Initial Operation: Safety Mechanisms
Safety Interlock-A receptacle labeled INTERLOCK on the back of the control
panel chasis (magnetic field control) is provided to
interlock the high voltage supply to other equipment or safety
protective devices. The terminals of the receptacle must be short-circuited before the
high voltage supply can be energized.
Magnetic Coil Thermostat-The magnetic focus coil's thermostat (used only
for electron beam tube experimments)is a normally closed switch which opens if the magnet
becomes overheated (160 F). This should normally be defeated for dielectric breakdown
experiments or whenever electron beam tubes will not be used.
