A) PLANE END
  1. Adjust the black clamps on the strain relieves.2.
  2. Clean the detector side of the optical cable with the appropriate lens tissue using ethyl alcohol.
  3. Hook the optical cable and the LI cable  to the  module :
    1. Clean (as done above) the optical connector on the module.
    2. Place the thicker and thinner dowel on the optical connector on the module.
    3. Adjust the black rubber band on the optical cable connector.
    4. Place the sock on the detector end of the optical cable.
    5. i.Use optical grease between the plane and optical cable connection.
    6. Screw the optical cable on the module. Make sure you use washers to prevent the screws from damaging the connector.
    7. Hook the LI cable on the ashtray after passing it through the sock (the length of the LI cables should determine in what strip manifold they are connected, for the spectrometer region the J manifold receives 3 LI fibers, the fibers should increase monotonically).
    8. viii.Place the felt on the most downstream part of the ashtray.
    9. viii.Use black tape to secure the LI cables on the optical cable connector, just blow the optical connector label.
    10. Use cable ties to tie the LI cable to the optical cable.
    11. Use cable ties to tie the sock on the optical cable (approximately 3 inches away from the optical cable connector).
    12. Secure  the optical cable closing the clamps (Make sure everything is done properly since it is not easy to open the clamp once it is closed).
    13. Use cable ties to tie up the LI cable with the optical cable BUT NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH since these two will be going to different racks (the optical cable to the one with the Alner Boxes and the LI cable to the one with the LI pulser).

  1. Screw  the strain relieves on the plane AND make sure (using an optical cable) that they are in the right position and of the right length.  
  2. Check for light leaks connecting every Alner box end of the optical cable to the special optical cable that is read out by the PMT sitting on the “special” light leak testing rack.

B) Alner box end
  1. Hook the optical cable to the Alner Box :
    1. i.Clean (as done above) the optical connector on the Alner box and the Optical cable.
    2. Place the thicker and thinner dowel on the optical connector on the Alner box connector.
    3. Adjust the black rubber ribbon on the optical cable connector.
    4. Screw the optical cable on the Alner Box connector. Make sure you use washers to prevent the screws from damaging the connector.
C)  LI  Pulser end
  1.   Hook the LI cable to the LI Box :
    1. Clean (as done above) the optical connector of the LI cable and on the LI Box
    2. Screw the LI cable on the LI box according to the appropriate scheme : 
                                          SPECTROMETER LI BOX

                            TOP HALF              281 276 261 256 241 236 …
                            BOTTOM HALF        271 266 251 246 231 226 …
