Industrial Geophones

A LOW COST ANSWER TO VIBRATION DETECTION

Sensors which convert motion into electric signals are known as geophones or seismometers. They are also called detectors, transducers or probes.

 

Industrial GeoPhones
Geophones are used today in a variety of applications that are far removed from their original purpose as earthquake detectors. Geospace Technologies began producing geophones over three decades ago and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of inertial sensors. Geospace Technologies geophones have been taken to sea, dropped from the air, buried on the battlefield, attached to machinery and deployed on the moon.

INTRUSION DETECTION

Security and surveillance systems employ geophones to
detect movement along borders, perimeters and in buildings.

MACHINERY ANALYSIS

Geophones are mounted on strategic locations to monitor machinery performance, wear and failure.

MACHINERY BALANCING

Geophones are used to analyze angular motion and wobble in both fabrication and assembly of shafts, bearings and flywheels.

VIBRATION MONITORING

Measurement of vibration levels to locate and position critical machinery and equipment in factories and offices. Low-cost geophones are an ideal
solution to this problem.

STRUCTURAL EVALUATION

Geophones detect seismic and microseismic events to predict and analyze deformation of buildings, dams, mines and bridges.
