Wikis and JIRA tickets associated with this system and its measurements:
Temperature Sensors of ALMA Antennas: Wiki developed by Giorgio Siringo which describes the temperature measurement systems on all ALMA antenna types. This link includes sections on the DV06, DV07, and DV08 special and DV08 very special cases (extra sensors).
DV08 Special Case Temperature Sensor System: An additional 80 temperature sensors, in addition to the 15 installed on all DV antennas, have been installed on DV08. Very detailed description, including CAD drawings of locations.
"Almost 24 hours temperature trend from 2011-02-08 16:00. More than 8 degree temperature difference is seen. The weather condition was partly cloudy, and the antenna was kept on the stow position."
"The large spread up (or more) to 8 C is consistent with previous measurements. It could be the case to investigate if changing the antenna orientation respect to the rising sun it would makes any change."
"One can notice that the antenna temperatures are higher than the ambient air temperature."
"It would be useful to collect data when the humidity is low. I notice a trend that the panels that are looking towards the sky are warmer during daytime than the ones at the back structure (the difference being very variable due to the sun irradiation). But in the night this is reversed (with a constant temperature offset between front and rear sensors), maybe because the sky is much colder than the ground. It may be that the antenna is more coupled to radiation from the sky and the ground than to the air temperature. At least that is what the measurements suggest."
Extracting TMS System Temperature Measurements
Using Cristian's getTMCTemperature.py script I can extract all temperature sensors. Example:
