Low-noise broadband seismometer CME-4311

The three-component low-noise broadband seismometer CME-4311 is well suited both for permanent and portable installations.

This easy-to-install, very reliable instrument does not require any maintenance, mass locking and centering. The instrument offers the cost-effective solution for installations with the noise level close to a Low-Noise Model. 

1-component (vertical or horizontal) version of the CME-4311 model is available.

The CME-4311 frequency characteristic with the poles and zeros presentation is available at the link on the website of Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS).
