Guidelines for Safe Operation

Design equipment with interlocks and other failsafes, rather than entrusting electrical safety to operator vigilance. Mechanical or electrical interlocks can be very simple. Members of the ALS Electrical Engineering Group have designed many types of interlocks and are a valuable resource for users.
Use vacuum interlocks or mechanical interlocks to turn off hazardous voltages when vacuum vessels are at atmospheric pressure or when ports are open.
Use mechanical barriers or electrical interlocks in designing human-operated equipment that will enter a vacuum vessel, to prevent contact with high-voltage components.
Ensure that low-voltage wiring inside a vacuum vessel is separated by a safe distance from any high-voltage components. Metal oxide varistors (MOV\'s), Transorbs\", spark gaps, and similar devices can also be used to ground low-voltage wires if they exceed specified voltages.
Ground all manipulators, and restrict their motion, to avoid inadvertently charging them to high voltage.
