The physical layout of the equipment in the experimental hutch is shown below.

3D Layout of the experimental hutch

The hutch is air-conditioned (temperature stability ± 0.1°) and serviced with cold water, compressed air and nitrogen gas together with a pump exhaust system. To facilitate manipulation of heavy equipment, the hutch is equipped with a 500 kg manual overhead crane and a 125 kg electric one. There is a hinged chicane between the hutch and the main control cabin (CC3) for temporary installation of special electrical connections if required. A motorised web camera is permanently installed on a cable tray close to the roof of the hutch.
