Subject: New sensor on line and available for sale

I now have one of my new accelerometer sensor boards online. The event files
will be *.lcanh.psn (N-S), *.lcaeh.psn (E-W) and *.lcazh.psn (vertical). A
picture of the board as well as more information about the sensor board can
be found here:

I currently have 10 blank PC boards and 11 ICS3052-002 sensors chips
in-stock. Each sensor chip is one axis so I'm limited on the number of
channels I can send out immediately. I contacted the manufacture yesterday
to fined out the statues of the part. They do not have any in-stock and the
part has a 6 week lead time. The sales person said there was a backlog on
the part so they should be making more soon.

So what I have to do is figure out how may sensors chips to order. In single
quantities the part costs $199.00 through Digi-Key. The price drops to
$134.00 for 10, $114.00 for 25 and $102.00 for 100. The prices on my web
page are based on the parts costing around $134.00. I would like to by the
sensors in quantities of 100 so I could drop the price a little but I don't
want to put out $10K unless I can sell them in a few months.

If you would like to order one or more of the sensor boards please email me.
Note that this type of sensor, like a geophone, will only record local and
large regional events. It will not pickup distant or teleseismic events.
