nullQuote:

I'm looking for an ether net based  power switch for turning lights on and off for the vacuum system from MEDM screen.  This is what I found

Jamie please take a look at it.

 

 

 I installed 4 remote AC power on/off strip at

1Y1   for the Vertex area 4 chamber illuminating lights ( CIL )

1Y3   for HV ps for PZT steering mirrors that should be interlocked with P1 pressure gauge. Power off above 3 mTorr

1Y4   for  ETMY CILs,

1X9   for ETMX CILs

I need one volunteer to help me to make MEDM screen and connect the network to the switches.

Goal of this week :  ALS on the Y arm

Minimum success : Detection of the green beatnote between the freq-doubled PSL and the Y arm transmitted light

  5885   Mon Nov 14 11:32:02 2011 kiwamuSummaryGeneralGoal this week

Goal of this week : Noise budgeting on the Y arm ALS

Minimum success : bring the Y arm to the resonance by using ALS  NOISE BUDGETING!!!

 => as a preparation the incident beam pointing needs to be fixed by steering the MC suspensions.

  5963   Sun Nov 20 14:48:55 2011 kiwamuUpdateGeneralrecovery from the power shutdown

Recovery from the power shutdown

 - Turned on the raid disk of linux1.

 - Woke linux1 up. No fsck this time.

 - Woke up all the lab machines.

 - Turned on all the electronics racks' AC powers

 - Woke up fb and then front end machine (the raid for fb had been already up as I turned on the AC powers)

 - Turned on all the electronics racks' DC powers (Sorensens, Kepcos, and etc.)

 - Turned on the Marcnois which is driving the RF generation box.

 - Woke up all the lasers (PSL and End lasers)

 - Some burtrestoring (c1ioo, c1sus, c1susaux, c1msc, c1psl, c1iool0, c1auxey, c1auxex, c1oaf, c1pem)

 - Ran autolockMC scripts on op340m => After relocking of PMC a lock of MC was acquired immediately.

 - Turned on the PZT HV drivers.

 

Some issues

 - One of the Sorensens in 1X8 rack is showing the current limit sign. This is exactly the same situation as we saw before (#5592).

       Currently it's off. It needs an investigation to find who is drawing such a large amount of current.

 - C1SCX is not properly running. Rebooting the machine didn't help. This needs to be fixed.

       The symptom is : (1) all the values are frozen in the screens. (2) the c1scx status screens shows NO SYNC sign. (3) however the timing board looks blinking happily.

 - One of the VME rack on 1X3 is not showing the +/-15V green LED lights.

   This is the one on very upper side of the rack, which contains the old c1lsc machine and c1iscaux2. If we are still using c1iscaux2, it needs to be fixed.

  5989   Wed Nov 23 16:48:39 2011 SureshUpdateGeneralcable cleanup

[Koji Suresh]

As part of the general lab clean up we removed many unused BNC cables (long and short) from around the SP table.  We removed one very long BNC cable which was connected on one side to an PEM input and not connected on the other side near the 1X2 rack..   There were several cables from an old SURF phase camera project which were still attached to a couple of RF amps on the SP tables and running towards the 1X6 rack. 

We also removed some unused power cables  plugged into a power distribution strip near Megatron.

 

  5992   Wed Nov 23 22:58:33 2011 KojiUpdateGeneralc1iscaux2 is back (re: recovery from the power shutdown)

Keying again did not help to solve the issue. I turned off the power at the back of the crate, and turn it on again.
Then the key worked again.

c1iscaux2 is burtrestored and running fine now.

       Currently it's off. It needs an investigation to find who is drawing such a large amount of current.

 The 1X8 Sorensen's issue has been solved somehow.

 To investigate what is going on with the Sorensen in the 1X8 rack, I turned on the Sorensen.
Then this time it didn't show the current limit sign, the voltage went up to 15.0, where it is supposed to be.
Surprisingly this is exactly the same recovery process as we saw before (#5592).
  5994   Thu Nov 24 02:23:43 2011 KojiSummaryGeneralGPIB<->WIFI

GPIB<->WIFI on Agilent Network Analyzer 4395A was broken.
The connection was fixed by replacing and configuring the LINKSYS bridge.

=======

Kiwamu and I have identified that the LINKSYS bridge was guilty.

I knew that we had another one in the bathroom, I configured it.

HOW TO CONFIGURE IT

  • You need a host with 192.168.1.*.
  • Connect the host and the LINKSYS directly
  • Open http://192.168.1.226/
  • Select 40MARS and infrastructure mode
  • Register it in the MAC filter of the 40MARS (see wiki and use your head)

The new unit works fine.

I checked the malfunctioning unit and the configuration was the same as the others.

The bad one detected the existence of 40MARS during the configuration, but it does not establish
the connection in the actual use. I am afraid that something is broken or some setting is lost
during the power supply shutdown.

 I've checked foton files for small numbers. There are several other filters besides "Cheby" that are presented with small numbers. For example, "BTW0.01" in the LOCKING_Q, LOCKING_I modules,  "SeisDaytime"  in the SUP_MC3_SP_NOISE and others. The output of the commands is presented below.

  6071   Mon Dec 5 17:44:41 2011 kiwamuUpdateGeneralmy plan tonight

I am going to try handing off the ALS servo to the IR PDH servo on the Y arm and measure the noise.

 - first I need to investigate why the Y end PDH servo becomes unstable when the ALS is engaged with a high UGF.

 

(some notes)

 So far I still kept failing to increase the UGF of the ALS servo for some reason (see #6024).

Every time when I increased the UGF more then 50 Hz, the Y arm PDH lock became unlocked. It needs an explanation and a solution.

Another thing: During several trials in this evening I found the ETMY_SUSPOS_GAIN had been set to 1, so I reset it to 20, which gives us the damping Q of about 5.

 

(Temperature feedback activated)

 As planed in #6024 I have activated the temperature feedback, so that the PZT control signal is offloaded to the temperature. And it seems working fine.

Currently the gain is set to 0.03, which gives us a time constant of ~30 sec for offloading the control signal.

  6105   Mon Dec 12 11:34:40 2011 Leo SingerSummaryGeneralSome design parameters for a Stewart platform

At the suggestion of Rana and Koji, I have worked out some design parameters for a Stewart platform to be used as a vibration isolation device or as a platform for characterization of suspensions.  I have made some initial guesses about the following design requirements:

  • linear travel: 40 microns peak to peak (based on SOS design requirements in LIGO-T950011)
  • angular travel: 3 mrad peak to peak (based on SOS design requirements in LIGO-T950011)
  • payload mass: 5 kg (wild guess of mass of loaded SOS)
  • payload moment of inertia: 0.01 kg m^2 (wild guess)
  • bandwidth: 500 Hz (suggestion of Rana and Koji: ~kHz)

From these assumptions, I have worked out:

  • peak actuator force: 0.88 kN
  • minimum radius of top platform: 15 cm
  • minimum radius of bottom platform: 30 cm
  • minimum height: 26 cm

The combination of high force, high speed, and ~micron travel limits seems to point to piezoelectric actuators.  PI's model P-225.80 would meet the peak push-pull force requirement, but I have not yet determined if it would meet the bandwidth requirement.  Apparently, typical piezoelectric actuators can exert a greater push force than pull force; wonder if one could use an actuator with a smaller force range than the P-225.80 if the actuator is biased by compression.  (Is this what is meant by a "preloaded" actuator?) 

I have attached a PDF explaining how I worked out the actuator force and platform dimensions.  (I'll try to dice up this PDF and put the contents in the Wiki.)  I also have a plant model in MATLAB with which I have been playing around with control schemes, but I don't think that this is ready to show yet.

Here are some tasks that still remain to be done for this preliminary case study:

  • select sensing technologies: integrated linear encoders and/or strain meters, inertial sensing, optical levers, etc.
  • study joints: Koji and Rana suggest flexures; I need to propose the joint geometry and material
  • study internal modes of the platforms and actuators themselves
  • build noise budget

I'd like to ask for input principally on:

  • appropriateness of my design assumptions
  • piezo actuators currently in use in the lab

 Edit: I also added a Mathematica notebook with the inverse kinematics (mapping from platform state to leg lengths) of the platform.

Here is the Gantt chart we discussed in the 40m meeting today.

Based on the discussions we had, I applied a little bit of corrections on the chart but the main stream remains the same.

  6161   Tue Jan 3 17:46:38 2012 Updated Stewart platform design requirementsUpdateGeneralUpdated design requirements for a Stewart platform

I updated the design requirements for the Stewart platform.  I weighed the unloaded "dirty" SOS that was sitting on the workbench in the control room; its mass is 11 kg.  Steve suggested that the OSEMs (not installed on this model) would add another 0.5 kg.  From the specs in the final SOS design document, LIGO-T970135, I added 0.25 kg for the optic itself; I am therefore taking the total payload mass to be 11.75 kg.  (Now, the upper stage of the Stewart platform itself will likely add a nontrivial amount, but I am not worrying about this yet.)

I have e-mailed Janeen Romie to obtain the actual center of mass and principal moments of inertia of the platform.  I also cooked up a simple scheme to measure both quantities, should this information not be available.  It would involve rigidly mounting the dirty SOS to a rigid bar hung from a pivot.  By translating the mount point in two dimensions and measuring the period of the pendulum, I ought to be able to find the center of mass and moments of inertia by multilinear regression.  However, this elaborate scheme is not necessary to just compute some ballpark figures; it could wait until a later stage in the design.  For the time being, I just rescaled the moment of inertia proportional to the increase in mass, such that the torque-to-force ratio is unchanged.

As such, the design requirements are now 

  • linear travel: 40 microns peak to peak (based on SOS design requirements in LIGO-T950011)
  • angular travel: 3 mrad peak to peak (based on SOS design requirements in LIGO-T950011)
  • payload mass: 11.75 kg (measured unloaded mass, plus educated guesses about combined mass of OSEMs and optic)
  • payload moment of inertia: 0.0232 kg m^2 (wild guess)
  • bandwidth: 500 Hz (suggestion of Rana and Koji: ~kHz)

From these assumptions, the revised actuator requirements and dimensions are:

  • peak actuator force: 2.04 kN
  • minimum radius of top platform: 15 cm
  • minimum radius of bottom platform: 30 cm
  • minimum height: 26 cm

See the attached PDF document.

It appears that the actuator that I had originally nominated, PI's model P-225.80, would very nearly meet the actuator force requirement.  Steve also pointed out the following single-axis shakers that are already in use in the 40m:

  • Brüel & Kjær type 4809
  • Brüel & Kjær type 4810

I want to find out if either of these would meet the present need, but I'm waiting on a response from the manufacturer to get access to the data sheets.

 

  6163   Tue Jan 3 20:42:05 2012 Leo SingerUpdateGeneralActuators for Stewart platform

 I checked on the two single-axis shakers that are present at the 40m that Steve pointed out:

  • Brüel & Kjær type 4809, rated for 45 N peak, and
  • Brüel & Kjær type 4810, rated for 10 N peak.

Neither of these meet the force requirement of 2.04 kN peak.

 Time to lower your expectations!

Do we really need 40 microns at 500 Hz? Or perhaps should there be a frequency dependent displacement requirement?

 For ITMX, I used the values from the conlog:

2011/08/12,20:10:12 utc 'C1:SUS[-_]ITMX[-_]INMATRIX'
These are the latest values in the conlog that aren't the basic matricies.  Even though we did a round of diagonalization in Sept, and the 
matricies are saved in a .mat file, it doesn't look like we used the ITMX matrix from that time.

For PRM, I used the matricies that were saved in InputMatricies_16Sept2011.mat, in the peakFit folder, since I couldn't find anything in the Conlog other than the basic matricies.

 

UPDATE:  I didn't actually count the number of oscillations until the optics were damped, so I don't have an actual number for the Q, but I feel good about the damping, after having kicked POS of both ITMX and PRM and watching the sensors.

 The REFL165 RF output was not reaching the Demod board.  The RF cable was disconnected.  I fixed that and then I put in a RF signal at 165MHz , 1.66 mVrms at the test input  (100Hz off set from the 165MHz LO) and saw that the 100 Hz demodulated signal was visible in the dataviewer.

  6521   Wed Apr 11 17:56:26 2012 JenneUpdateGeneralSummary of things to figure out with the IFO

Questions:

Power recycling gain

   * It should be ~40, but we observe/measure it to be ~7.  Even if mode matching of ~50% is assumed, gain is calculated to be ~15

   * Would like to measure PR gain independent of mode matching, if possible

Power recycling cavity mode matching

   * Reflectivity of PRMI was measured to be ~50%.  That's pretty high.  What's going on?

   * Even if we're mode matched to the arm, are we appropriately mode matched to the PRC?

Is beam from MC clipped in the Faraday?

   * We had to use MC axis for input pointing since PZTs aren't totally working.

   * Need to measure IPPOS beam for different MC alignments to see if horizontal waist measurement stays constant.

PRM flipped?

   * Not likely, but it can't hurt to confirm for sure.

   * Want to know, since it could give us a different plan for MMT moving than if the PRM is correct.

Thick optic non-normal incidence in IPPO - does this exaggerate astigmatism, which would help explain IPPOS measurement?

Is PRC waist same size / position as arm cavity waist, given the current "known" positions of all the optics?

   * How is this effected by moving the PRM?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Measurements to take and what information they give us:

IPPOS beam scan, with MC as-is

   * Confirm (or not) IPPOS measurements from last week

IPPOS beam scan with different MC alignments

   * Will tell us about Faraday clipping, if any

AS beam scan, misaligned PRM, misaligned SRM, misaligned ITMX, single bounce from ITMY

   * Can only take this measurement if beam is bright enough, so we'll just have to try

   * Will confirm IPPOS measurement, but includes going through the thick PRM, so can compare to calculated intra-PRC mode

REFL beam scan (already done....is the data satisfactory? If so, no need to redo), single bounce off of PRM

   * Will tell us about the potential PRM flipping

   * Need to compare with calculated mode at REFL port for flipped or non-flipped PRM

Look at POP camera, see 2nd pass through cavity

   * Try to match 1st and 2nd pass.  If they don't match, we're not well matched to PRC mode

Look at beam directly on ETMY cage, then beam from ETM, bounce off ITM, back to ETM cage

   * If the beams are the same size, we're well matched to arm cavity mode

   * Use fancy new frame-grabber.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

MMT code things to calculate, and what information it gives us:

REFL beam path, for PRM flipping comparison

Thick IPPO non-normal incidence - I'm not sure how to do this yet, since I only know how non-normal incidence changes effective radii of curvature, and this is a flat optic, so *cos(theta) or /cos(theta)  won't do anything to an infinite RoC

Compare PRC waist to arm cavity waist, using "known" optic positions

Mode matching sensitivity to MC waist measurements

Mode matching sensitivity to PRM position

  6542   Wed Apr 18 08:53:50 2012 JamieUpdateGeneralPower outage last night

Apparently there was a catastrophic power failure last night.  Bob says it took out power in most of Pasadena.

Bob checked the vacuum system when he got in first thing this morning and everything's back up and checks out.  The laster is still off and most of the front-end computers did not recover.

I'm going to start a boot fest now.  I'll be able to report more once everything is back on.

  6543   Wed Apr 18 10:05:40 2012 JamieUpdateGeneralPower outage last night

All of the front-ends are back up and I've been able to recover local control of all of the opitcs (snapshots from saturday). Issues:

  • I can't lock the PMC.  Still unclear why.
  • there are no oplev signals in MC1, MC2, and MC3
  • Something is wrong with PRM.  He is very noisy.  Turning on his oplev servo makes him go crazy.
  • There are all sorts of problems with the oplevs in general.  Many of the optics have no oplev settings.  This is probably not related to the power outage.

On a brighter note, ETMX is damped with it's new RCG 2.5 controller!  yay!

 None of the 3 MC optics have oplevs, so there shouldn't be any oplev signals. Although MC2 has the trans QPD, which was once (still is??) going through the MC2 oplev signal path.

PRM was noisy last week too.  But turning on his oplev shouldn't make him crazy. That's not so good. Try restoring PRM (the ! near the PRM label on the IFO align screen), then checking if his oplev is ~centered.  Maybe PRM wasn't in the nominal position at the time you restored from.

 Duh.  Unawake brain.  The MCs look fine.

The MC2 Oplev signal path has been modified in the c1mcs model.  The ADC channels have been sent over the rfm into c1ioo model and are currently used in the WFS servo loops.  Please see this elog 5397.

 I had a look-see at ITMX's oplev.  I can't see any clipping, so maybe the power is just low?  One thing that was funny though is the beam coming directly from the laser.  There is the main, regular beam, and then there is a thin horizontal line of red light also coming straight out of the laser.  I don't know what to do about that, except perhaps put an iris right after the HeNe, to block the horizontal part?  I'm not sure that it's doing anything bad to the optic though, since the horizontal part gets clipped by other optics before the beam enters the vacuum, so there is no real irregularity on the beam incident on the QPD.

I realigned the oplev on the QPD, using last night's ITMX alignment + whatever drift it picked up over night, so it may need re-recentering after Xarm is nicely aligned.

  6621   Tue May 8 03:38:28 2012 JenneUpdateGeneralMEDM svn emergency!!!

We officially are *failures* at svn-ing our scripts and screens.  This is NOT OKAY.  I checked in a few things, since there were already folders on the svn, but many things don't have folders created.  It's a hot mess.  We need to get our shit together, and become as disciplined about MEDM and scripts as we have been (under Jamie's watchful eye) of the simulink models.

I'm not going to start fixing it all right now.  It might not even happen at this point until after GWADW, but it needs to happen.

 [Koji, Suresh]

  We tried to locate the sixteen analog output channels we need to control the four tip-tilts (four coils on each).  We have only 8 available channels on the C1SUS machine. 

  So we will have to plug-in a new DAC output card on one of the machines and it would be logical to do that on the C1IOO machine as the active tip-tilts are conceptually part of the IOO sub-system.   We have to procure this card if we do not already have it.  We have to make an interface between this card output and a front panel on the 1X2 rack.  We may have to move some of the sub-racks on the 1X2 rack to accommodate this front panel.

  We checked out the availability of cards (De-whitening, Anti-imaging, SOS coil drivers)  yesterday.  In summary: we have all the cards we need (and some spares too).  As the De-whitening and Anti-imaging cards each have 8 channels, we need only two of each to address the sixteen channels.  And we need four of the SOS coil drivers, one for each tip-tilt.  There are 9 slots available on the C1IOO satellite expansion chassis (1X1 rack), where these eight cards could be accommodated.

  There are two 25 pin feed-thoughs, where the PZT drive signals currently enter the BS chamber.  We will have to route the SOS coil driver outputs to these two feed-throughs. 

   Inside the BS chamber, there are cables which carry the PZT signals from the chamber wall to the the table top, where they are anchored to a post (L- bracket).  We need a 25-pin-to-25-pin cable (~2m length) to go from the post to the tip-tilt (one for each tip-tilt).  And then, of course, we need quadrapus cables (requested from Rich) which fit inside each tip-tilt to go to the BOSEMs.

   I am summarising it all here to give an overview of the work involved.
