Present: Elliott W, Dave B, Vanik K, Giles B, Josh B, Mark S, Scot S, Sarin P, Cody D.

We went over the agenda very briefly to leave time for Sarin's second tutorial on Danfysik power supplies. Some highlights:

  • Scot likely will wire the new CompatcLogix channels to terminal blocks for better organization.
  • We don't think Dataforth isolators are needed for the new channels.
  • Vanik is working on the motion control driver, adding new functions, developing gui's, etc.
  • Nerses will return soon to work on the HV and LV systems.
  • RDC is connected to the UPS, Giles is finalizing plans for power in the rack room.
  • Our techs (Mark B, etc.) will do the wiring, Paul Powers will inspect.

At this point Sarin took over.
