We want to conduct a huddle test with the three 40m seismometers (2 Guralps and 1 Trillium), so we began to get that set up in order. All three are currently sitting on the large granite slab approximately halfway down the length of the MC tube. We had to move all three seismometers: the Trillium had been next to the BS and the Guralps at the end stations. All three are balanced and aligned and we have put the foam box over them.
The Trillium has not yet been used here, so we had to first wire its power supply. We're now providing its readout box with +/- 20 V. Getting that hooked up required powering down several electronics racks, which involved auxiliary prep work like turning off the suspension watchdogs. We also installed 3 new BNC cables to carry the Trillium x,y,z signals from its box to the CDS AA board. We're using the inputs which had previously been used for recording the STS2 signals.
We could find only one of the two 'short' Guralp cables, so at the moment just one of the two Guralps is powered and connected to CDS. Jenne made (some time ago) new cables so that we could leave the long cables that run from the corner to each end station in place to preserve the nominal setup.
Attachment/edit by Jenne: Seismic spectra. Note that the T240 is connected to the channels that are called STS_1. I compared the Guralp spectra to our seismic_ref, and they match up pretty well. The new spectra is maybe a factor of 2 or so above the reference, at a few Hz. Anyhow, the Guralp seems fine. I am sure that somewhere we have a second short (as in, not 50m long) Guralp cable, I just can't remember right now where it might be. Also, the T-240 has some seriously crazy noise up around 30Hz. What's up with that?? I want to ask Zach if he saw this when he had the Trillium, or if it is new.
