NDAS-RT is a multipurpose programmable module designed for seismic monitoring and real-time seismic safety.
It can operate as a node of the Seiscomp 3 networks. The module is specifically designed to expand the networking capabilities of digital seismic sensors produced by R-sensors. However, it can also be used as a standalone device.
The basic features of NDAS-RT include support for CME-xxND and MTSS-xxND series digital seismometers and accelerometers, SeedLink protocol over Ethernet, 6 auxiliary ADC channels and two groups of relay contacts to control external devices.
Modifications are available with additional network interfaces including RS-485, CAN, Wi-Fi, GSM / 3G / LTE, Bluetooth, etc.
An open platform running Linux allows widely adapting the NDAS-RT software to the specific tasks of filtering, processing and transmitting the seismic data.
NDAS-RT allows greatly expanding the capabilities of data loggers having COM- or USB-ports only. Special software modules can develop a complete seismic station with a SeedLink server and a web interface to configure the instrument remotely and to view the signals. This solution is ideal for users of Delta-Geon, Baykal-ASN and other data loggers.
Application notes on using NDAS-RT to construct real-time monitoring systems for a bridge as an example.
