In order to test all the software and hardware that will be used for the influence function measurements with trigger, we started a test session
Installation of the interferometer
Setting the shell and restoring the last available HP setting used with the interferomete, the spot goes back to the F/15 focal plane with few mm precision.
new hexapod position:[-591, 1836, -49, 179., -56., -0]
The pupil changed its position on the 4D CCD
The new detector mask has been saved in mask/2009_07_30_temporary_mask.mask
In order to startup the operations with interferomete, here is the initialization procedure:
Press "D" button on the 4Sight GUI for starting the Pyro Services on the 4D PC side
mount 4D disk of inteerferometer PC on LBT672 PC with command mount 4d (currently on the $HOME directory)
from a new shell on LBT672 PC run the command: InterferometerCtrl to start the Pyro Services on the LBT672 PC side *
the new mask has been loaded on the LBT672a PC taking an interferometric measurement and fitted with the command in a IDL terminal: print, idl_4d_init() print, get_m4d(filename, img, mask) ;to read the data from filename fit = pupilfit(mask, guess=[500,500,450, 0.01], /circle, /disp)
Correct the hexapod alignment using the command: print, hextrack(pupil=fit, /apply) If you need to correct the alignment using the hexapod during the measurement simply repeat the last command.
Disconnect the fiber deriving from the W unit in the fiber box, channel 9 and 10 (red on channel 9)
Connect RT fiber from W2 electronic box (SlopeComputer) to channel 9 and 10 (red on channel 9)
Preliminary test of routines (without WFS connection): print, make_modal_disturb(from_mode, to_mode, /SEND) ;generate the disturb and upload id to the ADSEC print, wfs_switch_step(fltarr(1600), /ena_di) ;send a "dummy" wfs frame to switchbcu to enable disturbance print, wfs_switch_step(fltarr(1600), /dis_di) ;send a "dummy" wfs frame to switchbcu to disable disturbance
On W2 PC:
from desktop launch "W2Restart". In the meanwhile power on the electronic box
in WFS Arbitrator GUI select "TestRON" and press power on.
launch WFS Hardware GUI and select CCD39 window
wait for CCD39 to become "operating"
press "equalize quadrants" and verify the dark level on the viewer greater than zero
