SmartSolo IGU-16HR 3C



The seismic industry continues to demand that exploration is carried out at ever-greater scale and receiver density, while somehow attempting to balance the requirement to keep project costs under control. To provide the industry with asolution to this challenge, SmartSolo Inc. has dveloped the SmartSolo intelligent seismic sensor. 

SmartSolo is based on DT-SOLO, the high-sensitivity geophone and focuses on the principal of seismic exploration which is known as 3W(Wave = high fdelity signal;When = accurate timing;and Where = the location), incorporated with electronics and software technologies in mobile internet era. 

This smart sensor provides adequate info for highest-quality seismic data acquisition while keeping its functions and structure as simple as possible. Electronics and software technologies are super reliable, mature and cost-efective in mobile internet era. These technologies are used for SmartSolo at maximum possible scale. The result: the geophone is something smart, reliable, user-friendly, cost-effective and could run in any harsh environment.

High-quality seismic data derives from high-quality seismic sensors. DT-SOLO is a high-sensitivity geophone specially designed for point receiver applications. It is well-known in the seismic industry as the top-quality high-sensitivity geophone which is widely used by contractors and equipment manufacturers.
