Seismic monitoring and protection system specialists SENSONICS, has enhanced its seismic equipment product range by developing a new LINUX based seismic event recording platform.

The Sensonics design concept provides a high level of protection through the performance of a single seismic switch which complies with the strictest functional safety requirements. To optimise the safety aspect of the design, the Sensonics system separates the protection circuit and recording functions, which eliminates the uncertainty inherent in SMART devices from the functional safety case. 

The new Linux based recording system offers up to 16 channels of seismic data acquisition on a fully solid-state platform which can be expanded up to 32 or 48 channels by using the separate hub option to create a single flash memory store for the data and central configuration. Data analysis in waveform, FFT and spectral density is available as standard.

Applications for this equipment include automatic safe shutdown of a critical process in the event of an earthquake and the recording of any seismic events to allow post-event analysis of structural impact.
