The Arquata and Montegallo Temporary network was installed by OGS after the Mw 6.0 and Mw 5.4 earthquakes which struck Central Italy on August 24, 2016.

A total of 13 sites were deployed in the area struck by the earthquake. The equipment consisted basically of a 1 Hz three-component velocimetric sensor (Lennartz 3Dlite) possibly buried in the soil, a datalogger set for continuous data acquisition with a sample rate of 100 Hz, a GPS antenna and a battery connected to photovoltaic panels when power supply was not available. Five stations were equipped also with a strong-motion sensor: two of them with an Episensor accelerometer, the other three with a Nanometrics TitanXT strong motion accelerograph -a 6-channel model that incorporates the TXT-3 accelerometer- with real-time data transmission devices.
