Release Date: May 07, 2009
Generic Release Name: B26
Public Release Name: ??? v?

Specific Tests that need to be performed with the Telescope

Patches to the Release

  • PMC Version 4.10
    • Use the glass temperature instead of the air temperature (minus 0.9 C) as the mirror ventilation set point when the blower if off.
  • GCS Version 2.1.17.0 (GCS.090511_01) Patch done on 11 May 2009 MDD
    • Removed the fix to the "offAxisCorrection" routine in WFSingThread.cpp which used "WFS_pupil_shift_x" to rectify the X position of the probe.
  • PSF Version 4.34
    • Change Z22 focus compensation from 10.03 to 8.43 per Andrew.
    • Add Z22 Z11 compensation of 0.15 per Andrew.
  • PMC Version 4.11
    • Add 1 second event throttles to errors for actuator force warnings and all voltage failures to avoid swamping the LSS.
  • PMC Version 4.12
    • Remove the offset from the error term and add it directly to the setpoint for the PID mirror ventilation per JMH. IssueTrak #2172.
  • PCS Version 3.35a
    • Added a diagnostic message to SYSLOG indicating the LEFTZEROPOINT value in use.

Known Bugs

  • none.

Release Overview

  • none.

Operating System, System Configuration, TCS and Hardware Computers

TCS Servers / Workstations

  • none.

agw-control computer

  • none.

jet computer, DSP, FPGA

  • none.

Networks

  • none.

PLCs

  • none.

TCS Subsystems and GUIs, and significant configuration files

lbt.conf

  • HBThermalLoopOffset changed from -8 to -10.
  • GCS.guideRate changed from 0.2 to 0.4

AGw control server

  • none.

AOS - Adaptive Optics

  • none.

ECS - Enclosure Control

  • ECS_Version-2.8
    • Since the ECSPLC is now fully wired (06 May 2009) to support the new auxiliary temperatures and alarms, the appropriate changes have been completed in the ECS subsystem to support this functionality. Recall the new temperatures displayed on the ECSGUI Chiller tab are
      • Supply Auxliary Chiller Temperature
      • Return Auxliary Chiller Temperature
        The warnings and alarms will be indicated when appropriate:
      • SupplyAuxChiller_HighTempWarn
      • SupplyAuxChiller_HighTempAlarm
      • ReturnAuxChiller_HighTempWarn
      • ReturnAuxChiller_HighTempAlarm

ENV - Environmental Sensors

  • none.

IIF / IRS - Instrument Interface

  • IIF Version 6.5
    • Add existing commands Standby, GetRotatorTrajectory, and RotatePrimary to the ICE interface.
    • Correct the "missing collimation" check for failed Presets, and add mode ACQUIRE to the "do not apply missing collimation" check. (IssueTrak #1999).

GCS - Guiding Control

  • GCS Version 2.1.16.0
    • Add a check for the AGW unit number in selectAGW so different AIP_LUCIFER units can be properly selected (IssueTrak #2164).
    • The automatic AGW selection has been disabled. THIS MEANS THE COMMAND LINE COMMAND, selectAGW config_file, MUST BE USED EACH TIME THE GCS IS STARTED.
    • For wavefront sensing, the X position of the probe is rectified (+/-1) based upon the WFS_pupil_shift_x parameter in the appropriate AGW file. There is also a rectification (+/-1) in the computation of angles based upon the WFS_pupil_shift_y parameter.

LSS - Logging and Events

  • none.

MCS / mcstemp - Mount Control

  • none.

OSS - Optical Support

  • none.

PCS - Pointing Control

  • PCS_Version-3.35
    • Added code to support the IRTCDG affine transform
      • AffineTransform (0, 0, 1/focalLength, 0, true, false)
      • AffineTransform (X0, Y0, scale, rotation, XFlip, YFlip)
    • Replaced use of the dispatcherRPC with a standard RPC call to avoid the problem of the rotator polynomials getting "held up" when trying to transmit to the MCSPU when a "ready" on the rotator has been invoked.

PCS GUI

  • none.

Preset GUI

  • none.

Pointing Kernel / Pointing Kernel tools

  • none.

PMC - Primary Mirror Cell

  • PMC Version 4.9
    • If the ECS or ventilation blower is not running, override the mirror ventilation set point command value to be glass - 0.9C per John Hill's request (IssueTrak #1846). This is to prevent the set point from getting cockeyed during the day when the air is warm.

PSF - Point Spread Function

  • none.

SDB - Star Database

  • none.

TCS GUI

  • none.

WX - Weather Station

  • none.
