The week of March 3

During the last week they were able to communicate with all of the limit switches and sensors for the X tracker motion. Late in the week (including some weekend work) they installed the Y motors and were able to test that both the fine motion and the “antigravity” drive.

This week they hope to start integrating the motions in both X and Y as well as installing the end stops for the tracker hard stops. If all goes well they will install hexapod test weights late in the week and check that all motion is smooth with this extra added wait. Meanwhile some of the mechanical team is putting the hexapods back together.

Next week will be dedicated to getting the hexapods in place.
