Cascade community:

Jim McVittie has found a temporary replacement for the light source on 
Cascade.  To prevent damage from overheating, please note his comment 
that you should leave the illuminator in the fan position for a couple 
of minutes before turning it completely off.

Of course a work of thanks to Jim for a creative and effective solution 
is always in order.  Thanks, JIm.

Happy probing,

I have borrowed a fiber illuminator from Tom Lee's lab and made an adapter for our fiber. So we now have a microscope light on the Cascade. When turning off the lamp, please stop at the fan position for a minute to cool the lamp before going to the off position.

Dear cascade users,

We had a malfunctioning of the lamp source yesterday and have found out
with the help of Jim McVitte that one of the triac component on the circuit
board has been damaged beyond repair. We have already ordered the
replacement part and we expect it to arrive around next Monday. Hopefully
we can bring up the system by mid-next week.
