Plug in usb connector (gives rfemale USB port). Plug in GPS unit
Plug Ethernet cable in and connect other end with Ethernet jack in wall or Wifi router
Plug USB power cable in (be gentle with the connector) and plug into 12V splitter USB port.
Blue LED should light up when powered on.
Unit needs to be well coupled to the ground. Either place on a solid rock surface, or scrape off any loose material to place on the firmest ground possible.
3D units must be aligned to North.
Use screw legs and bubble level to ensure unit is flat.
Connect to the pi in order to check date and that data are being collected. Plug ethernet cable into Pi and other end into wifi router/hub
connect to that wifi via laptop
Open browser on desktop computer (or tablet, phone) and navigate to http://rs.local (if this does not work, find IP address of raspberry shake (for Windows 10 cmd: arp –a) and type in your browser http://???.?.??.???) . Raspberry Shake can be configured by choosing Settings icon
In a terminal, ssh to firstname.lastname@example.org
Default username and password: username: myshake, password: shakeme
checking the time
In terminal $date
In browser, should be on home page as "System Time"
Note time should be in UTC
If needed, setting time to laptop time $ ssh email@example.com "sudo date --set \"$(date)\""
check connection of GPS: $ ntpq -p
System Status should be RUNNING. May take a few moments in BOOTING.
Ensure that the data-producer is ON
checking out the data
Helicorder plot (last 12h of data, updates every 2 min) can be seen on http://rs.local/heli
Program ‘swarm’ (available on Linux, MAC, Windows) can be downloaded on webpage to visualize seismic data from Raspberry Shake (http://rs.local >> Actions icon (green icon on bottom) >> Downloads >> Swarm), for Windows: open swarm_console.bat, Linux+MAC: sh swarm.sh (note, you will need to have openjdk-8-jre installed).
Data from Raspberry shake is in folder myShake – Networks – AM, RS Community folder shows data from raspberry shake community
Click into helicorder plot (shows last 24h of data in 30 min segments) to see detailed waveform data, first right click: power spectra, second right click: spectrogram
Shut down from web front-end, never just pull plug (system >> shutdown)
Note: If there are more than one Raspberry Shake on same network, they will appear as rs.local, rs-2.local, …, rs-n.local.
Working Raspberry Shake lights ensemble
Pi board (red (solid), green (flashing every 2-5 s)
Shake board (blue (solid))
Ethernet port (green (flashing repeatedly), orange (solid))

AM.R640E.00 – Shake 1D + Boom
AM.RABE8.00 – Shake 1D + Boom
AM.RC24D.00 – Shake 1D + Boom
AM.RBB35.00 – 3D Shake
Note: 3Ds will need aligning to true North
Useful terminal commands
ls –lh: check if it records
date: to check UTC date
rsh: shut down
ip n: shows ip addresses
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org (if this does not work try ssh email@example.com)
