 * Realized that the SF/BF/... section doesn't need 6 kg added, it needs 6 kg ''removed'', but none to remove. The 20 kg extra in the BF to match the SF GAS filter makes the whole chain overload the PI GAS filter.
 * Lifted the SF/BF/... section to check for net weight and balance. Was 307 kg (cf. G&M's measurement of 301 kf in 2012 for the F0). Can be balanced with only 63 g extra.
 * Went to build up the LBB blade units but discovered that the holes in the base of the blades are two small (are Ø11 mm; should be Ø12 MM). 3D CAD was correct - error was in the 2D drawing. Shipped the blades away for modification.
 * Tested the SF LVDT actuation and worked on debugging it. Still not working.
 * Prepared the PI for being lifted, and the top of the assembly frame for receiving it.
 * Searched for and found the old PI-SF rod.
 * Did safety improvements after Enzo hit his head on a flange bolt: reversed all the bolts on the ±X sides of the BS and put caution tape on them.
 * Debugged Kokeyama-san's changes to the real-time model for the DIO, and started on TFs to check the output filter compensation is working.
 * 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 21: Line 26:
Week of 4/24 (four-day week):
 * Crane in PI.
 * Connect SF/BF... section and see if we're indeed overweight and by exactly how much.
 * Finish debugging SF LVDT actuation.

Week of 5/1:
 * No activity (Golden Week).
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.

Type B (Mark)

Past week report

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

  • 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.
