Data logger Baykal-8

A high-resolution 6-channels seismic data logger "Baikal-8" can be used for recording the signals from external seismic or various sensors with high precision and synchronization with UTC. 

The device can be used for long-term seismic and geophysical measurements including operations under field conditions. 

The Ethernet support allows for using the standard solutions for connecting several devices into a network. FTP and SeedLink support gives possibilities to use the standard software for remote data retrieval.
