Add to wishlist

24 bit seismograph for passive seismic activity, particularly indicated for recording micro-earthquakes or seismic vibrations. The data acquisition methods (timed or with trigger threshold) are set through the software easily and quickly. Equipped with graphic display, keyboard, memory support of Secure Digital (S.D.) type and internal battery, seismograph VIBRALOG is particularly easy to use also in less favourable environments and conditions.
Thanks to the MAE data acquisition and conversion card, based on one single A/D signal converter for each inlet channel (SST technology), it allows to obtain the best possible resolution when acquiring the data for each single inlet channel and it allows to record and graphically visualize up to 4 channels coming from seismic sensors (with single component or tridimensional).
Thanks to its dynamic characteristics, the instrument is particularly suitable to determine the resonance frequency of the site, through the H/V ratio method and to acquire transitional events (caused by natural seismicity or human activities) with the purpose to calculate the maximum speeds of the stresses suffered by a structure.
