Here is what is left to do:

  1. Strain relief of all cabling. Chub will take care of this in the coming days. I have said he can connect and disconnect cables as he pleases, but after this work, we may require a hard reboot of the Acromag chassis before restoring functionality to the channels, as it is known that the Acromags can sometimes get "stuck" by a sudden connection of voltage.
  2. Installation of DB15 cable to the P2 connector of the CM board and a DB9 cable to the ALS demod unit (LO and RF power monitors). These will arrive in the next couple of days and Chub will take care of the install.
  3. Design, manufacture and install of a custom version of the backplane P1 adaptor board with only 1 D37 connector - for some of the PD DC signals, a custom adaptor board, part number D010005 for which I can't find any schematics is already installed on the P2 connector, and makes the DC monitor signals available to 4 LEMO connectors. These signals are then digitized by the fast CDS system, presumably for PDH signal normalization. The footprint of this P2--->LEMO adaptor is such that we cannot simply install our P1---> 2xDB37 adaptor boards, because of space constraints. Fortunately, there is a simple fix to reduce the footprint of the board: remove the bottom DB37 connector, which is unused in the c1iscaux system except for the CM board. I recommend getting ~10 pcs of such boards, as it is also useful in a few other places, where the power cabling to the eurocrates are a space constraint. See Attachment #1 for a picture explaining this situation. Anyone want to volunteer to take care of this?
  4. In-situ testing. This is easiest done with some light available in the interferometer. Which in turn requires IMC to be locked. Which in turn requires satellite box fixing. Anyone want to volunteer to take care of this?
  5. Modify C0EDCU.ini to trend the new slow channels we may want long-term monitoring of (e.g. LO power levels to the Demod boards). Anyone want to volunteer to take care of this?
  6. Decide what to do about the CM latch logic. There are some contraints with the way the acromag register addressing works, that I've had to change the way the mbboDirect bits are controlled. Unfortunately, this seems to sometimes and unpredictably cause the bits to flip in a non-robust way, which is the whole point of having the latch in the first place. Either the latch logic needs to be improved, or we need to implement the latch logic in the fast CDS system, not the slow.

Today I set up the autoburt.req file for the c1iscaux channels, and confirmed that the snapshots are getting recorded. There were a lot of channels in the old autoburt.req file which I thought were un-necessary (and several which no longer exist), so now the only channels that are burt-ed are the whitening gains and states of the AA filters. If someone feels we need more channels to be snapshot recorded, you can add them to the file.

In the old target directory, there were also various versions of a "saverestore.req" file - why do we need this in addition to an autoburt? I guess it is possible they are used by the IFOconfigure scripts to setup some whitening gains etc...
