Bruce, Simon, and Arash:

FacOps is planning on shutting down one of the main electrical panels 
for a period of about 3 hours in the next day or two.  This panel will 
likely affect power in CIS 152.

Here's the background:  On Friday afternoon, several of the breakers on 
another panel lost power and it appears as if the breaker in the 
upstream distribution panel failed.  As a result, that distribution 
breaker needs to be shutdown in order to replace the faulty breaker.

This shutdown will affect about 1/3 of the pieces of equipment in the 
lab but will also affect both of the panels in CIS 152.  While I suspect 
that a number of instruments will not be adversely affected, anything 
that is under vacuum, for example, should likely be gracefully shutdown 
before this outage.

The schedule of when this will happen is uncertain at the moment pending 
locating a replacement breaker but it is likely to happen either this 
afternoon or tomorrow.

Let me know if you have any questions,
