Low-noise force-balance broadband digital seismometer CME-6111ND

CME-6111ND is a low-noise force-balance broadband digital seismometer.

A bandwidth of up to 60 sec provides recording of the most remote seismic events. 

This seismometer combines the low-noise molecular-electronic sensing element (transducer) and the electrodynamic force-balance that result in a very flat response over a wide frequency range, a high dynamic range and a greatly improved time and temperature stability of the parameters. 

This model is very rugged and does not require any special means or procedures for transportation and installation. The only procedure to start the operation is to place the seismometer on a rigid horizontal surface, turn the power on and wait for several minutes. 

This seismometer can be used in various applications such as seismic observatories, seismological surveys, seismic microzoning and passive broadband seismic exploration.
