TCS START Button Does Not Turn on TCS

Thursday, October 15, 2015 2:28 PM

Problem(s) Encountered:

The START controller switch on the TCS would not turn on due to an apparent issue with the telescope platform.


The telescope interlock was manually overridden (switch is up in the Telescope Control Junction Box).  This should not be done without consulting with MDM staff first.  The problem arises from a limit switch not being actuated as the platform is lowered.  This switch has been adjusted and should actuate correctly now.
