Even if we can't use the Dataviewer to get the time series of each 4 DOF displacements, we can still use StripTool to monitor the ringdowns and see if the damping servo is working.
What I did:
1. Excited vibration by kicking the mirror randomly (by putting some offsets randomly and turing the filters on and off randomly).
2. Turned all the servo off by clicking "ShutDown" button.
3. Turned all the servo on by clicking "Normal" button.
3. Monitored each 4 DOF displacements with StripTool and see if there are any considerably low-Q ringdown after turning on the servo.
The values I monitored are as follows;
All the settings I used for this observation are automatically saved here;
Attached is the screenshots of StripTool Graph window for each 3 MCs.
As you can see, the dampings for each DOF, each MCs are basically working.
Do NOT turn off all the damping servo by clicking "Damp" buttons or setting the SUSXXX_GAIN to 0. It crashes c1mcs.
- check and relate the signal sign with the actual moving direction of the optics
- fix data aquisition system
- measure Q-values when the servo is on and off using DAQ and Dataviewer
