IMACS instrument electronics fab and assembly


IMACS has two main electronics enclosures, which sit with the instrument on the Nasmyth platform. The enclosures will be thermally insulated, and cooled with an air-to-liquid heat exchanger (shown at the far left in this image).


The enclosures contain the custom 19" racks with the instrument control electronics, as well as commericial 19" racks, like the Physik Instrumente (blue-edged) racks show in the left enclosure below.
