Greetings Raith Users:

Today we experienced a fatal SW error due to a unknown problem between the RAITH SW and HW.

 The system is currently in a critical state and users are asked to not to attempt anything with the system this evening or overnight.

This occurred at the beginning of a load/unload sequence and we are hoping it will time out to a more normal load lock emergency error.  Raith has been called and will be sending me more fun things for me to test repair in the morning.
 

Thank you,

James Conway
