These procedures are used for shutting down MagAO-X at the end of a work day.
This procedure can be used if you expect to startup in a few hours, right away the next day, etc.
The main goal here is to shutoff “the expensive stuff”. Namely:
do not power off a DM unless it has been released
do not power off a camera unless its temp is 20C or higher
do not power off instcool!
steps can be done in parrallel, so start warming up cameras, go on, then come back
- Cameras (each of camsci1 camsci2 camlowfs camwfs):
close the shutter
warm up to 20C (use cameraGUI, change setpoint)
wait for it to finish
note: for camlowfs, power off under both pdu1 and usbdu0.
open the loop
press “loop zero”
zero all ch
- dmwoofer and dmncpc
zero all ch
if modulating, first press set in Pupil Alignment GUI
power off in Power GUI
press rest in Pupil Alignment GUI
power off camtip (its just a heater)
power off source
power off tableair
Remaining devices such as focus stages and filter wheels can be left on, which will make alignment easier next time.
Standard Daily Shutdown
If MagAO-X will be unused for a longer period of time (say a weekend), we typically shut down everything but computers, networking and cooling.
At the end of this, the following things will still be on:
Note: it is critical that you not shutdown instcool while compicc and/or comprtc are on!
Follow the steps in “Minimal Shutdown” above. Also do the following.
fwtelsim and fwscind:
first power off on usbdu0
then power off on dcdu1
Everything else (except the items listed above) can be shutdown in any order. Occassional errors in the logs during shutdown may occur.
