This was done to prepare clean space for TIP-TILT drive- test set up.

  7160   Mon Aug 13 15:31:09 2012 steveUpdateGenerallarger optical tables at the ends

I'm proposing larger optical tables at the ends to avoid the existing overcrowding. This would allow the initial pointing and optical level beams to set up correctly.

The existing table is 4 x 2 would be replaced by 4' x 3'   We would lose only ~3" space  toward exist door.

I'm working on the new ACRYLIC TABLE COVER for each end that will cost around $4k ea.  The new cover should fit the larger table.

Let me know what you think.

The drawing of the 4' x 2'  table cover can be seen at entry  #6190 The new proposed wall #7106  The yellow acrylic would be ~ 0.25" thick and it will be the inside. It is not shown on the drawing.

Question remaining: should get a larger table 4' x 3' as outlined by red lines and make new cover to fit this

The oplev beam path needs larger incident angle to get in and out of the chamber: REMOVE BOTTLENECK for easy traffic

Moving the existing table closer to ETMY chamber - as Jamie suggested-  would help but there is no room for this solution.

The larger table solve this issue and leave more room for initial pointing, arm transmitted and future experiments.

Other benefits: no tube to make between table and chamber. It is easier to make the the larger box air tight.

The new isolation box with feed through, cover, seals will cost $4-5K ea

Quote:

The IMC has not been behaving well since this morning and totally not happy when Q was finishing his measurements. The WFS servo had large offsets in pitch. Looking back at the trend and using ezcaservo to restore the suspensions did not help.

I realigned the IMC and brought TRANS SUM to ~18000 and MCREFL to < 0.5. The spot positions are not very good; nearly 2 mm off in pitch on MC1 and MC3. But after the alignment of MC, the WFS servo offsets were below +/-20.

The MC has been locked stably with WFS servo ON for the last few hours.

P.S. I did not touch the WFS pointing or reset the WFS offsets.

MC remained locked with WFS enabled all through last night and this morning. Koji dropped by and looked at the MC. The MC WFS servo, though stable, was at the edge of becoming unstable. This was because I did not touch the WFS pointing on the QPDs yesterday after realigning. So I recentered the WFS, reset the WFS filterbank offsets and reenabled the servo.

I measured the spot positions on MC mirrors for reference.

Spot positions in mm (MC1,2,3 pit MC1,2,3 yaw): [1.405767579680834, 0.79369009503571208, 1.3220430681427462, -1.2937873599406551, -1.1704264340968924, -1.2518046122798692]

The most useful found was that the ITMX-ISCT ac power is coming  from 1Y1 rack. This should actually go to 1Y2 LSC rack ?

 Please test this so we do not create more ground loops.

 Annual crane inspection is scheduled for 8-11am Monday, March 17, 2014

 

The control room Smart UPS has two red extension cords that has to be removed: Nodus and Linux1

 KroneCrane Fred inspected and certified the 3 40m cranes for 2014. The vertex crane crane was load tested at fully extended position.

Please take a look at the table top with the flashlight before removing it. If it is dusty, wipe it down with dry lint free cloth in the box.

There is one box with flash light and wiper at AP, ETMY & ETMX  optical tables.

I'm checking the status from home.

P1 is 8e-4 torr

nodus did not feel the power outage (is it APS supported?)

linux1 booted automatically

c1ioo booted automatically.

c1sus, c1lsc, c1iscex, c1iscey need manual power button push.

 9:11pm closed PSL shutter, turned Innolight 2W laser on,

         turned 3 IFO air cond on,

        CC1 5.1e-5 torr, V1 is closed, Maglev has failed, valve configuration is " Vacuum Normal "  with V1 & VM1 closed, RGA not running,   c1vac1 and c1vac2   were saved by UPS,

        (Maglev is not connected to the UPS because it is running on 220V)

        reset & started Maglev.........I can not open V1 without the 40mars running...........

        Rossa is the only computer running in the control room,

        Nodus and Linux1 was saved by UPS,

        turned on IR lasers at the ends, green shutters are closed

It is safe to leave the lab as is.
