Subject: Ethernet Illuminator Control 



 The ethernet power strips have been installed. is on ETMX, is on ETMY and is on the vertex. I have also written an EPICS file "illuminator_control.adl" (currently stored in my named directory) that allows a user to turn individual sockets on and off at each of the three locations. Some short tests have indicated that everything is in working order.

Currently, no illuminators are hooked up to the power strips. However, the power control will most likely be ready for use tomorrow, granted I can find and use extension cords so that the illuminators might reach their respective power strips.

 I'm sure Charles meant to also say that he connected the ETM power strips to the ethernet switches in those racks.  For the vertex, the ethernet switch is in 1X2, but there isn't space in there, so the power switch was installed in 1Y2.  The vertex ethernet cable is along the overhead inside cable tray.

I'm not sure what we want to do about connecting the new power strips to the illuminators.  No illuminator is close enough that its built-in cable can reach the power strip, so we'll need extension cables or some such.  Charles is going to ask Steve about the plan tomorrow.
