An announcement from the Facilities Department alerted the campus of electrical testing for buildings north of route 104 occurring on Jan. 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A reposting of that announcement is at the end of this article.
The announcement mentioned some electrical “blips” that may occur during the testing timeframe. CTS would like to make the following recommendations for electronic use during this testing period to help minimize equipment failure and minimize loss of productivity.
If you will not be on campus on Jan. 5, please turn off and unplug all of your electronic equipment prior to your departure from campus. This includes any computers, monitors, printers, scanners, etc.
If you will be on campus on Jan. 5, please turn off and unplug any equipment that will not be used during the testing period.
If you have a fully charged laptop that can be disconnected from power during the testing period, please use it.
If you are using a desktop computer, please save your work frequently.
Please note that campus network equipment and servers are configured with battery back-up power. Therefore we do not expect any disruptions connecting to the campus wired and wireless networks, nor to any technology services including the use of phones.
If you have any questions related to electronic usage during the testing period, please call the Help Desk at 315.312.3456.
