Subject: 2nd set of Guralp channels plugged into ADCU 

The second set of Guralp channels is now plugged into the PEM ADCU, into channels which are confirmed to be working.  (Method: 1Vpp sine wave into channel, check with DataViewer).

 

Direction, Channel Name, .ini chnum, BNC plug # on ADCU

Vertical: C1:PEM-SEIS_GUR_VERT, 15023, #24

N/S (should be Y when the seismometer is put in place): C1:PEM-TEMP_2, 15001, #2

E/W (should be X when the seismometer is put in place): C1:PEM-TEMP_3, 15002, #3

 

There is IFO work going on, so I don't want to rename the channels / restart fb40m until a little later, so I'll just use the old TEMP channel names for now. 

 

There is something totally wrong with the E/W channel.  I can look at all 3 channels on a 'scope (while it's on battery, so the op-amps in the breakout box aren't grounded), and VERT and NS look fine, and when I jump around ("seismic testing"), they show spikes.  But the EW channel's signal on the 'scope is way smaller, and it doesn't show anything when I jump. 

 

I might use the handheld Guralp tester breakout box to check the seismometer.  Also, a suspicion I have is that whoever put the box back in on Friday night after our final noise measurements left the inputs shorted for this one channel.  It's the 3rd channel in the set, so it would be most likely to be stuck shorted...  Investigations will ensue.
