A compact-size velocimeter/active geophone MTSS-1001 is a 1-component version of MTSS-2003. It combines a high sensitivity, wide dynamic range and ability to operate at any orientation to gravity.
MTSS-1001 is supplied with a screw tail pin for ground installations. Owing to its high sensitivity, this one geophone may replace up to 20 conventional geophones.
It can also be supplied with a mounting base which allows installing the 3 sensors of the same type orthogonally.
The MTSS-1001 frequency characteristic with the poles and zeros presentation is available at the link on the website of Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS).
