Micromate Geophones

The Micromate triaxial Geophones measure ground vibration in three planes: vertical, transverse and longitudinal. There are four geophones compatible with the Micromate monitoring unit. Each geophone measures a unique frequency range conforming to standards such as the ISEE, DIN, Swedish blasting and Swedish pile driving specifications. For easy identification, the geophone lids are color-coded by standard.

The Micromate geophones measure ground vibrations induced by construction, blasting, mining, quarry and other operations. Since these vibrations can cause damage to property and structures, local, state and federal regulations govern the levels of vibration these activities can create. Monitoring the vibration levels with an Instantel geophone can help you adjust your vibration inducing activities before these limits are reached and concerns develop. It can also serve as a record to protect you against future claims and liability.

Each geophone is designed with an aluminum housing that stands up to the toughest conditions. The geophone can be bolted directly to hard surfaces or it can be spiked into a soft surfaces. The geophone connects directly to the color-coded geophone port on the Micromate monitoring unit and comes in cable lengths of 2m or 5m. While these cable lengths are standard, Instantel also offers custom cable lengths up to 1000 meters.
