Earthquakes. Volcanoes. Tsunamis. Global Warming. Nuclear Proliferation. Nanometrics is a world leader in the development of seismological instruments and networks used to monitor, investigate and help understand these global events.
All of the Trillium family of sensors are available for use in OBS deployments. Sensors are packaged within pressure spheres with active gimbal systems for leveling during deployment. Nanometrics currently works with SCRIPPS in the US who provides the pressure vessels and gimbal systems.
Taurus is a revolution in the integration of performance, capability and packaging in a field portable seismograph. It is an all-in-one design that is small, lightweight and complete. This hand-held instrument can directly interface with almost any sensor, record continuous data for over 600 days, and operate using a mere 680 mW. This next-generation portable combines all the attributes of a stand-alone recorder with the connectivity required to harness the benefits of today's Internet, wireles...
A compact portable sensor offering superior broadband performance over a wide temperature range with very low self noise. This low self-noise makes the Trillium 120P/PA ideal for local, regional and tele-seismic studies in both observatory and portable applications. Portable network users will appreciate the low power consumption and reliable operation over a temperature range of ±45ºC without re-centering.
Standing at just 128 mm (5.04") tall with a diameter of only 90 mm (3.54"), Trillium Compact combines the superior performance of a broadband seismometer with the installation convenience of a rugged geophone. The instrument incorporates a symmetric triaxial force feedback sensor with a response flat to velocity from 120 seconds to 100 Hz. Scientists no longer need to compromise on performance in applications demanding small, highly portable seismometers.
The Trillium 240 is an exceptional very broadband low noise seismometer ideally suited to portable and fixed network applications. Trillium 240 has a response flat to velocity from 240 seconds to 35 Hz and a self-noise below the NLNM from 100 seconds to 10 Hz.
The Trident is an industry leading digitiser, designed for use with the Taurus Portable Seismograph or Cygnus transceiver. The Trident features 24 bit performance in a compact, robust package offering typical dynamic range of 142 dB. The Trident Digitiser's versatility allows for an optimal network design flexibility. Numerous Trident digitisers can be daisy-chained to form a multi-channel system.
The Titan is a force balance accelerometer providing exceptional performance over a wide frequency range from DC to 225 Hz. The Titan is aimed at higher precision strong motion and structural monitoring applications, where scientists and engineers require exceptional dynamic range combined with ultra-low self-noise performance comparable to that of some broadband seismometers.
Atlas was developed by Nanometrics as an interactive data processing package for extracting, locating, and organizing digital seismograph data from Earthworm databases, SEED files, Nanometrics DataServer and Nanometrics Stores.
