Tests of CASE-IPY stations
The CASE-IPY experiment is proceeding nicely. Today we have started full-scale tests of the equipment we are to deploy. We have connected up the 3 solar panels, two regulators, ten batteries, an acquisition system (RefTek-130), a GPS receiver, and a seismometer. Everything but the seismometer and the solar panels lives in a big, insulated box. One of the challenges of the morning was remembering in what sequence to put things in the box...
My job this afternoon is to upgrade and properly configure the acquisition systems for all the stations. Given the problems we have had with the RefTeks when configuring them in the field, I am determined to pre-configure them and run all conceivable tests on them beforehand!
