The U.S. Geological Survey is looking for a contactor that can provide uniaxial accelerometers (some with singe supply option 4G and some with standard dual supply option 4G). This equipment will be used in the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) as part of the National Strong Motion Network for structural monitoring.
These systems must be existing, upgraded, or improved versions of models which can be purchased "off-the-shelf" and of a type or types that have been utilized in previous deployments for periods of not less than six (6) months.
Specifications for each force-balance type uniaxial accelerometers are given in Table 1. The sensors should be available with options for single and dual power supplies.
