SECTOR 5 LIST
|PROJECT||NEXT MILESTONE||DEADLINE||PREVIOUS MILESTONE|
|B4||Final implementation of b4
Update Feb 27: All features now included. Refining arrangement of items on the gui to make TaskQueue more intuitive.
|Mar 16, 2017||Tested and available with basic features (collection, centering…etc)|
|Pin base warmer||Install pin base warmer on 5.0.X.
Update Feb 27: Measured temperature at loop when pin base warmer is on. Temperature is stable for two minutes while pin base is warming. Next step: Measure amount of frost reduction results from warming the base.
|Mar 16, 2017||Installed heater on 5.0.2.|
|Beamline characterization||Develop tools for automatic COR detection
Update Feb 27: Tested z1 position.
Next step: Add access to Z1 from Admin menu. Tie in scripts for automatic COR detection.
|Mar 17, 2017||Positions for Alignment jigs and VersaPins (position Z1) installed into robot dewars on 501 and 502. Robot mount/unmount tested.|
|Investigate ways to make the robot faster
Update Feb 27: Investigating moving collimator stage on 501 back to allow collimator to remain stationary during robot mounts. Investigating changes in software to remove unnecessary steps in robot mount.
|Mar 17, 2017|
Update Feb 27: Auto loop centering button (which calls scripts) available in B4. Initial tests look good. Will continue testing through end of shutdown.
|Jan 27, 2017||Automatic loop centering finished. Next step: automatic rastering to located crystal in loop.|
|Vortex detector||Integrated into b3. Next step: automatic foil insertion to reduce saturation.
Update Dec 15: We are starting to work on the scripts to do this, but need more beamtime. This will be delayed until we get light back in March.
|Dec 21, 2016||Repaired and returned. Testing completed. Integrated into b3.|
|Dynamic beamstop||DBS made and bracketry installed on 501 and 503. Next step is installing a new PMAC on 501 to read the signal. For 502, next step is reading signal in b3.
Update Dec 15: signal is being read into b4 now and can be plotted as a function of time. Now waiting for X-rays for final test.
|Dec 21, 2016||Working spare (1.25mm) for 5.0.2 available. Working DBS made for 5.0.1. Signal reads well through LabView.
|Beamline improvement||New Pilatus on 5.0.1
Update Feb 27: Detector installed.
Next: Test running of 501 and 502 simultaneously from same PPU.
|Mar 18, 2016||Tested on 5.0.2 before shutdown. Bracket installed for 5.0.1. Detector installed.|
|Beamline improvement||New robot dewar lid on 5.0.2
Update Feb 27: Design done and prints in the machine shop.
|Mar 18, 2016|
COMPLETED SECTOR 5 ITEMS
|Gonio improvement||New snout||July 7, 2016||New snout ordered in May, arrived on June 13. Tested on June 13. Turned out to be slightly longer than old one, so adjusted gonio and robot accordingly.|

|B4||Add ability for manual evaluation.||July 18, 2016||Will not be available in b3, but b4 can be run simultaneously with b3 to access this feature.|
|Reduction of ice in dewars||Copper-bottom lid installed on 502 to reduce friction between lid and dewar.||August 16, 2016||Installed and tested. (Note that 501 lid was previously also installed and tested.)|
|Pilatus – 502||Replaced 2 modules and associated electronic boards (new design from Dectris) and internal cable||August 18, 2016||This introduced a new error with the cancel run command. Dectris will fix during January shutdown.|
|B3||Show SpotFinder results for every image||Sept 26, 2016||Also implemented in b4.|
|B3||Shutterless raster installed on 502.||Oct 7, 2016||Raster sped up on ADSC beamlines as well.|

|Expanding capabilities||Kappa on 502||Nov 7, 2016||New interlocks installed to allow full rotation of phi when using kappa. Also modified DBS brcketry.|
|Beamline characterization/optimization||Automatic calibration of collimator size scripts implemented||Nov 30, 2016||Code is in python, and uses SciPy.|
|Expanding capabilities||Shutterless helical vector||Dec 14 2016||Note that shutterless raster and non-shutterless vector are already in operation|
