The GiX was developed out of years of experience in seismic instrumentation as well as monitoring of civil engineered structures such as dams, nuclear power plants, pipelines, tunnels, bridges, tall buildings and unique structures all over the world.
GiX provides scientists with a state of the art high dynamic seismic recorder and engineers with a valuable tool to fully understand and analyse the dynamics of structures in the operating environment. With GiX the seismic activity at a region or the dynamics affecting a structure including but not limited to acceleration, velocity, displacement, temperature, current, wind speed, wind direction, stress and pressure may be monitored and recorded.
Dynamic channel sample rates of 50, 100 and 200 SPS, optionally 8, 20, 125, 250 SPS can be provided. The system bases on synchronised 3- or 6- channel A/D converters. The signals are digitised using the over-sampling and decimation technique resulting in superior data quality.
The heart of the GiX software is GeoDAS, a proven data logger and data analysis package developed by GeoSIG Ltd. GeoDAS, integrated into the GiX recording system, provides a richly configured set of user-friendly capabilities, displays and analytical tools.
In addition to the near real-time display of the dynamic channels the system provides static data like mean, max, min, and peak values. The GiX monitors the real-time data generated by each of the sensors attached to the system and compares the measured data to three fully independent alarm trigger criteria. The ring buffer size, the post event time, trigger thresholds and relay alarm on/off times may be selected by the customer.
A comprehensive surveillance, diagnostics and reporting system through alarm relays, SMS and E-mail can be optionally provided.
Enhanced connectivity via hi-speed USB, Ethernet, and Serial (RS-232) ports plus a VGA port for an external monitor makes the GiX compatible for today's and tomorrows needs.
