Data logger Baykal-8

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

This data logger 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 instruments into a seismic network. FTP and SeedLink support makes it possible to use the standard software for remote data acquisition.
