Seismic Monitoring of Dams


Model MR3003DMS by SYSCOM Instruments


The MR3003DMS seismic monitoring system is designed especially for dams and detects strong motion vibrations upon reservoir walls and dams, including tailing dams.

The “red box” is compact and contains the sensor, recorder, internal battery, AC/DC convertor with over voltage protection, with terminals for fiber optic connections between units and a control room computer and the internet, as well as three output relays (optional).

Command and control is via an embedded web server which provides a self-explanatory interface to system set-up and control.

Easy installation and virtually no maintenance. Units have a self-test pulse to confirm that system is operating and active.

Features include:

  • Internal MEMS accelerometer, 4G range, DC to 600 HZ
  • Vertical or Horizontal mounting (specified on order)
  • Internal backup battery, around 60 hours
  • Internal SD card
  • Optional GPS timing (master unit synchronises with slave units)
  • Optional output relays
