The main system mechanical pump has failed over the weekend and we cannot reach sufficient backing pressure to allow turbo pump to reach proper operation speed.  Software in turbo shuts down system and ventes main chamber to air.
Gun Vacuum maintained...  :-)
Mechanical pump and other possisbly needed parts were requested at 5:30 AM today from New York State by phone.  Parts have been shipped in last hour through Fed-X for tomorrow delivery.  Raith Field service is also now scheduled for 10 AM tommorrow.
Down and off line to Users through 3 PM tomorrow Tuesday April 20, 2010.
