Seismometer CME-4311-OBS

The CME-4211-OBS and CME-4311-OBS seismometers are specially adapted for ocean bottom applications and are versions of the CME-4211 and CME-4311 models correspondingly.

These models share main technical parameters with corresponding regular versions but have a specially designed compact lightweight case, a flat flexible signal cable and consume less power. Specially designed hardware allows the seismometers to be installed inside titanium or glass waterproof spheres usually used in ocean bottom installations.
