Week of January 27

Last week the team controlled the upper X screw for the first moves. The electrical team put the new Az wrap in place. Over the weekend we had a one-woman-team come in and paint the remaining weldments.

This week the mechanical team should finish getting the lower X components in place: encoder, lead screw, and energy chain. After those lifts occur the structure will be locked out and the temporary test cables will be removed and the final cables for the tracker will be installed. This is likely to take the rest of the week and perhaps the first few days of next week.

This will allow us a few days to test the upper and lower X motion both independently and working together in preparation for the New Tracker lift mid-Feb.
