Mirror Cover Status

Thursday, February 7, 2019 11:14 AM

Problem(s) Encountered:

When I did 'tx dropleaf open', it started to do its thing and was opening on the camera view, the log gave a message " done interlocks estop=off floor=off pier=off tilt=off". I contacted Justin to see what it could be but not sure; those items show a green color by them on the control panel.

Also, I just opened the mirrors and once they were finishing opening up, "ERROR mirror mirror timeout" popped up on the log- I couldn't find any documentation for that one either... I am just hesitant to continue opening & wanted to see if it is okay to do so/what these messages mean.


Most of these are simply status statements that occasionally come through.  They can be ignored.  The exception here is the mirror covers. Something strange was going on, likely with the “Closed” limit switch.  It has been adjusted and appears to be working correctly now.  However, this may be an early sign that the switch itself is starting to fail.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
