ΘTHETA-TTD120-VEL.

THETA-TTD120-VEL

Product Overview

Theta-TTD120-Vel is a unified digital output broadband seismometer, a broadband feedback sensor and a precision 24 bit 8 channel digitiser are housed inside a waterproof enclosure.

The low noise high dynamic range broadband feedback seismometer is based on a truly rectilinear suspension system which does not require mass lock. Eight channel 24 bit digitiser exploits the high dynamic range of the sensor forming a perfect portable sensor system.
