Kelunji Gecko Broadband Seismograph

The Kelunji Gecko seismograph is our latest earthquake recorder, designed to be the easiest to use broadband seismographs on the market. With data captured at anywhere from 40 to 4000 samples per second, the Gecko truly covers a broad band of frequencies from the longest period 360-second seismometer to geophones and accelerometers with up to 2kHz frequency response.

The Gecko comes in two chassis designs: the “Compact“, a small exclosure with an iPhone-sized footprint; and the “Rugged“, which places the electronics in a waterproof chassis with a CD-sized footprint, bringing beautiful style to the Gecko’s efficient substance. We have several models built on the Rugged chassis with integrated sensors, including two Strong Motion Accelerographs (SMA and SMA-HR), a 1Hz short period seismograph (Helix) and a 30-second broadband seismograph (Prism). Upcoming Gecko “Blast” variants will bring 4.5Hz and 2Hz geophones into the Rugged recorder to eliminate external sensors and cabling, make blast monitoring installation super simple: set it down, turn it on, and walk away.

Description

Modern seismology requires continuous recording of the earth’s movements, and the Gecko is always on and continuously recording 3 channels of data. Continuous data is stored onto a local SD card or telemetered to a remote computer via wireless modem. Processing of the data is handled by analysis computers, leaving the Gecko to be as power efficient as possible, using well under 1W of power, meaning you can record over a month using a car battery, or indefinitely with a small solar panel and battery.

The Gecko uses the latest 32-bit Analogue to Digital Converter (ADC) chips to maximise the range amplitudes that can be recorded – the ratio of the largest to the smallest recordable signal is a factor of almost 8 million to 1.
