Sercel Upgrades Seismic Monitoring Tools

November 7, 2012

The new UNITE cableless acquisition system provides longer operating autonomy and increased wireless data harvesting, and the enhanced SG-5 geophone sensor offers the benefit of a natural frequency response well below the 10-Hz industry standard.

PARIS /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Sercel has launched a new generation of UNITE, its industry-leading cableless acquisition system, as well as a new geophone sensor, the SG-5.

The new larger-capacity internal battery of the new-generation UNITE gives the system two weeks of operating autonomy. New data management software has also been added, increasing the system's wireless data harvesting rate by 50%.

The new SG-5 sensor offers the advantage of a low natural frequency response at 5 Hz, well below the 10 Hz industry standard, making it the perfect sensor for microseismic applications.

When deployed together, the new, more compact UNITE cableless system and the new SG-5 have a combined weight of less than 2 kg.

Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, said: "More than 25 customers are already using our UNITE cable-free system. We are convinced that by offering these new enhancements, with the latest generation of UNITE and our new SG-5 geophone, we will further strengthen our position in the land acquisition market. Our launch of this new combination underlines our commitment to meeting our customers' needs by offering the best equipment solution for every seismic application."
