    • Pair Spectrometer Magnet remote control - Control is now working. Hysteresis procedure will be done by hand.
    • Pair Spectrometer Magnet Field readout Hall probe is here and will be installed by Wes. We should have a field reading for the commissioning.
    • Survey:
      • FDC
      • Collimator
      • Pair Spectrometer detector: finishing today.
      • Profiler: 1st profiler surveyed. Downstream profiler near beam dump to be surveyed Friday. Downstream profiler when located in front of Solenoid. Will be done next week after Havanes moves it there
      • Start counter: Survey should be done by the end of the day.
      • FCal: Today
