Line 9: Line 9:
 * Filed crane adapter ring to make it fit better on the hook.
 * Debugged the BF and SF LVDTs (the signal generator had lost its settings in the rack shutdown).
 * Debugged the TM-H4 OSEM problem (a "Type 3 extension cable had gone bad).
 * Weighed eyebolts used to lie the SF.
 * Shipped the old pico driver and joystick back to Mitaka for Eleonora.
 * Borrowed a second pico driver ("PR3") and set it and "BS" up in the rack.
 * Practiced driving the BF cap picos with the new drivers.
 * (With help from Miyo-kun) got the pico MEDM screens running.
 * Replace the temporary "PR3" driver with a new one "BS_BF", and renamed "BS" to "BS_IM".
 * Checked all the DIO connections to the LPCD and connected up the HPCDs. With help from Kokeyama-san we can now see all the drivers from EPICS.
 * Worked on balancing the BF/IRM/IM... section. Sometime during this work, the IM sank and would not come back to its proper position even with the fishing rod. We put a scale under the RM and found that the imbalance was 488 g. Using the fishing rod we got this down to 235 g, but we found that the direction of the stepper was not consistently related to the direction selected on the driver screen - we had previously noted that "left" was "up, but driving "up" the imbalance would decrease to 235 g and then start increasing again, indicating the stepper had bounced off some obstacle. (There was no obvious sound when this happened, unlike at the low end.)
 * We decided to give up on tuning the height of the IM with the fishing rod and to proceed with the test hang by locking the BF keystone at the desired height.
 * Hirata-san installed the PI fishing rod and magic wand, and did more work on changing the PI LVDT connectors from female to male.
 * Enzo made many edits to the circuit diagram, adding the DIO for the HPCDs and correcting minor mistakes.
 * We craned in the PI.
 * We assembled the thrust bearing holder that receives the PI-SF rod. (The recess for the bearing was very slightly too small and had a burr near a retaining screw hole that prevented the bearing from seating properly, and so it required filing and re-cleaning.)
 * We hooked the SF and lowered the jacks under the SF to suspend the SF/... section.
 * The top filter rose when unlocked, and required about 1.8 kg to send it back down. Therefore we may be OK - the top filter seems to have about 8 kg more capacity than as measured by G&M. The hex cable clamp (≈0.25 kg) and the cables between the PI and SF still have to be added, but we can get an extra 3 kg by removing one of the three Cu damper segments (and rearranging the other two).
 * Hirata-san built and installed three LBB blade units.
 * Enzo kept debugging the SF LVDT. We repaired several broken wires, but it's still not behaving correctly. We suspect the ordering of the three coils (input output and excitation) may not be right. If so, we should be able to fix it with an adapter cable without removing the SF cap.

Week of 4/17:
 * Install temporary ballast mass in SF.
 * Lift SF/BF/... section and check total weight and SF balance.
 * Continue swap of PI LVDT connectors (female->male)
 * Start preparing LBB spring units.
Week of 4/24:
 * Crane in PI.
 * Connect SF/BF... section.
 * Temporarily remove PI and adjust SF ballast if necessary.
Week of 5/1:
 * No activity (Golden Week).

Week of 5/8:
 * Commence work Tuesday 5/9.
 * Remove PI temporarily.
 * Continue debugging SF LVDT (removing cap if necessary).
 * Investigate possible mis-alignment between the tips of the LBB blades and the holes for the rods going down to the damper ring.
 * Add magnets to upper SF damper ring.
 * Reinstall PI, this time with rods and damper ring.
 * Reinstall PI-SF rod, this time with hex cable clamp.
 * Install PI yaw stepper.
 * Wire up PI yaw stepper and vertical fishing-rod steppers.
 * Route cables from SF to PI (may involve removing part of Cu damper).

Week of 5/15:
 * Enzo from Tuesday 5/16 (driving test), rest of team from Monday.
 * Prepare for PR2 bellows removal on 5/15 (move table with tools).
 * Wire up PI horizontal LVDTs and steppers.
 * Install geophones.
 * Unlock IP, re-level PI to center PI, add arc weights as required.

Past week report

At Kamioka (Mark, Fabian, Enzo, Perry, Hirata-san):

  • We craned in the PI.
  • We assembled the thrust bearing holder that receives the PI-SF rod. (The recess for the bearing was very slightly too small and had a burr near a retaining screw hole that prevented the bearing from seating properly, and so it required filing and re-cleaning.)
  • We hooked the SF and lowered the jacks under the SF to suspend the SF/... section.
  • The top filter rose when unlocked, and required about 1.8 kg to send it back down. Therefore we may be OK - the top filter seems to have about 8 kg more capacity than as measured by G&M. The hex cable clamp (≈0.25 kg) and the cables between the PI and SF still have to be added, but we can get an extra 3 kg by removing one of the three Cu damper segments (and rearranging the other two).

  • Hirata-san built and installed three LBB blade units.
  • Enzo kept debugging the SF LVDT. We repaired several broken wires, but it's still not behaving correctly. We suspect the ordering of the three coils (input output and excitation) may not be right. If so, we should be able to fix it with an adapter cable without removing the SF cap.
