TROMINO® – All-in-one seismic station

Supporting geologists, geophysicists and civil engineers in their daily activities…

TROMINO® was specifically conceived and designed for the dynamic characterization of subsoils and structures with the highest accuracy and the lowest effort. Very small in size and low in power consumption, it also operates in array configuration through an exclusive radio communication system. The electronics and mechanics behind TROMINO® are continuing to evolve, following the latest technological advancements. The newest versions, with augmented dynamics and sensitivity, permit outstanding signal-to-noise ratios even at the low frequencies of seismological interest.

TROMINO® is provided with the user-friendly Grilla software which allows to archive and analyze the recordings coming from the MOHO instruments:

  • Extended H/V analysis
  • MASW, ReMi, ESAC,…
  • Joint fit of H/V and dispersion curves
  • Modal analysis of structures
  • Vibration analysis
  • H/V contouring module


Technical Specifications

TROMINO® is a small (1 dm3, < 1 kg) all-in-one instrument, equipped with:

  • 3 velocimetric channels (adjustable dynamic range)
  • 3 accelerometric channels
  • 1 analog channel
  • GPS receiver
  • built-in radio transmitter/receiver (for synchronization among different units)
  • radio triggering system (for MASW surveys and similar)

TROMINO® works in the [0.1, 1024] Hz range and is powered by 2 AA (1.5 V) batteries only!
