-  - Close gate to source area.  Orange lights on Glassman supplies should come on at gate closing. ​ (If not, check other gate on the other side of the accelerator;​ both must be secured.)  +  ​- Remove grounding hook from power supply platform and hang on gate before closing.  
-  - Use long plexi rod to turn on top 2 Glassmans (target ​and extractor) by pushing green buttons. +  - Close both gates to source area.  Orange lights on Glassman supplies should come on at gate closing. ​ (If not, check other gate on the other side of the accelerator;​ both must be secured.)  
 +  - Press the doorbell button ​on top the Pelletron AC Power Center. ​ The Extractor ​and Target Glassman supplies should indicate Voltage Control with red lights.

-  - Turn on and set the Del main extractor supply to the desired voltage for the particular buncher setting. +  - Turn on and set the **Del main extractor** supply to the desired voltage for the particular buncher setting. 
-  - Set the Glassman extractor power supply to 12.5 KV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control ​milliampres" light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs serviced. +  - Turn up the **ionizer** heater. ​  The ionizer operates at 21-22 amps.  Keep in mind that the current will fall slightly as the ionizer gets warmer. ​ Keep adjusting the current until the ionizer is stable at 21-22 A. It should take about 1 minute to reach 21 A from the standby value of 10 A. 
-  - Set the Glassman target power supply to 6.5 kV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control ​milliampres" light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs serviced. +  - Turn up the Cesium **feed tube** heater to 0.450 amperes. ​  
-  - Slowly turn up the ionizer heater((This source has a HELICAL ionizer.)) in small steps. ​  The ionizer operates at 21 amperes. It should take about ten (10) minutes to reach 21 from the standby value of 10 A. Keep in mind that the amperage ​will fall slightly as the ionizer gets warmer. ​ Keep adjusting the current until the ionizer is stable ​at 21 A. +  - Set the cesium **reservoir** heater current to **0.315** Amps. This is an approximate value above the needed power level.  ​ 
-  - Turn up the Cs feed tube heater to 0.450 amperes.  ​ +  - Set the Glassman ​**extractor** power supply to 12.5 KV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control ​milliamperes" light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs to be serviced. 
-  - Set the cesium reservoir heater ​to 0.380.� This should be enough to give ones of microamps beam for p and d.    A setting of about 0.420 should produce tens of microamps.� Cs vaporization starts at a temperature of ~80° Celsius. ​  The maximum reservoir temperature should not exceed 100° Celsius.� The reservoir current should not exceed 0.500 +  - Set the Glassman ​**target** power supply to 6.5 kV. Check to be sure the current is less than about 5 milliamps and the "​control ​milliamperes" light is NOT lit. High current indicates that the source needs to be serviced. ​ A newly installed pellet may cause instability for the first hour or so, but will become ​stable. 
-  - Tune the beam with the inflection magnet, source lens (usually about 1.5 kV), lens A, and 2Y steerer. +  - Set the Glassman **lens** power supply ​to 1.5 kV
-  - Monitor the target and extractor currents: target current should be around 2.5 milliamps, and no more than 5 mA.+  - **Tune the beam with the inflection magnet, source lens (usually about 1.5 kV), einzel ​lens A, and 2Y steerer.**  The 2X steerer should be neutral (5.00 on dial) as X steering is be done by the inflection magnet at this stage
 +  - Monitor the target and extractor currents: target current should be around 2.5 milliamps, and no more than 5 mA.  If target current gets too high, reduce the cesium reservoir setting.

-  - Turn down the reservoir ​heater ​power supply.  ​Off is about 0.070 A+  - **Cesium ​reservoir**: The reservoir has a temperature controller that turns the power on/off as needed for a constant temperature.  ​The controller ​is located next to the analog temperature meter on the source power platform. ​ The red numbers are the measured temperature,​ the green numbers are the set point temperature,​ there is a small red light that indicates when the controller is calling for power. ​ The reservoir current switches between ​0.150A and .315A as directed by the controller. 
-  - Wait for the reservoir temperature to drop below 80° C.  ​+  - Wait until the reservoir controller'​s red power light is on and you can see about .315A reservoir current on the meter, run the reservoir current down on the digital meter. ​ Make sure that you see controller red light on with minimal amps of current
