During the past two days we proceeded in the assembly of Peltier cells and temperature sensors on two HWS-HR, their cabling, proper work tests and their installation on optical benches. In figure 1, the two HWS-HR installed on WI (left, HWS-5) and WE (right, HWS-14) benches.
We decided to install HWS CCD with upgraded cooling fins on the WI bench, that seems to be more affected by temperature fluctuations, in order to test the efficiency of the temperature control.
The images acquired by the cameras can be seen in figure 2 (WI) and figure 3 (WE).
The work to develop the digital part of the temperature control setup has already started by Alain (entry 50973). After that, the tests on the temperature control could start.
At present time, WI and WE HWSs are powerd ON; the corresponding SLEDs are OFF.
