Chiara reports an uptime of >195 days, so its UPS is working fine yes

FB, megatron, optimus booted via front panel button.

Jetstor RAID array (where the frames live) was beeping, since its UPS failed as well. The beep was silenced by clicking on "View Events/Mute Beeper" at 192.168.113.119 in a browser on a martian computer. I've started a data consistency check via the web interface, as well. According to the log, this was last done in July 2015, and took ~19 hrs.

Frontends powered up; models don't start automatically at boot anymore, so I ran rtcds start all on each of them. 

All frontends except c1ioo had a very wrong datetime, so I ran sudo ntpdate -b -s -u pool.ntp.org on all of them, and restarted the models (just updating the time isn't enough). There is an /etc/ntp.conf in the frontend filesystem that points to nodus, which is set up as an NTP server, but I guess this isn't working.

PMC locking was hindered by sticky sliders. I burtrestored the c1psl.snap from Friday, and the PMC locked up fine. (One may be fooled by the unchanged HV mon when moving the offset slider into thinking the HV KEPCO power supplies need to be brought down and up again, but it's just the sliders)

Mode cleaner manually locked and somewhat aligned. Based on my memory of PMC camera/transmission, the pointing changed; the WFS need a round of MC alignment and WFS offset setting, but the current state is fine for operation without all that.

We have one calibration sheet of GUR- B, from 26 June 2008,    model CMG-T40-0008,  sn T4157       at  ETMY  east,  interface box input 1

I'm looking for calibration paper of GUR- A,                                model CMG-T40-0053,  sn T4Q17      at ETMX   south, interface box input 2

Quote:

I measured the guralp raw outputs and the TFs using the handheld unit and an FFT analyzer.

[Setup]

The handheld unit was connected to each guralp with the same cable which is confirmed t be functional with the Yend Guralp.

The signal for Z, N, and E directions are obtained from the banana connectors on the handheld unit. Each direction has mass, low gain velocity, and high gain velocity output. The PSDs of the signals were measured with an FFT analyzer. The transfer function from the mass signal to the low/high gain signals were also measured for each direction.

The adjustment screw for the E output of the Xend does not work. I had to tilt the Xend Guralp using the leg screws to bring the E signal to zero.

[Result]

Attachment 1: Raw voltage PSD for all outputs
Attachment 2: Comparison of the low gain vel outputs

- All of the mass output show similar PSDs.
- Low gain velocity outputs shows somewhat similar levels. I still need to check if the output is really the ground velocity or not.
- High gain velocity outputs are either not high gain, broken, or not implemented.

- We need to calibrate the low gain output using signal injection, huddle test, or something else.

Attachment 3: TFs between each mass output and the low or high gain outputs

- TFs between the mass signal and the low vel signals show the similar transfer functions between the channels.
- The high gain outputs show low or no transfer function with regard to the mass signals.

Quote:

Steve has finished installing the enclosure on the new endtable. So Eric and I decided to try and lock the X arm and measure the beam height of the transmitted IR beam relative to the endtable. We initially thought of using POX DC as a the LSC trigger but this did not work as there was no significant change in it when the arm was flashing. Eric then tried misaligning the ITM and using AS110 as a trigger - this worked. We then recompiled the ASS model to take AS110 as an input, and ran the dither alignment. After doing so, I measured the beam height at two points on the new endtable.

Bottom line:

  • The beam is roughly level across the table (along the North-South direction, within the precision to which I could place the irides and measure the height). The table has also been levelled pretty well...
  • The beam height is ~4.7" across the endtable

So the beam is about 0.7" higher relative to the endtable than we'd like it to be. What do we do about this?

  • Is it even possible to raise the table by 0.7" so we can have a level beam everywhere? Are there some constraints related to how the enclosure is attached to the window?
  • Are we okay with tolerating a solution where we keep the beam level at 4", and use Y10 and Y11 (see layout in elog 12060) to raise the beam by 0.7", and then have slightly higher posts for the optics downstream of this point?

I've also placed two irides extending the cavity axis on the endtable. These should be helpful in aligning the green to the arm eventually.

The new TMC 4' x 3' x4" optical table and enclosure is installed - aligned- leveled.

Atm2,  Picture is taken ~42" from the window at 3.75 camera height. The leveled table height is wthin 1/4 at the center of the window.

I think this is close enough to move on with the installation of the optics.

We can raise the loaded table in the future if it is needed.

Quote:

Steve pointed out that in the aftermath of the Nitrogen running out a couple of times last week, the RGA had shut itself off thinking that there was a leak and so it was not performing the scheduled scans once a day. So the data files from the scheduled scans were empty in the /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/RGA/logs directory. The wiki page for getting it up and running again is up-to-date, but the script RGAset.py did not exist on the c0rga machine, which the RGA is communicating with via serial port. I copied over the script RGAset.py from rossa to c0rga and ran the script on that machine - but the error flags it returned were not all 0 (indicating some error according to the manual) - so I edited the script to send just the initialize command ('IN0') and commented out the other commands, after which I got error flags which were all 0. After this, I ran a manual scan using 'RGAlogger.py', and it appears that the RGA is now able to take scans again - I'm attaching a plot of the scan results. We've saved this scan as a reference to compare against after a few days. 

Our last RGA scan is from February 14, 2016  We had a power outage on the 15th

Gautom has not succeded  reseting it. The old c0rga computer looks dead. Q may resurrect it, if he can?

Machined from I-beam 6061 T6 Aluminum 5" x 0.5 x 3.25

Quote:

As we realized during the EX table switch, the transmitted beam height from the arm is not exactly 4" relative to the endtable, it is more like 4.75" at the X-end (yet to be investigated at the Y-end). As a result, the present configuration involves the steering optics immediately before the Oplev and TransMon QPDs sending the beam downwards at about 5 degrees. Although this isn't an extremely large angle, we would like to have things more level. For this purpose, Steve has ordered some Aluminium I-beams (1/2 " thick) which we can cut to size as we require. The idea is to have the QPD enclosures mounted on these beams and then clamped to the table. One concern was electrical isolation - but Steve thinks Delrin washers between the QPD enclosure and the mount will suffice. We will move ahead with getting these machined once I investigate the situation at the Y end as well.. The I beams should be here sometime next week...

Visual inspection of rooftop GPS antennae:

The 2 GPS antennas are located on the north west corner of CES roof. Their condition looks well weathered. I'd be surprised if they work.

The BNC connector of the 1553 head is inside of the conduit so it is more likely to have a better connection than the other one.

I have not had a chance to look into the "GPS Time Server" unit.
