Moving overview: NanoLab, Fact or Fiction, and Reading Area. These exhibits are shipped on seven rolling crates with casters. The crates are all 42 ½” wide. One (with two corner cabinets with motors) weighs about 500lbs, the rest weigh 400lbs or less. Elevators: rolling crates will fit into an elevator that is 7’ deep with 7’ tall x 43” wide opening. If necessary, the crates can be disassembled, then the components unloaded and moved with pallet jack and/or dollies in smaller elevators. The cabinets with attached walls are 6’5” tall.

1

Rolling Crates: Five of the rolling crates are 42½” wide x 68” long and 83” tall. They might fit through standard double-doors that are 7’ tall (you would probably have to remove some door closing hardware). • Two of these crates each hold two NanoLab corner cabinets with attached walls (31 ½”” x 31 ½”x 6’5” tall). • Two crates each hold one NanoLab entry cabinet with attached walls (Play nano scientixt, & What do you wear in a clean room?) that are 31 1/2” x 48” x 6’5” tall. • One crate holds Fact or Fiction display cabinet with attached wall panel.

One rolling crate is 42½” wide x 68” long and 68” ” tall, with the Fact or Fiction building table in it.

2

The seventh rolling crate is 42½” wide x 84” long x 71” tall. It holds the three “bridge wall panels” for the NanoLab, and three back wall panels for Fact or Fiction (fourth wall ships attached to the display cabinet), plus the six stools and bookshelf unit for the Reading Area.

Moving Individual components . Individual components can be unloaded from the rolling crates, and can all be moved through a standard doorway that is at least 36” wide and 6’8” tall, using a pallet jack. Two people can comfortably lift and move any of the components; they typically weigh under ~100lbs, aside from three NanoLab corner cabinets with motors that weigh ~150 lbs each.

3

There is also a small lifter with the exhibition that is handy for helping to move individual cabinets during setup, and for adjusting heights.

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout LAYOUT considerations: Clearance: the back wall of the NanoLab can go up against a gallery wall to make it easier to hide the extension cords to the two corner units. The NanoLab ideally will have a lot of clearance around at least one of its left or right sides. The Reading Area is intended to go on the left or right side of the NanoLab, with two NanoLab banners facing the reading area. You’d want at least 8’ of space there, including the bookshelf and the round rug that is 6” in diameter, plus clearance for visitors to walk around.

However, the Reading Area can be located elsewhere in the exhibition (with the bookcase up against a wall of some kind). If necessary, the NanoLab can go against your gallery walls on the left or right sides; during setup you’ll need several feet around the outside of the NanoLab, so that someone can get behind the walls to get to the hardware to attach the three 4’ tall “bridge panels” that go between the four corner stations; then you’ll need to lift/slide those assembled section(s) into place against your wall(s) before attaching the remaining cabinet sections-- protecting your floors as necessary. Almost all of the banners are single-sided and face into the NanoLab to provide instructions and information for each exhibit. There are two banners facing the outside on both the left and right sides; one “How Small is Nano” banner about scale, and one “What Happens in the NanoLab?” banner. Sound: the video on the back wall of the NanoLab has audio playing on a speaker mounted above the monitor. All the remaining stations have audio information at them, but with headphones for visitors to listen. All the audio is in either English or Spanish, as selected by the visitor. Electricity: two extension cords need to be provided to male receptacles underneath the “Many at a Time” and “Self Assembly” corner cabinets at the back wall of the NanoLab; the rest of the NanoLab has built-in wiring/connections that get powered from those cabinets. 5

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout NanoLab Activity stations: NanoLab is an immersive mini-exhibition with a variety of experiences for museum visitors of all ages. In the entry area, children dress up and role play as nano scientists. The activities and graphics introduce the concept that some nano scientists work in special laboratories known as clean rooms, which have a carefully controlled environment. Intro- Audio: Introduction to the NanoLab.

What do you wear in a NanoLab? Visitors can put on a real lab coat, goggles and disposable gloves. The labcoats have namebadges of real nanoscientists. Visitors can see themselves in the mirror there.

6

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout Play Nano scientist. This station has a pretend sink, washer and oven. Visitors can take a pretend wafer (laminated photo of a real wafer) and pretend to process it.

In the main lab area, visitors use four interactive exhibits and watch a video that introduces the metric scale down by successive powers of ten, and shows nanoscientists at work in a real clean room. The exhibits and video introduce basic methods and tools used in research on nanoscale devices and materials. Three stations in the inside of the NanoLab allow visitors to experiment with three different ways that scientists build with atoms at the Nanoscale: (1) One By One activity (bottom up) (2) Lots of Atoms activity (top down) (3) Atoms Build on their Own (self-assembly)

7

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout One By One: Visitors put their hand into a glove, and reach in a dome. They use a pair of forceps to pickup metal balls (“atoms”) one at a time and place them into plastic bar inside the dome that has a pattern of dimples; when all the dimples are filled in, it will say NANOLAB. Visitors can tilt the bar to empty the atoms. This activity is more challenging as the base of the dome is vibrating, simulating the motion of atoms at the atomic scale.

Lots of Atoms: Visitors put their hand into a glove, and reach in a dome to grab a plastic bar which they can use to move metal balls (“atoms”) around; at some locations of the base, the balls cluster together automatically in eight locations that form a square (there are magnets underneath the base to attract the steel balls). This is more challenging as the base of the dome is vibrating, simulating the motion of atoms at the atomic scale.

8

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout Atoms Build on their Own (Self Assembly): Visitors put their hand into a glove, and reach in a dome and move the balls (“atoms”) around and watch as they form small clusters; in this station only, some balls are magnetic, while most are plain steel, so the balls tend to clump together into sections packed neatly. This is more challenging as the base of the dome is vibrating, simulating the motion of atoms at the atomic scale.

Seeing Tiny things (Atomic Force Microscope): Two visitors work together here. There are four different metal blocks, each with a different pattern of raised plastic balls. One visitor puts a block into a holder, and slides it into the dome where you cannot see the pattern; the second visitor puts their hand into a glove, and reaches into the dome to feel the raised dots, trying to determine what the pattern is. Pushing the button at this station turns on a light underneath, that illuminates the sample.

9

NanoLab & Reading area: overview and layout Video: A narrated set of photos introducing visitors to scale by zooming in by successive factors of ten, followed by a video of scientists getting dressed in clean room suits and working in a real clean room. Visitors push either English or Espanol buttons to start the player; once started the player will go through the entire set of photos and video (about 6 minutes total), before the buttons are active again.. There are “attractor screens” that cycle through automatically when the video is not playing.

In the reading area, visitors read books related to nanoscale science and nanotechnology. A wall graphic and picture book called “How small is nano?” use the human body to explore relative size.

NanoLab setup IMPORTANT: adjust leveling feet on the three corner cabinets with vibrating black drumheads so the countertops are level; otherwise the tabletop will vibrate a lot. The leveling feet will arrive all the way up (controlling the height for the shipping carts). Use ½” wrench. Level and ½” wrench in with setup parts.

14

NanoLab setup Remove the short 6” pieces of cover over electrical fittings on the corner cabinets at the bottom, so there is space for the molex connectors and cable that stick out a few inches from the bridge panels that go between the cabinets. Squeeze the plastic cover, tilt it up, and lift it out of the channel.

There will be five covers to remove: connections that go to either side of the narrow bridge panels, and one on the left side of the Atoms Build on their Own cabinet (for power to the TV). You do not need to remove the right hand cover under Lots of Atoms (to the left of the bridge panel with TV) as it doesn’t have a power cord. The two narrow bridge panels are oriented so that the electric cover at the bottom is facing the inside of the NanoLab. The panels are not interchangeable: look at the bottom at the electrical connectors, and identify which location each panel goes into by matching the male and female pins in the electrical connectors in the bridge panel and cabinets. To attach a bridge wall: it is helpful to use the lifter to hold the wall during setup. Slide it underneath the corner cabinet and bring it up until it just touches the bottom bar, and you can use it as a height reference as well as support for setting the bridge panel in place. Then move the lifter over and rest the bridge panel on the lifter, which will get it at right height.

15

NanoLab setup *********************************** LIFTER INSTRUCTIONS: Insert handle, and tighten nut.

To lower it, turn the top handle counterclockwise (as viewed from the top) about ½ turn, and it will lower itself down.

To lift, turn handle clockwise ~1/2 turn until it stops, then pump handle up and down.

***********************************

16

NanoLab setup A second person can go around to the outside and secure the panel in place in the four corners. Line up one side of the bridge panel with the corner wall, and slide the bridge panel in place so the fingers go into the channel in the post for the corner wall.

Then use the Octanorm star drive tool to tighten up the screw in the top channel:

FYI, the fingers are closed when first inserted into the channel in the vertical post, then turning the star screw spreads the fingers apart inside the channel in the post, securing the bridge panel to the post.

17

NanoLab setup Repeat at the bottom channel:

Repeat for the other side of the wall. Once all three bridge walls are in place, you can make the electrical connections. In order to have enough play to make the connection, you’ll need to squeeze and pry out part of the long piece of cover over the cord running across the bottom of the corner cabinet:

There will be connections on both sides of Atoms Build on Their Own (left side to take power to TV, right side to power to Seeing Tiny Things lights), and one connection for each of One By One, Many at a Time, and Seeing Tiny Things.

18

NanoLab setup Once the molex connectors are pushed together, then slide the wires in place in the short cover section. You must orient the molex connector so that the pointed, tapered side faces so it will go into the slot in the metal bars,

and then line up the plastic connector so that it is in the slot cut in the plastic cover.

Put the short cover in place- tilt it up at a angle and squeeze to get the plastic tabs into the metal channel. The push the raceway back down in place across the corner cabinet, starting from the far side which is still in the channel.

19

NanoLab setup

The four samples for Seeing Tiny Things should be inside glove (for shipping); place them in their holder.

The four Nano Lab exhibit stations should now be assembled together with bridge walls. The samples for Seeing Tiny Things should be shipped inside the glove: set them in their tray.

20

NanoLab setup Next, bring the two Entry area cabinets (with attached walls) to the front of NanoLab: Play Nano scientist and “What do you wear in a NanoLab?”.

Place Play Nano scientist (with sink) next to One by One corner cabinet. Lift up Play Nanoscientists posts an inch or so (the lifter is really handy for this) and line up three sets of yellow plastic cleats in the channels (you’ll probably need to do the front and back sides separately) .

21

NanoLab setup Then push the posts together and snug- a soft clamp (that doesn’t scratch the powdercoated posts) can be helpful:

Repeat for What do you wear in a Nano lab? dress-up area.

22

NanoLab setup There are three 6’ long pieces of post that go horizontally between the two sides. Two are plain, one has plastic strips attached to it. Plain bars go between the posts for the two Entry areas. Slide fingers in place slot at each end, and tighten fittings.

Bar at entrance to NanoLab:

The third bar goes between the corner cabinet posts; it has plastic strips attached to it. Remove the cover (it is velcroed in place) to get access to star screws, and tighten. Then replace cover.

23

NanoLab setup Put the four top fittings in place to secure corner cabinet posts and Entry cabinet posts together at the top.

Electricity for Play Nano scientist cabinet: open front access panel under sink (unlock at top, and panel lifts out), and under One at a Time (unlock, and remove the two screws at the top-- 4mm or 5/32” Allen wrench).

Feed power cord from power strip under sink through grommets in Pretend Chip area and into One at a Time cabinet, and plug into power strip there. Replace the two access panels.

24

NanoLab setup POWER to NanoLab: bring extension cords to recessed male receptacles underneath Lots of Atoms, and Atoms build on their Own. The exhibits will all power up on their own when you turn on power to your breaker.

VOLUME: volume for video can be adjusted with access hole in the back of the TV housing (with a pair of pliers, or forceps from Entry Play Nano scientist area.

25

NanoLab setup Entry areas: Play Nano Scientist pretend chip area should have pretend chips, tweezers, trays, and a trash can; there are a number of plastic tubs with extra parts, some may be stored inside the Fact or Fiction building cabinet.

Stock dressup area What do you wear in a Nano Lab? with labcoats, gloves, safety glasses and a trash can.

There is a list of consumable parts & their sources with the technical manual. There is also a USB thumb drive with the plastic tubs (attached to a 4-5” piece of red plastic). that has this file.

26

Reading Area: setup Reading Area: Locate components: Two couches, in shipping crate with Fact or Fiction display cabinet Rug 6’ round, red/orange rug, in large plastic bag, in shipping crate with Fact or Fiction display cabinet Bookshelf unit, in shipping crate with wall panels Plastic tub with books (should be with a number of other tubs with spare labcoats, etc. in the crates with the Play NanoScientist and Dressup Area

27

NanoLab takedown NanoLab takedown Unplug your two extension cords from underneath Lots of Atoms, and Atoms Build on Their Own. Remove the short 8” pieces of cover over electrical fittings on the corner cabinets. Squeeze the cover and you can tilt it out of channel.

You will need to also pull up some of the long section underneath the corner cabinet, in order to get the molex connector and wires out of the gap in the cover:

There will be five covers to remove: connections that go to either side of the narrow bridge panels, and one on the right side of the large bridge panel (with TV). you do not need to remove the right hand cover under Lots of Atoms (to the left of the bridge panel with TV) as it doesn’t have a power cord.

28

NanoLab takedown pull apart gently- do NOT grab wires, but hold onto connectors. DISCONNECT molex connectors-

Replace plastic covers after you’ve taken the bridge panels off (or tape them to the appropriate countertops). Open front access panel under sink (unlock at top, and panel lifts out), and under One by One (unlock, and remove the two screws at the top-- 4mm or 5/32” Allen wrench). Unplug cord from power strip under chip cabinet, that is plugged into the power strip under One at a Time. Replace access covers.

29

NanoLab takedown Lift out fittings that hold Pretend area posts to corner cabinet posts, and pack with setup parts tub.

Remove three horizontal 6’ bars that span the cabinets—use Octonorm tool and loosen star screws by turning counterclockwise (remove cover from strip wall, which is velcroed in place, to get to star screw, then put it back in place.

Roll up plastic strips around their bar.

30

NanoLab takedown LIFTER INSTRUCTIONS: To lower, turn the top handle counterclockwise (as viewed from the top) about ½ turn, and it will lower itself down.

To raise something, turn handle clockwise ~1/2 turn until it stops, then pump handle up and down.

31

NanoLab takedown Lift UP on Pretend area cabinet where it adjoins the corner cabinets, to get it off yellow plastic cleats on corner cabinet post (at least ½” or so). It is helpful to use the lifting tool again (you’ll probably need to do the front and back sides separately, and may need to go back and forth) .

The two cabinets may rise up together; in that case you can reach up and push down on the corner cabinet post:

32

NanoLab takedown Push electric cord from Play Nano Scientist through grommet hole and into its cabinet.

To remove the three bridge panels, it helps to use the lifter to support the panel.

A second person can go around the outside and use the Octanorm tool to turn the star screws to loosen the fingers that hold the bridge panel to the corner posts:

33

NanoLab takedown Hold onto panel as you do this:

PACKUP PARTS; Put fittings that hold two posts together, and tools and key, back in setup tub (which is packed in Fact or Fiction building cabinet.)

Tidy up labcoats and pretend chips, etc. before loading rolling crates. Tape drawers closed for shipping:

34

NanoLab takedown Put samples for Seeing Tiny Things inside glove for shipping.

LEVELING FEET: they all need to be adjusted to their lowest level so they fit properly in the rolling crates; that way the top board will grab and secure the top of each wall in place for shipping. You can do this with the ½” wrench. DO NOT TILT the three corner cabinets with the metal balls- balls will end up jamming the turntable etc.

35

NanoLab takedown You can tilt the other cabinets, and it is a lot faster if you use two people: one can tilt the cabinets while a second person runs the leveling feet up: a T30 star drive (the Octanorm tool or a straight T30 in a screwdriver-style handle) works very nicely as there is a T30 recess in the bottom of the leveling foot.

Only Seeing Tiny Things corner cabinet can be tilted.

36

NanoLab takedown When you’re all done, please pack up tools in small shoebox, and setup parts in larger tub; place tools inside bigger box, and store inside Building table cabinet.

Don’t forget the keys!

Leave a cabinet key out, taped to cabinet or in sink, as you lock the access door!

Bottom tub stays here, with extra hardware etc.

37

NanoLab takedown There are plastic tubs for packing up the books and extra parts:

There is a plastic bag for the rug for the reading area:

NanoLab

What do you find in a nano lab? Clean rooms have special tools and equipment

What happens in the NanoLab?

Pretend to be a scientist and make tiny things

In a clean room, scientists learn about and make things that are too small to see. Silicon wafer

Why keep labs clean?

Pretend to work in a nano lab

Dust can mess everything up! Pieces of dust that are too small to see with just our eyes are gigantic compared to tiny wires in a chip.

Tiny pieces of dust can cause problems when you’re making very small things

Even a tiny speck of dust can make a chip stop working.

1

Use the tweezers to pick up a pretend wafer and put it on a tray. It’s slippery — don’t drop it!

What are computer chips made of?

Atom

Computer chips are built on flat silicon wafers. Silicon wafers are perfect for making computer chips since they are smooth and can conduct electricity.

Silicon crystal

Scientists build tiny things with atoms.

A silicon wafer is made from silicon atoms.

2

Put the tray in the machine and pretend to wash the wafer.

3

Put the tray in the oven and pretend to bake the wafer.

Nano labs are clean To make tiny things, scientists need to work in a very clean place. These special work spaces are called clean rooms. To keep dust out of clean rooms, scientists put on special head-to-toe suits that cover everything but their faces. They also use special supplies, like dustfree paper and pens. No pencils are allowed—they create too much dust! Sticky mats on the floor keep feet clean.

4

Look at the tiny patterns on the wafer with a magnifying glass.

Silicon Wafer

How are computer chips made?

Scientists wear special clothes.

To make computer chips, scientists print tiny patterns on a silicon wafer. They add many layers of patterns to the wafer. The process includes coating the wafer with chemicals, exposing it to light, and baking it in special ovens.

Special pens and paper release fewer chemicals and fibers into the air

Scientists use special tools and equipment.

Tejal Desai’s Group at University of California San Francisco

Creating tiny new medical devices to cure diabetes, deliver drugs, and grow new heart muscle

Where are nano labs? Researchers and technicians work in nano labs at universities and in industry. They learn about tiny things and make new small tools and materials.

Stanley Williams’ Group at Hewlett-Packard

Inventing tiny new circuits, switches, and other parts for computers and electronics

People who work in clean rooms put on a lot of gear before they enter the lab. They get dressed in a special room. They even get dressed in a special order! This helps keep the lab clean.

NanoLab- changing gloves To change gloves: You need to undo the four ¼-20 screws on the front ring; they go into locknuts inside the dome.

One way to do this is with a long 12mm socket (with tools for exhibition); you normally need a 7/16” socket for ¼-20 nuts, but here you need something a bit larger to account for the thickness of the glove fabric. There is a handy hand-held ratchet with 12mm socket shipped with the tools for the exhibition for this task. Reach inside the glove with this tool to get hold of the nut (check that the ratchet is set up to unscrew), and then with your other hand undo the screw on the outside (4mm or 5/32” allen wrench).

NanoLab- changing gloves Slide off the back ring and you can bring the gloves and top assembly out. Look carefully and see if there is anything special about the white ring: for some of the exhibits the opening in the clear dome is close to the bottom and one side of the plastic ring is ground down to fit; if so, you need to keep track and remember that as you put a new glove in place.

Bottom of this ring is ground off here, for Atoms Build on their Own

Undo the four setscrews that hold the glove sandwiched in place between the outer ring and a piece of white PVC pipe.

NanoLab- changing gloves Then slide inner piece of pipe back in, tighten set screws, and finally trim excess fabric.

Slide back in hole. Bring back ring in place, then reach and grab nuts and get them started on each screw. Tighten using 12mm socket again to hold onto the nut—do not overtighten.

Nanolab: sewing gloves Cut out two layers of fabric at once.

Pin. Sew about 3/8” seam. Snip inside corners particularly (notch between thumb and first finger, and at flare at cuff end), also around outside corners of hand.

Finish edges-- 3 stitch zigzag—pull apart fabric at snips so it can be turned inside out later.

Turn right side out. Reinforce by stitching just inside seam, along fingertips and down to notch and partway up thumb.

NanoLab- dome & access to mechanisms ACCESS to the inside motor-driven mechanism You can leave the dome assembled. Open up the front access door. Undo the four square drive screws (#2 drive, included with tools) that go from the underside of the cabinet into the center section of the top of the table—two screws are at the front of the cabinet, and one is along each edge about ½ way to the back corner. Then lift the orange tabletop section off. LEAVE IN PLACE: the front screw on each side stays in place & holds the triangular countertops. UNSCREW: the backmost screw on each side holds the center section.

When you’re ready to put it back together, you can wiggle the top a bit to get the shaft to line up in the bearing of the ½” white Sintra disk. Screw back in place.

See separate detailed documentation on the motor, mechanism, and electronics.

NanoLab- dome & access to mechanisms To get access inside the dome: KEEP TRACK of the ORIENTATION of the parts as you take it apart, in order to put it back together. If the opening in the dome is close to the bottom of the dome, you’ll first need to remove the white plastic ring and glove; see instructions for changing gloves to remove white plastic ring (there’s a nice tool for this job). If you’re taking apart One by One, you first need to remove the handle/threaded rods that go into the white bar inside: reach inside with one hand to hold the white bar, and you can unthread the post/knob.

To take off the white metal ring (a cake pan originally) undo the four screws that hold the outer white metal ring in place; 4mm or 5/32” allen wrench for the ¼-20 screws. You may need to pry up the metal rim to be able to lift it off.

2

NanoLab- dome & access to mechanisms Then undo the square drive screws (there is a #2 bit, with setup parts) BY HAND that holds the clear acrylic dome and white plastic shroud in place on a wooden ring., and lift them off Mark the orientation first (if not already done)!

You can see the wooden ring and turntable that the acrylic dome is mounted to:

The turntable allows visitors to turn the dome/glove/opening by about 60 degrees, to accommodate visitors that are left-handed as well as right-handed; there is a roll-pin mounted to the turntable that travels in a slot in the countertop; the length of the slot determines the travel of the turntable. Photo of underside of top part of countertop, to show how the turntable travel works.

NanoLab- dome & access to mechanisms The flat surface with the round metal balls is a drum, with a layer of rubber glued on top and sheet metal glued on the bottom. You can lift it off- it is held in place by sheet magnets underneath. But either remove the balls first, or slide it to the side a bit, so you can get underneath and lift VERY CAREFULLY to avoid tipping and spilling the metal balls (and you don’t want metal balls to get loose and stuck between the white sintra and the turntable).

Last, you can lift the white sintra disk off the shaft- however you really do NOT want to do this, as metal balls could fall down and into the space around the shaft.

NanoLab- dome & access to mechanisms

Reassemble: be sure there are no 1/8” metal balls down between the white disk and the turntable. Then line up white plastic and dome, screw back in place BY HAND.

Line up the outer metal ring carefully so the holds match, and slide it down and screw cover in place. Be sure turntable moves freely- if it is binding loosen the four screws and use a prybar to lift it up slightly.

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms Three interactives all have rubber-coated disks that gently move around, to simulate the motion of atoms at the Nano scale: One by One, Lots of Atoms, and Atoms Build their own (Self Assembly). These all have the same motor/drive mechanism/electronics . The following pages show how it works and is wired/programmed.

1

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms MOTOR AND BACK PULLEY The first set of photos shows the motor and mechanism that causes the drumheads inside the domes to vibrate and shake the metal ball bearings that visitors use as “atoms.” The motor is mounted to the underside of the table base at the back of the cabinet, in order that visitors in wheelchairs can approach the cabinet. Its shaft is vertical, and turns a pulley and belt. Motor shaft with pulley attached

counterweight

Pulley is screwed to a matching JA bushing (McMaster 6086K112); as the 3 screws are tightened this draws the slotted bushing onto motor shaft, and draws the bushing into the pulley via their tapered fit. To remove the pulley, you’d need to undo the 3 screws, and screw them in the other 3 holes to push the bushing out.

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms MOTOR CONTROLLER & ELECTRONICS: When a visitor presses the white HAPP button on the tabletop, a relay/timer unit is turned on, and the motor controller turns on power to the motor, and gradually builds up speed over about 15 seconds. The motor stays on until the timer/relay unit cycle ends (typically set for about 60 seconds) when it goes off automatically (slowing down over about 3 seconds). The motor is a 3/4HP, 3-phase, 230 volt motor which runs smoothly and efficiently and quietly while not getting warm. It is run by the Automation Direct AC Drive GS1-10P5 controller unit in the electronics box in the underside of the cabinet; that unit also takes single-phase, 120V AC input power and creates the necessary 3-phase, 230V AC power that enables the motor to run. The motor is 3/4HP to get up to the desired 5/8” shaft; the controller is rated for 1/2HP, so the motor will not be run anywhere near its full power.

Timer-relay settings: 600 99.9seconds range oneshot HAPP button microswitch is Normally Open (NO); when pressed by visitor it closes momentarily, which tells the AC Drive to turn on the motor and bring it up to speed over several seconds. The AC Drive also has an output which then closes; this is wired to two contacts on the timer and starts the timer running for about 60 seconds; during that time the “STOP” on the AC Drive is inhibited, allowing the motor to run. When the timer finishes its cycle, the stop is no longer inhibited, so the AC drive decelerates the motor to a stop.

3

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms Automation Direct AC Drive controller settings: Time for motor to come up to speed: 20 seconds (programmed; actually gets there in 3-4 seconds with no load). Time for motor to slow down and stop: 5 seconds Output to motor: 13 hertz (230 volts AC), which causes motor to turn at about 20% of its rated 1725rpm at 60hertz, or about 350-400 rpm Digital Input 1 (DI1) is FWD RUN command; causes motor to run (forward) when actuated (momentarily pulled to common by HAPP microswitch) When DI1 is actuated, this also causes R1 and R10 to contact; that closes two contacts on the timer/relay and starts the timer/relay. Digital Input 3 (DI3): STOP command; output from timer/relay leads keeps this pulled to common until the end of the timer cycle; when the timer no longer pulls this to common, the controller causes the motor to decelerate and stop. Pressing run/stop button on front of AC Drive will stop the motor (cannot start the motor again until the timer has timed out).

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms Electrical connections inside box are not wire nuts, but more reliable “Buchanan crimp” fittings that crimp firmly onto wires.—wires (stripped) go into copper cap, copper cap with wires goes inside plastic sleeve (with ring with teeth) and then crimp tool is used to squeeze copper cap onto wires; the cap/wires do not come out easily because of the ring with teeth inside the plastic sleeve. They cannot be unscrewed (unlike wire nuts)for servicing, you must either cut wires or cut the cap off, and cut off the crimp (to avoid shortening the wires).

Copper cap squeezed on— plastic sleeve then slides on last.

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms FRONT PULLEY As the motor turns, the pulley/belt attached to its shaft drives a front pulley. The front pulley has been machined out (it normally has a taper inside) and a stepped shaft pressed into the pulley that extends below the pulley (1 1/8” dia) and above it (5/8” dia), with a wider section pressed into the pulley (hand press with loctite). Underneath the pulley the lower part of the 1 1/8” part of the shaft has a bearing, then shaft collar (to keep the shaft at the correct height), then second bearing- the two bearings spaced apart are there to keep the shaft aligned vertically. The two bearings and shaft collar are captured in a two-part aluminum housing built for this:

Custom double cam removed for this photo so you can see the shaft

Underside of tabletop—you can see the bottom of the 1 1/8” shaft, in a 1 1/8” bearing captured in the aluminum housing.

There are two moving parts driven simultaneously by the front pulley- a white ½” thick Sintra disk with drumhead on top that visitors see, and a hidden orange block of wood (with metal inside it for extra weight) that is a counterweight that moves opposite to the white Sintra disk/drumhead assembly—having the counterweight makes the entire motion smooth, without a lot of vibration on the tabletop/cabinet.

7

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms MOVING DRUMHEAD: There is a 5/8” shaft sticking up through the tabletop—it is off-center from the front pulley, so it moves around like a cam with a travel of about ¼”. The white 12mm thick (just under ½”) Sintra disk has PVC center section, with a center bearing that the shaft goes through, and thus moves around on the tabletop about ¼”. PVC is used in center of the white Sintra because Sintra is too soft to hold a press-fit bearing.

8

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms There is a drumhead that has a steel plate glued to its bottom; the steel is attracted to the magnet material on the top of the white sintra disk: Drum offset on sintra disk for taking photo only (Lots of Atoms).

MOVING COUNTERWEIGHT: As the white sintra disk/drumhead moves, the counterweight moves in the opposite direction by about 1/8”:

Several pounds of metal is embedded in the plywood of the counterweight block

9

NanoLab- interactive exhibit motor mechanisms To keep the motion smooth at the end of the travel, the counterweight has bungee cord attached at each end (the tension in the cord can be adjusted and then held in place with the black bar screwed down):

DOUBLE-CAM A custom double-cam mechanism is attached to the shaft of the pulley. You can see it here with the counterweight out of the way: Axis of front pulley

The top offset 5/8” shaft drives the sintra disk with attached drumhead with metal balls that visitors see. The middle 1 1/8” dia section of the double cam is offset the opposite way from the top, and drives the counterweight hidden under the tabletop

The bottom section of the cam is centered with the shaft of the pulley; a 5/8” ID bore goes through the bottom on center and into the middle section, that fits over the top of the shaft pressed into the center of pulley.. FYI, the double-offset cam is attached (with three set screws) to a stepped shaft that goes through the front pulley: the top part of the stepped shaft is 5/8”, the bottom is 1 1/8” and pressed into the pulley and through it

NanoLab- audio & headphones ACCESS to volume & pushbuttons: Undo the four screws that hold the graphic card in place, and you can lift it up to get access to the two pushbuttons:

The volume knob is attached to a ¼” shaft with a tiny set screw, which takes a 0.050” allen wrench. It turns a 10K potentiometer.

ACCESS to the audio amplifiers & headphones Undo the two screws that hold up the white metal stanchion (4mm or 5/32” allen wrench, included with NanoLab tools), and set the stanchion aside.

Access: see instructions that follow for the different cabinets.

NanoLab- audio & headphones Then unplug the headphone(s) from the jack on the audio amplifier board.

Undo the knot in the cable, and feed the cord out through the spring (which serves as strain relief) and hole in the countertop. Feed cord for new headphone(s) through hole and spring, redo the knot, and plug in. Reassemble countertop, then stanchion. Access for the three exhibits with motor mechanisms: Undo the three square drive screws (#2 drive with tools for NanoLab) that go from the underside of the cabinet into the triangular section of the top of the table—two screws are at the front of the cabinet, and one is along the edge about ½ way to the back corner. Then lift the orange tabletop section off.

UNSCREW the front screw on the side LEAVE IN PLACE: the backmost screw on the side that holds the center section.
