9ID A Hutch Diagram

The following MUST be done to search this hutch:

1. Make sure that both hutch doors are open. If one or both is shut, the searching process cannot take place.

2. Enter the hutch through the downstream door (DS2) and locate the search box labeled "Search Box 1." This is Number 1 on the above map. You should see a yellow light flashing here.

3. When you are prepared to shut the hutch, check the area around the first search box to be sure that no people are present.

4. If the area is empty, press the green button on the 1st search box. The yellow light now stops flashing and is solid yellow.

5. At this time, an audio alarm will sound instructing anyone else in the hutch to exit.

6. Exit the hutch through the downstream door (DS2) and close the door using the door control box (DC2).

7. Proceed into the hutch through the upstream door (DS1) and locate the search box labeled "Search Box 2." This is Number 2 on the above map. You should see a yellow light flashing here.

8. Check the area around the second search box to be sure that no people are present.

9. If the area is empty, press the green button on the second search box. The yellow light now stops flashing and is solid yellow.

10. Move out of the hutch through the open door (DS1), making sure that no one enters.

11. Close the upstream door by holding down the green button on the door control box (DC1). Be sure that no one enters the hutch while you do this.

12. When the door closes and locks, you will see the two green lights on the operating box light up. At this point, you have successfully completed the hutch search.
