Fibre Multi-Object Spectrograph (FMOS) is one of the second-generation instruments of Subaru Telescope. FMOS is consisted of a number of subsystems; the Prime focus unit for IR (called PIR), the fibre positioning system/connector units, and the two spectrographs. The PIR and one spectrograph were made in Kyoto University, and were brought to the Subaru telescope last spring. The PIR attached to the telescope and stellar images were obtained for optical alignment in July and October last year. We report on these engineering run in this proceeding.
