DAQlink 4 Seismograph

The Distributed DAQlink4 System is the combination of a standard DAQlink4 Seismograph and internal, high-speed, network extenders. Using inexpensive twisted pair telephone cable, these network extenders will send triggering times and receive seismic data from other DAQlinks. These cable links can send reach 10,000 ft, or three kilometers in length.
The entire system is connected to a computer which controls the seismograph network and stores the acquired seismic data. This computer can be simultaneously providing Quality Control as the project is acquired. The final data files can be stored in SEG-2, SEG-D, SEG-Y, ASCII or MiniSEED format.

It may operate as Stand-Alone Seismograph, operate as an Acquisition System, Use a sledgehammer and hammer switch

The many features are included:  Passive Monitoring, True Continuous Recording, Use Cellular Modem for Remote Data Collection, GPS for timing and location, Use LTA (Long Term Average) or STA (Short Term Average) to detect events, Correlator, and many more.


Technical Specifications

DAQlink4 is the fourth generation of portable seismograph systems designed by Seismic Source. It can be configured as a stand-alone monitoring system, a refraction system or a distributed seismic reflection system. Vscope software controls the seismograph, providing acquisition control, data QC and file storage. This seismograph utilizes industry standard Ethernet for command, control, and fast data file transfer.
