Subject: vacuum normal is reached 



 Pumpdown completed. IR shutter opened at P1 1 mTorr  The block is still in the beam path.

Remember to protect MCR pd before crack up the PSL power.

The ion pump gate valves were just closed by cc1 triggered interlock

The cry pump was "regenerated" during the vent and it's outgassing rate minimized.

CC3 cold cathode gauge was replaced.


Valve configuration for week end:

1, VA6 disconnected to avoid accidental venting the IFO through the annulos

2, VC2 disconnected to insure that the cryo stays closed

3, RGA is not running, It's pressure limit 1e-5 Torr


 Valve configuration:       Vacuum Normal    is reached in really 4 days if we do not count overnight rest of roughing.

 VA6 and VC2 are reconnected. I'm turning on the RGA next


 All 4 ion pumps were vented with air and pumped down to ~ 1e-4 Torr

 Ion pumps gate valve control cables are connected and their pumps are disconnected.


 The black relay box was tested repeatedly and it stopped misbehaiving.

We were at atmosphere for 13 days.  Chamber BS, ITMX, ITMY and ETMY were opened.

Al foil "cups" were placed on the back side OSEMs of PRM.
