 +==== Interlock Open ====
 If either the key switch is deactivated or the interlock is opened while the system is operating, the SLICE-DCC will stop delivering current and the Enable window will flash red with INTERLOCK displayed (<imgref inter_open>​). In order to resume normal operation, interlocks must be restored to their operational state and the window must be touched to reset the tripped interlock. \\  If either the key switch is deactivated or the interlock is opened while the system is operating, the SLICE-DCC will stop delivering current and the Enable window will flash red with INTERLOCK displayed (<imgref inter_open>​).
