SUMMIT M Vipa is a three-channel seismic station designed for vibration monitoring with an additional channel for noise monitoring. The station has built-in lithium-ion battery, making SUMMIT M Vipa an excellent solution for autonomous mobile measurements. The presence of remote control with automatic data transmission allows to connect several stations via Ethernet or using a radio channel to create a vibration monitoring network. High-resolution 24-bit ADC provides high dynamic range and ultra-sensitive vibration monitoring for both continuous and triggered recording.

DMT-3D/DIN is a seismometer used with SUMMIT M Vipa system for vibration and microseismic monitoring. The sensor is equipped with three geophones with a frequency range from 1 to 315 Hz. Due to its weight, for most applications, the device does not require additional mounting, but if necessary, it can be fixed above the central mounting hole with a bolt. For ease of setup and installation, the seismometer has a built-in level.

Available Extension / Accessories:
  • Seismology extension - increased sensitivity and dynamic range of > 122 dB, additional sample rates: 125 Hz 250 Hz, 500 Hz, optional SeedLink server
  • Printer - external serial protocol printer
  • Alarm switch - external relays for switching external alarm devices, can operate via digital I/O interface of VIPA or remotely via mobile network
  • Intelligent sensor supply - external sensor supply for connecting third party ICP-type sensors
