Brief Description

Description :

Analog Seismic Recorder is meant to monitor process and record the seismic signal from the remote area under observation. It processes the low frequency, low amplitude and highly noise corrupted signal generated by the short period seismometer in response to ground motion and finally record this processed data along with precision timing information on a smoked paper wrapped on a drum. The recording is tagged with the internal clock which in turn is synchronized with ATA timing signal transmitted by NPL, New Delhi. It is comparable in performance and specifications with any internationally available in line product
