Summary

Details

01:30 w_stop, w_start

01:32 Power on WFS via AOS GUI

01:55 All systems (wfs and adsec) up, running and ready.

01:55 Geno preset to pointing star

02:10 Active preset has collimated the telescope

02:12 preset, AO734, MODE=ACE, GS=18, PA=0

02:18 runao. CCD39 stop (Not Live) when the low order closed loop is closed during the acquireRef phase.

02:20 runao. Same freezing of CCD39

04:00 Talked to Simone and Alfio. Powered off and on the WUnit. Had problems with CCD47 equalization.
  • Click "Operate" button to get back to initial configuration
  • In Variable inspector GUI set slopecompctrl.R.FASTLINK.ENABLE.REQ for 0 to 1. Close loop button turns green on WFS Control GUI. WFSFrameCounter increment on AdSec Mirror GUI. Communication is working
  • While in Operate State can close the loop
    • setting bin = 1, Loop freq = 990, lambda=3.0 and Apply.
    • set gains to 0.0 on AdSec GUI.
    • close loop on wfs control gui
    • WFSFramecounter is changing
  • iif_preset and iif_runao and loop is closed.
  • Conclude that the power cycle of WUnit "fixed" it
