Individual Seismograph Stations

Complete Seismograph Networks
  Individual Seismograph Stations
For remote locations, Seismic Source builds individual seismo-graph stations. These stations silently monitor ground motion, sending out alert messages via email whenever they detect an event. Each station is equipped with solar power, battery back-up, three-component sensor and a high precision seismograph, plus a cellular modem.
  Complete Seismograph Networks
For the protection of buildings and sensitive equipment, Seismic Source offers complete seismograph networks. These networks blanket areas with multiple sensors and seismograph nodes. Once an event has been detected, the central station pulls data samples from the rest of the nodes, evaluates the entire datasets, and then emails an alert to the user.
  Robust and Flexible Seismograph Systems
Both systems use components proven in government and industry settings. Both systems offer data backup at the point of recording. Both systems generate not only event reports, but also generate reports on a monthly basis.
All Units Feature: 
- Cutting-Edge Design
- Multiple Time Synchronization Modes
- Multiple Trigger Modes
- Multiple Data Storage Methods
- Built-in Ethernet Network
- Built-in Acceptance Testing

Seismograph Networks:

Seismic Source Seismographs can be configured either as lone stations, at distant locations, operated by remote control, or as a network. A seismograph network is comprised of a series of identically equipped, save one, seismograph nodes.
Each node has a sensor, an event digitizer, a power supply, and a Wi-Fi transceiver. As each event is detected, it is digitized, scaled, and evaluated. Should an event meet or exceed tolerances, a message is sent to the master node. The master node alerts the other stations to download their data to the master node.
The master node, after receiving data from all the other stations creates and stores an industry-standard data file for event documentation and later analysis.
The master node is also equipped with a modem, either cellular or land-line, so it can generate and send email alerts to the user.

Proven Software: 
Seismic Source software has been used by geophysicists and seismologists since 2002. It proves three functions for this system: Hardware control, Signal analysis, and Data archival.
Observer provides digitizer configuration, system monitoring and data retrieval from seismograph nodes near and far. A user can check on this system from any location.
It features time-series data display and spectral analysis. This analytical ability helps in selecting parameters and comparing events.
The Observer software stores data in one of several supported formats: SEG-Y, SEG-2, and Mini-SEED. This software package, while it has been optimized for inexpensive Windows 10 based computers, will also run on Apple computers, both notebooks and larger computers.

Unattended Remote Stations:
Seismograph stations destined for long-term deployment require a rugged data acquisition unit as well as a high sensitivity sensor. Each station needs both power and security for the long haul.
Seismic Source Remote Stations features all of this and more. A tough digitizer, power via battery backup and solar augmentation as needed, plus security by hard mounting, make this equipment suitable for back-country installations.
This remote station is also equipped with either a cellular data modem or Wi-Fi unit for remote control and remote data collection.
The DAQ3-3 seismograph features a tough IP-67 rated aluminum enclosure with threaded holes for mounting in vaults or other enclosures. It supports a wide variety of sensors, both for velocity and acceleration, so the DAQ3-3 is a solid option for long-term deployment.

 Large Earthquakes
Other Options:
Seismic Source builds seismographs for every need. The 3-channel MetricPro and DAQ3-3 digitizers work well in monitoring situations. Seismic Source’s other units, the single channel R1-6, the 3-channel Sigma Box, and the 24-channel DAQlink 4 all have uses in event monitoring.
