Subject: Vent progress - ETMX SUS Coil driver electronics investigation 

Yesterday, I expanded the extent of the ETMX suspension coil driver investigation. I set up identical monitors for two more coils (so now we are monitoring the voltage sent to UL, UR and LL - I didn't set one up for LR because it is on a second DB25 connector). Furthermore, I increased the excitation amplitude from ~20 to ~2000 (each coil had an independent oscillator at slightly different frequency between 5Hz and 8.5 Hz), the logic being that during LSC actuation we send signals of approximately this amplitude to the coils and we wanted to see if a larger amplitude signal somehow makes the system more prone to glitches.

Over ~10 hours of observation, there is no clear evidence of any glitch. About 2 hours ago (~930am PDT Fri Jul 8), the watchdog tripped - but this was because even though I had increased the trip threshold to ~800 for the course of this investigation, megatron runs this script every 20 minutes or so that automatically reduces this threshold by 17 counts - so at some point, the threshold went lower than the coil voltage, causing the watchdog to trip. So this was not a glitch. The other break around 2am PDT earlier today was an FB crash.

Do we now go ahead and pull the suspension out, and proceed with the swap?
