Type B (Mark)
Past week report
At Kamioka (Mark, Ohishi-san, Enzo, Yoshioka-kun):
- We installed the cut-down ballast mass under the IM and tweaked the IM height and balance.
- We checked the range of the BF FR.
- We adjusted the BF yoke by 2.5 mm to make it give ≈0 output for nominal height.
- We found a good gain setting for the LVDT driver and calibrated the BF LVDT.
- We set up the optical sensors facing the RM.
- We assembled the IRM (with OSEMs) around the IM and got it mostly adjusted.
- We changed the k1visbs model to restore the as-designed mapping of OSEMs to DAQ channels.
- We confirmed that the BF LVDT actuation coil and the TM OSEM coils were working.
- We connected up the IRM OSEMs (with the new Type 5-1.7 cables) but found there was an electrical issue: all the OSEMs are reading back the same constant value, around 1115.
- We left the suspension in a state suitable for TFs from BF GAS actuation to sensing (in vertical) and from RM OSEM actuation to the optical sensors (in horizontal) over the weekend.
At Mitaka (Hirata-san):
- He got quotes for the SR assembly frame and did cost-reduction negotiations with Aso-san and Mirapro.
got quotes for assembly frame.
- He did 2D drawings and a parts list for the divided LBB dampers.
- He contacted a company about SDC.
- He made a 3D model and drawings for the SR wire clamps.
