Introducing the RS3D… the KING of the Shakes! This is our top of the line seismograph featuring three orthogonally positioned geophone velocity sensors, for millisecond accuracy and quality of data.  This is for both vertical and lateral motion.

Our turnkey model is ready to go out of the box, combining the seismometer sensors, digitizer, hyper-damper and computer all into a highly portable single unit. With a sample rate of 100 samples per second and a data shipment rate of four packets per second, it is Earthquake Early Warning capable. Monitor local and regional seismicity, geothermal activity, micro-seismic motion, and of course watch as waves from large earthquakes roll in from around the world.

The RS3D is a serious piece of kit for any true enthusiast or professional looking for high quality data across all three axes (east, north, and vertical; triaxial). It is highly compatible, easily integrated into existing networks, and can be deployed rapidly.
