Gecko Tremor Short Period Seismograph

The SRC launched a short period seismograph at the Asian Seismological Commission conference in Melbourne on 25-27 November 2016. Expanding our range of waterproof seismographs, the original model has been replaced by the Gecko Tremor integrates a triaxial velocity sensor with a bandwidth of 2Hz-500Hz, which is perfect for local and regional scale earthquake monitoring networks and aftershock deployments. With an optional internal battery you can be recording within minutes of arriving at your survey location – simply turn it on and plug in the GPS aerial and you’ll get around 24 hours of recording before you need to connect an external 12V power source to the charge regulator – be it a solar-powered system or mains power.

Portable and rugged, the Tremor uses the simple LCD and keypad interface for full configuration without the need for a laptop. Data is continuously recorded to a removable SD card in MiniSEED format, and the 32GB storage can store over a year of continuous data at 100sps. Add an Ethernet/WiFi adaptor or cellular modem to stream data back to a data centre computer that will be running our free Streams software application.

Our brilliantly simple Waves application software is freely available for data viewing and analysis.
