Subject: maglev failed 

Our Osaka TG360MB maglev failed with CSB error message. This means that the dry emergency landing bearing has to be replaced.

I will consalt with Osaka about the choice of replacing bearing or installing new spare  tomorrow.

Mean while V1 is closed and the vac envelope is not pumped.

Valve configuration: BG -background, pumping on the RGA-only

High voltage to IOO PZT steering mirrors and OMC are turned off.

PSL output shutter is closed and manual block is in place.

I will start cooling the CYO pump in the morning, so the IFO will be pumped by noon.


Outgassing plus leakrate after  10 hrs the pressure is 2.3 mTorr

This rate of rise is normal and it is safe to work with the ifo.
