The Strong Motion Accelerograph (SMA) version of our Gecko seismograph debuted at the 10th Pacific Conference on Earthquake Engineering in Sydney on 6-8 November 2015.
Designed for structural monitoring and rapid deployment for aftershock monitoring, the Gecko SMA (and higher resolution Gecko SMA-HR) are the simplest-to-use seismographs on the market. Simply anchor a threaded post in rock or concrete, drop on the Gecko SMA and screw on a locking nut, then power it with a 12V battery and your data is continuously recorded to a removable SD memory card. With a 12-month ring-buffer of continuous data storage as standard, this is a set-and-forget instrument.
The various configurations of Gecko SMA will enable you to record signals as small a ±0.000001g and as large as ±5g, with linear high frequency response available up to 600Hz.
