Multi-Channel Seismic Recording System

The 130-MC is a third-generation digital recording system designed for structural monitoring and to civil engineering requirements.

Available in as 12-channel or 18-channel configuration, its built-in communication capabilities provide real time and on-demand data collection across all channels.

Network several 130-MCs to provide comprehensive coverage of movement over larger structures such as dams or bridges. Includes 4 internal 12V DC batteries to provide up to 72 hours of continuous data acquisition in the event of a power interruption. If the interruption exceeds 72 hours, the 130-MC will power down and resume data acquisition automatically when AC power returns and begin recharging the internal batteries.

The MC’s rugged design allows for installation in the harsh outdoor environment, and the standard wall-mount design of the enclosure allows the system to be installed out of the way, as opposed to occupying valuable floor space in a building’s electrical room. When using this centralized system, the user has the flexibility to deploy dense sensor arrays around a structure at their discretion. For sites requiring large numbers of recording channels, multiple 130-MCs can be networked together to achieve common triggering of all channels in the system and common time synchronization, establishing a robust solution for large scale projects.
