Power Control Unit (PCU) during assembly.  CalTech uses two separate systems: one for azimuth pointing servos (550watts) & one for instrument operation (220watts).  This unit represents the fifth and final generation.  A LCD which displays all telemetry outputs, similar to the unit developed for the Flare Genesis project, (18 elements of current, voltage & temperature) is in process and will be added to the existing PCU on a remote cable.
