a good level (with a max of 58560 out of 65535).
