The purpose of this amendment is to extend the quote submission due date to 1:00PM on Friday, September 8, 2017 and to include Qutesions and Answers. Question 1 : What are the model numbers of the boards that plug into that chassis? Answer 1 : There are no boards. The device is external and uses a USB to communicate with the controller. The only concern is the compatibility with the NI software - NIST needs the Slow Strain Rate control system to run the NI-Max software (or equivalent) to read the signals. Question 2 : What are the model numbers of the modules plugged into that chassis? Answer 2 : NIST has 1 NI-9215 with a terminal block fixture and 2 NI-9215 with BNC fixtures. All 3 are ± 10 VDC input. NIST does not have any other plugins for that unit at this time. --------------------------------------------------------------------- COMBINED SYNOPSIS/SOLICITATION SB1341-17-RQ-0833 Precision Electromechanical Slow Strain Rate Tensile Testing System This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6 - Streamlined Procedures for Evaluation and Solicitation for Commercial Items, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice.
