Steve and I moved some things around in the 1X2 rack in order to make room (roughly 6") for the electronics box that will contain rf frequency counters, ADC, and Raspberry Pi's for use in the Frequency Offset Locking apparatus




First, we killed power by removing the fuse that the boxes we were moving were running through.

Then, we moved the boxes. I dropped//lost a washer. It didn't seem to cause any problems, so no further attempts to locate it were made.

The fuse was reinstalled, and everything was reconnected.

Moving Forward

We are now working on putting together the electronics box, which will contain ADC, and raspberry pi's. The frequency counters will be mounted on the front of the box.

Once complete, it will be installed for use in FOL.

Additional comments:

This was done based on the earlier proposed setup plan for the frequency counters that will be used to measure the beat note frequencies [Akhil's elog]

I switched off the power supply to the green PDs so that we don't cause any damage while moving the amplifier panel for the beat signals and beatbox.
