Autonomous Operation -
Deploy a Seismograph anywhere at any time

The DX6 is a 6 channel seismograph that can be used for almost any seismic project. With its internal memory, optional USB memory and GPS, the flexible DX6 node can be deployed anywhere, at any time.


Autonomous Operation features:

Internal GPS: disciplines clock, locates node, and provides accurate timing.

Internal memory plus optional external USB memory for data security and long term operation.

Records with geophones, hydrophones, microphones and/or accelerometers.

Includes full featured, complete software package for data collection, file creation and SEG-Y, SEG-D, ASCII or miniSEED output.

Same DX6 node can be used with Wi-Fi or cabled network for real-time operation.

Scheduled Wakeup and Sleep times.

Low-Power Wireless Radio built into unit.

  Wi-Fi or Cabled Network Operation -
  6 channel Node Acquiring Real-Time Data
  DX6 seismograph nodes can be linked together with cables or Wi-Fi for real-time operation. This includes system status and control, plus real-time data collection, file harvest and SEG-Y output.


Real-Time Operation features:

2D, 3D, and random spreads supported
600+ channels per line
32+ lines per spread
Nodes automatically deployed using GPS
System supports SPS files
Nodes can be networked using cables or Wi-Fi
Includes full featured software package:
  - Spread deployment, status, and control
  - Data collection and QC
  - SEG-Y file creation and archiving
NTP Synchronization - Allows multiple DX6 nodes to be synchronized without GPS signal.
Low-Power Wireless Radio built into unit.


Networked Operation features:

DX6 equipped systems monitor noise and other environment conditions in real-time, no more "shoot-blind" acquisition.
DX6 optional components include:
  - Line Interface Units connect to multiple lines and the Central Computer.
  - The Central Computer manages spread, controls acquisition and collects data to generate SEG-Y files.
Same DX6 node can be used for autonomous GPS controlled operation.


SourceLink Compatibility:

  DX6 equipped systems are compatible with SourceLink and all SSC other source control electronics.

Simple, Streamlined, and Powerful
Perfect for All Types of Acquisition
