The internally mounted 2Hz triaxial sensors have a wide dynamic range when compared to traditional seismometers, able to record signals up to a clip level of about 254mm/s, ideal for near field blast and vibration monitoring applications. For earthquake monitoring, simply adjust the input amplifier to increase sensitivity with a corresponding reduction in the clip level. To achieve equivalent sensitivity to most short period seismographs, an amplifier setting of x16 will produce an effective sensitivity of 1260V/m/s with a clip level of about 16mm/s.
With a built-in LCD and keypad, setup takes no time and doesn’t require a laptop, phone, tablet, or Bluetooth connection. Simply add a 12V battery and mains/solar power source and you’ll be recording earthquakes and other local vibrations in no time. It even has an extra channel for a microphone input for blast monitoring. Our GeckoLink (Raspberry Pi-based) accessory offers Ethernet and WiFi connectivity and SeedLink server connectivity, providing advanced users with the ability to install their own on-site data processing routines.
