Subject: GigE installation in the IFO area 

I tried to capture some images with the GigE inside the Interferometer area in the 40m today. For that, I connected the POE injector to the Netgear Switch in 1x6 and connected it to the GigE. I then tried to access the Pylon Viewer App through Paola but that seemed to have some errors. When trying to connect to the Basler, quite a few errors were encountered in establishing connection and trying to capture the image. There were a few errors with single shot capture but the continuous shot could not even be started. To locate the problem, I tried running the Pylon installation through Allegra in the control room and everything seemed to work fine there.

Few error messages encountered

createPylondevice error :Failed to read memory at 0xc0000000, 0xd800 bytes. Timeout. No message received.
Failed to stop the camera; stopgrab: Exception Occurred: Control Channel not open


Eventually I connected Paola to the Switch with an Ethernet cable and over this wired connection, the errors were resolved and I was able to capture some images in Continuous shot mode at 103.3 fps without any problem.

In the afternoon, Steve and I tried to install the camera near MC2 and get some images of the mirrors. Due to a restricted field of view of the lens on the camera, after many efforts to focus on the optic, we were able to get this image. MC2 was unlocked so this image captures some resonating higher order mode.

With MC2 locked, I will get some images of the mirror at different exposure times and try to get an HDR image.  
As per Rana's suggestion, I am also looking up which compression format would be the best to save the images in.
