Yesterday Den and Koji reported that the WFS loops were causing the MC to become unlocked. They had aligned the PMC. The input beam into the MC seems to be well aligned. MCREFL DC close to minimum it gets while MC is locked (~0.45 V).
I checked and saw that the WFS heads and the MC2_TRANS_QPD had picked up DC offsets. To reset them I turned off the MC_autolocker and closed the PSL shutter.
The ADC offsets were set using this script /cvs/cds/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/MC/WFS/WFS_QPD_offsets. (Jamie fixed the paths to ezcaservo to get this script to work)
The WFS sensor head offsets were manually set to adjust the Q and I signals from the sensor head to zero. (This operation is supposed to be done by a script which is available, but I will check it out before I direct people to it).
Then we noticed that the ASC outputs were turned off. (Presumably Koji turned them off yesterday, when the MC was repeatedly unlocking due to the WFS loops).
We turned on the ASC outputs and the MC stayed locked with reasonable outputs on the WFS output channels. (+/-100)
However, engaging the WFS servo increases the MCREFL DC signal to 0.7 V from the 0.45 V value when the servo is not engaged. This could be because of DC offsets in the WFS servo filters. I will adjust these offsets to maintain good MC transmission when the WFS servo is engaged.
