Past week report
At Kamioka (Mark, Fabian, Enzo, Hirata-san):
- Hirata-san and Sekine-san moved the tank lid and service port ring to the pallet with the crane and covered the open tank with the spare clean bag.
- Hirata-san and Mark got the LBB damper rings assembled and installed. A joint part for the Cu ring needed to have holes enlarged because the hole pattern did not quite match that on the half-ring. The magnet ring is hanging in the chamber and the Cu ring is attached below it with clamps, ready to receive the rods that will hang down from the PI.
- Hirata-san recounted all the unused cables.
- Hirata-san installed the outrigger parts on the LBB, which will receive the rods coming down from the damper ring.
- Enzo and Mark tested all the stepper motors.
- Enzo and Mark debugged the PI horizontal LVDTs. One LVDT had a flaky connection and one card in the LVDT driver had three dead channels. Enzo created a fully working driver using parts from another driver that also had a faulty card.
- Fabian adjusted the ballast mass on the SF to get good pitch/roll/vertical adjustment and attached it with screws.
- Fabian set up the optical lever again (the PR2 team had repossessed the breadboard we had been using but Akutsu-san supplied another one).
- Enzo and Mark tested the pico motors. The software is very unreliable, but we we able to confirm that the IM pitch pico works.
- The whole team wrapped items and shut down equipment ahead of the power outage.
