Greetings Raith Users

The water flow to the RAITH system is now very low and the system is in 
a critical state. See message below...

Users are requested to call me immediately if there is a problem 
encountered. System is currently up in Yellow light mode and Users are 
working on the system through the evening and morning.
I will attempt to get a RAITH service person here early next week if the 
system remains up for use until then.

Thank you for your support!

James Conway

Good Evening,
Numerous I/O problems on LEO computer with alarms and errors in vacuum sensing and E/O card likely related to the poor water flow.
The system was reset twice -- once in yellow button standby mode and second by using the red button reset manually.
I then brought up the vacuum system pumping on the RAITH chamber Turbo and then the Ion pumps followed by a service run up of the FE-GUN.
I expect this system will come down hard in the next few hours to days if the water flow does not improve. Current temp of E/O card at system is 38 degrees C. Flow is below 0.1 lpm.
System is currently up and available to users.  Please call me if the system vents or the gun shuts down.
We never sleep,
James Conway
