A large fraction of the electronics is rather old, many of which having more than 15 years. Together with the lack of documentation, this has the potential to generate more extensive down time in the future. Considering this, we intend to make an inventory of the different electronic components which are part of the telescope and building drives, check if any documentations and spares are available, and see if there are ways that parts can be replaced, e.g., in software.
