Quality and reliability
Seismometer are to measure ground motion. Because of the sensitive nature of such instruments seismic stations are often very remote. Any maintenance can be quite painful.
Streckeisen seismometers undergo an extensive range of tests and quality controls. For this purpose a large test-infrastructure is at our disposal.
Streckeisen Seismic Instrumentation is maintaining a long standing collaboration with Quanterra, Shirley, USA. Together we established broadband-seismology decades ago. Quanterra is a division of Kinemetrics, Pasadena, USA and famous for its ultra high performance seismic digitizers (the Q330 family). The strategic partnership with Kinemetrics allow us to be present worldwide.
Streckeisen seismometers are spread all around the world. Many large seismic networks depend on the performance and reliability of our sensors.
