ALL about Seismic Monitoring System

Seismic monitoring system has a variety of kinds and functions.
Here are some points to select the one for a particular purpose.

1. History record is the most important information for verification

When earthquake occurs big enough to activate seismometers, the judgment for equipment stop or emergency announcement must be verified with the history records. If there is no history recorded, it is hard to know if the judgment is correct or not. To save, the time of record must be correct, so optional system for automatic time correction is recommended as well.

2. Use alarm output

Redundancy is recommended for the number of contact in alarm output of seismic monitoring system.
To prevent the secondary disaster, well structured anti-earthquake measures must be considered by connecting outputs to shut off system, evacuation announcement, emergency light or opening of emergency door.

3. All directional detection is recommended

It is common for seismic monitoring system to use two directional vector (vertical and horizontal).
However, the actual earthquake wave occurs in 3 direction, so the level may differ if it is only horizontal or 2 vector composition. Thatʼs why all directional detection is recommended for near field earthquake.

4. 2 out of 3 unit method

Seismic monitoring system is a high reliable measuring instrument. However, it cannot be assured that malfunction or breakdown never happen. To avoid huge recovery cost, setting up of 3 units is highly recommended.

5. Cautions for specification selection

Power supply
Select from AC 100V or DC24V. We can also offer a seismic monitoring system with an uninterruptible power supply built-in.
Cautions for specification selection
IMV's seismic monitoring sensor does detection to digital processing. In standard composition, it can be extended to 100m.

6. Malfunction measure of seismic monitoring system

The system malfunction due to external shock vibration or electric noise may cause serious trouble because it will cause inaccuracy in emergency response.

Against physical shock motion such as bumping into something or falling object, the filtering function which cuts the frequency of more than 10Hz is useful. The protection cover on the sensor is useful to avoid the impact from outside.

Against electric noise such as thunder, lightning or fluorescent light, setting some time log in seismic detection makes it less susceptible to the momentary and short period cycle occurring electric noise.
