 * 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 counted the used/broken/unused/need cables for Type B.
 * Hirata-san and Mark installed blades in three LBB blade units.
 * Hirata-san checked the LBB blade units to see how badly the blade tips were misaligned. The bases will need to be moved towards the clamp end by 21 mm. It is probably not feasible to turn the screw holes into slots, so an adapter part will need to be designed.
 * We checked that the new in-vacuum geophone cables that Takahashi-san had got for us were the proper new-style ones. (Thus we will need in-air descrambler cables.)
 * Shoda-san sent Enzo a document by Joris on the tuning of the LVDTs, so he stated working through it. He also researched the specifications of all the coils (PI and SF as well as BF.)
 * We found the damper magnets and the template for placing the magnets on the ring for the SF.
 * Hirata-san installed and wired up the PI yaw stepper. The vertical stepper still needs wiring, and the horizontal stepper wiring needs to be made vacuum-compatible.
 * We installed safety bars on the ±X side of the assembly frame about 3 m off the floor, so they are at waist height for a person standing on one of the tall ladders. The one on the +X side will be very good for safety where it is, but the one on the -X side will need re-doing: it is too close and not very securely attached because of interference from vacuum pump cabling.
 * We unlocked the inverted pendulum and experimented with adding weight. It was still stable with 4 layers of arc weights.
 * We also experimented with getting both the IP centered and the security structure vertical (so that the suspension hang centrally within it). We managed to get it all right with a combination of leveling the PI with the jacks and moving the IP with the fishing rods.
 * Adjusting the verticality of the SS had left the bottom of it off-center in the assembly frame, so we picked the entire system up with the crane and moved it in +Y and -X a few mm to re-center it.
 * We started to remove the PI so we could do various adjustments (check the SF LVDT, reconfigure the Cu damper, add the hex cable clamp on the rod and hang the magnet disk for the SF damper) but gave up when the PI-SF jammed in the SF.
Line 27: Line 26:
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 5/15:
 * Enzo from Tuesday 5/16 (driving test), rest of team from Monday.
 * Fix PI-SF rod jamming.
 * Remove PI and SF cap.
 * Continue debugging SF LVDT.
 * Reconfigure Cu damper ring on SF.
 * Add magnets to upper SF damper ring.
 * Add cable clamps on the PI (a few places are inaccessible when the PI is on the assembly frame).
 * Reinstall PI, this time with rods and damper ring.
 * Reinstall PI-SF rod, this time with hex cable clamp.
 * Prepare for PR2 bellows removal on 5/15 (move table with tools).
 * Cable/test PI horizontal LVDTs and steppers.
 * Install/cable/test geophones.
