==== Report for week of 7/2 ====
 * We double-checked the bounce frequency and it was indeed around 0.5 Hz with the CuBe auxiliary spring installed.
 * We prepared (but did not yet install) 6 arc weights for tuning the IP.
 * We unlocked the security structure from the assembly frame, and raised the whole system on the top jacks. We then unlocked the IP and adjusted the leveling so the IP was centered. We then had to loosen two of the poles at the top level of the security structure to make it vertical again, because it turns out that the jack receptacles (which also serve as the IP leg bases) are welded at very uneven depths in the bottom surface of the PI, so the IP and the bottom surface can't be level at once.
 * We debugged an issue with the height of the payload. It turns out that due to a buildup of errors (especially an extra 3 mm between the SF and BF), the payload is some 5-6 mm low with the F0 keystone at CAD height. Since the frequency is roughly independent of height around 0.5 Hz, we decided to go with a higher F0 keystone.
 * Enzo and Eleonora routed all the SF/... cables up to the PI.
 * We found we needed 4.7 kg of extra mass to get the desired keystone height, so we decided to put the third Cu segment (3.3 kg) back on, purely as ballast.
 * We put some extra small masses on the SF cap to level it. The suspension is now fully ballasted and trimmed except for 1 Promec mass (455 g) standing in for the new PI yaw stepper motor assembly (estimated 330 g) which is yet to arrive.
 * We took all the SR sat amps back to Mozumi to get new capacitors installed, and grabbed three spares for use while that is being done.
 * We investigated and documented Tanaka-san's watchdog for the BS, to see if the BIO Converter chassis that it uses could also drive reset lines for stepper motor driver boxes.
 * Hirata-san and Terrence characterized the last 4 F0 blades.
 * Hirata-san and Terrence installed blades in the top filter for SR2 and tuned it to 0.5 Hz (with the CuBe auxiliary spring) over three rounds of compression.
==== Report for week of 7/9 ====
 * We cleaned up after the heavy rain. There was no significant damage but some cardboard boxes of parts got wet and the contents needed to be moved to other containers and the boxes discarded. Water collected on the SR2 crane slot cover and had to be vacuumed away before the cover could be opened. A new section of corrugated roof was installed to minimize the problem for the future.
 * Enzo and team got all of the in-vacuum and in-air cables for the SF/... and PI properly routed and tested except (so far) for the geophones.
 * Hirata-san and team finished tuning of the F0 for SR2 and moved the PI into the SR2 cleanbooth. It turns out to be about 8 kg weaker than for SR3, whereas the SR2 chain is only 3 kg lighter, so we will have to do some combination of decompression, removing Cu segments and using a stronger CuBe spring (e.g., a Type A F0 FR blade instead of the F2 one in SR3). We closed the floor in the SRM area for safety, but we will probably reopen it as soon as next week for the SRM F0 build.
 * Hirata-san opened the SR3 tank, craned the LBB damper ring sandwich up to the top of the tank and suspended it.
 * Enzo and team corrected a lot of flipped connections on the SR3 PI LVDTs (primary<->secondary on the horizontal, primary<->actuation on the F0).
 * We added the arc weights and geophones and re-centered the IP. It seems stable and very soft, which is good.

Report for week of 7/9

  • We cleaned up after the heavy rain. There was no significant damage but some cardboard boxes of parts got wet and the contents needed to be moved to other containers and the boxes discarded. Water collected on the SR2 crane slot cover and had to be vacuumed away before the cover could be opened. A new section of corrugated roof was installed to minimize the problem for the future.
  • Enzo and team got all of the in-vacuum and in-air cables for the SF/... and PI properly routed and tested except (so far) for the geophones.
  • Hirata-san and team finished tuning of the F0 for SR2 and moved the PI into the SR2 cleanbooth.
