Short-period Seismometer

Model S-13J

 


 
  • 344 V/(m/sec) sensitivity
  • Mass lock
  • Simplified field maintenance

    The S-13J is a 1.0 Hz short-period sensor that is ideal for portable applications which require exceptional performance in a small size. The design and resulting stability of the S-13J are inherited from the time-proven
    Model S-13. These features result in a sensor that seldom requires adjustment and is simple to maintain in the field. A package called S-13J/3 contains three sensors S-13J perpendicularly mounted on a base plate with an air buble and a handle.
