2018-01-29 (Zeiss LSM 510-meta #2): Zeiss 510-Meta: Network connection issue

The 510-meta system is operating as usual, but there is no network connection. Therefore, any files on the local temp folder cannot be copied to the TempStorage4 server. All data on the system will be saved until the issue is resolved. A service request has been placed with BSNO. Thank you for your patience.

1/29/2018 2:50pm (UPDATE) >> Leo FESEM: Chiller repaired, SEM back online.
The chiller has been repaired by an outside contractor and the SEM system is now back online. Thank you very much for your patience. If you are a certified user, please use the webcalendar to reserve microscope time; if you are not a certified user, please schedule imaging time with Microscope Facility staff via microscopy@jhmi.edu.
Thank you all.

****************************************

1/17/2018 11:31AM >> Leo FESEM: Not available until further notice.
The Leo FESEM is not available due to chiller issues. As a result, we had to shut the microscope down. We will keep everyone updated and let you know as soon as we have the microscope back up and running.

2018-01-12 (Zeiss LSM 780 FCS): Zeiss LSM780, 561 laser replaced

2018-01-05 (Leo FESEM,Philips CM120 TEM): Chiller swap: LEO offline, Philips working again.

This afternoon, we swapped the chiller for the LEO FESEM with the chiller for the Philips CM120, which is broken. Hence, the Philips is now operational, but the LEO is now offline.

Until the chiller gets repaired/replaced (waiting for technician visits), we plan to time-share the chiller between the LEO and other instruments.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

2018-01-02 (Philips CM120 TEM): Chiller broken

Fri 1/5/18 Update: We swapped the chiller from the LEO SEM to the Philips CM120 so that the Philips is now functional and the LEO offline. The broken chiller was examined by JHU Facilities, but they can't fix it. A contractor will come next week to see what they can do.

Wed 1/2/18: The chiller for the Philips has stopped working. Both the water pump and the condenser are not running, despite being powered. We're waiting for JHU Facilities to examine the equipment and provide their assessment.
