SUSI SET UP PROCEDURE
-The setup procedure takes 1-2hrs to complete once everything is powered up.
-In summer start as late as possible to avoid alignment problems resulting
from solar heating of the tunnel/enclosure.
-You might need to check the internal alignment after a few (3-4?) hrs as
tunnel temperature cools.
-Shutdown and logout each night otherwise a server lag settles in and
-Power up the building and systems if noone has been
at SUSI for a while.
-Check vacuum pipe pressure. If higher than 0.2atm pump down for ~1hr to ~0.05atm.
-Select your sids for the night, depending on observing program.
-Login as Observer, pwd is on noticeboard.
-Open 4 terminals: Login to Peleas(ssh), Gareth(ssh+passwd), Gaheris(ssh+passwd).
Leave one as Arthur
-Check all clocks match, 'date'.
-Run picoset as observer on arthur. This sets all the picomotor speeds.
-Start up UIs:
In Peleas: xrun_sidcon ?x (?=n/s, x=1-4)
In Gareth: xrun_fringecon
In Gaheris: xrun_wobble2
wobble2gtk (do this after completing the wobble2 autolist)
(wobble2gtk should work from any machine)
In arthur: sidcongtk ?x (where ?x matches the sidcons above)
(Do this after the sidcon servers have completed their autolist)
xrun_scheduler & [Starts xmms (sounds) and ccat (command history)]
-For each UI follow the "automatic setup procedure/run the auto list", 1
-Sidcons: Put periscopes in
-LDC: Ensure LEDS are on. Otherwise the limit switches arent turned on and the wedge
runs into the endstops and shreds the pulley!
Check Mode is 'Air & Glass', wavelength, and that it indexes correctly.
Now set to zero total optical dispersion (2 5 ie. from main menu go to 2 then 5).
May need to hit red LDC 'reset' button on north rack.
-Wobble2: check camera temp & sink (~-40to-50, ~27to32deg is normal)
-Opttab2: srcin, rdsout,
Check settings in fringecon (LUT, sample time, filter, damping, process type:
eg. scan140_1024(long) or scan35f_256(short), 0.2, 0.7/0.08, 4, equalise apds)
-opcon: You may need to hit the red PLC 'reset' button on north rack if it
type 'centre' to turn both piezos on and centre them
[OR from main menu:2 2 2 1 select piezo and turn both on (4 to centre->0x800)]
from main :6 to toggle status display
from main: :4 for tracking menu
If the dogleg is in type 'user_offset n -72106953'
Zero the carriage in PLC
5 to centre piezos
3 2 1 set rate|unstop|stop to move carriage to zero position
use rates 10,5,2 near centre and end by going +ve
0 load centre position values, ie. zero it
(You will need to unplug/replug the zeroset guage box)
-Start StarTrackMsg (stMsg) on PC. Must do this AFTER starting wobble2 & wobble2gtk
(Note this startup order for times when wobble2 is shutdown/restarted)
-Scheduler should make and set a new data directory (msd) on opening
Do dir /export/snert/data/yymmdd (if necessary)
if this fails type msd in an arthur window
sid n? s? ? to set the sids an direction, eg. sid n4 s3 s
reopen to make all connections
fs 300 600 15 eg. to set fringe search parameters
Note: scans 1000 50 is default - see Scheduler notes.
-wobble2gtk: Take darks in track, ref and widefield modes to check response,
ie. that the counts drop to ~zero. Lights in enclosure should be off.
-Ensure stMsg intensifier (black box under monitor), APDs and CCD are OFF
-Connect ports #54 and #55 with the short patch cable. This connects the
Pico-motor Hand Paddle (PHP) to port #55 by the BRT.
-Into enclosure. Take PHP. Take a siderostat key. Switch on laser, remove all ND.
Leave polariser in. If necessary, adjust src mirror to centre laser on pinhole,
ie. to ensure even illumination of pupil.
-Check small apertures (10mm) are in. Check laser spots appear on BRT double target.
-Switch on wobbler power supplies (near BRT). They should settle at 72.5V.
-Go to sids, remove bins and heaters, unbolt roof. Leave rooves closed till dark.
-Back to BRT, follow alignment procedure
-Stop tracking in sids. Stow sids (ensure they stop at El~330deg)
-Stop tracking in opcon, slew to zero. Zero up.
-LDC:2 5 to set to zero dispersion position
-Wobble2gtk: open servos, stop logging data, stop.
-To electronics rack: sids and OPLC to standby, air-con on.
-Exit stMsg, turn off intensifier
-Close down all servers
-Switch off APDs. Check intensifier is off and CCD is stopped.
-Into enclosure: ND out of laser, check all is OK
-Turn off wobbler power supplies
-Put BRT double target on. Put BRT lower periscope dust covers on.
-To sids: bin the neds, mirror heater in place, close housings
-Go to bed and sleep:)
Powering up the building and systems
First do the control room then go clockwise around the tunnel.
Reverse this list to power down.
-South (red) electronics rack - at back
-switch on 3(4?)x GPOs at bottom of middle rack marked 'red table'
-switch on red-table power supplies box (red switch)
-North (blue) electronics rack - at back
-NOTE: on shutdown leave power on to panel holding air-con switches.
This will allow local staff to switch a/c on before we arrive.
-switch on 8x GPOs on left-hand rack, all labelled
-check all power leads (both ends) are well seated
-ensure a fan is blowing over the LDC box to prevent frequent
LDC RTP failures
-Dynavac vacuum pipe gauge in NE corner
-Printer, photocopier and fax, air-con in control room and living room
Going clockwise from NE cnr of control room
-Blue table tunnel
-1(2?)x GPO. Supplies Pico 8,9
-North end of tunnel
-UPS.Check 4x GPO on enclosure roof. Supplies south metrology and Pico 10,11
-Centre of OPLC (inside enclosure)
-UPS under OPLC near wobblers. Supplies carriage
-BRT tunnel on enclosure roof
-3x GPO -UPS.Supplies acquisition camera + other
-Environdata. LEAVE ON.
-South tunnel (near BRT tunnel)
-UPS. Supplies wobbler power supplies
-South end of tunnel (outside enclosure, western side)
-UPS. Supplies north metrology
-South end of tunnel (inside enclosure)
-1x GPO. Supplies Pico 11,12
-Red table tunnel
-UPS. Supplies power board A. LEAVE ON.
-Power board A -CCD cooler, LEAVE ON unless leaving for a long time.
-CCD (Note order: For on, Cooler then CCD and vice versa)
-APD + scanning mirror
-Pico 1,2,3 + Pico ethernet controller (must be switched on
*after* all pico motors have been switched on. Note you must
also reset all the motor speeds whenever the controller has
been switched off with 'picoset')
-GPO on floor at south side of red table.
Supplies alignment laser, white light source
and filter wheels (leave fw's off usually)
