GeoSIG's latest offering in central data acquisition systems is fora
, our most advanced multichannel central monitoring and recording system. fora
— part of the CR series — is a 19" rack module with Slot-in Modules (SiMs) inserted into vertical slots, and it features an extremely flexible 24 Bit (or optionally 36 Bit) multichannel recorder. It has up to 36 channels, and by combining several fora
systems, hundreds of channels can be monitored. Data from acceleration, velocity, displacement, strain, meteorological or any other type of sensors can be monitored and recorded with superior data quality.
There is true simultaneous sampling with the shared clock for up to 36 channels, and fora's
capable of communication via Ethernet TCP/IP, internal landline modem*, external GMS modem*, external satellite modem*, external GPRS modem*, or external UMTS/3G modem*.
Its modular architecture and industry standard interfaces offer high versatility, easy expansion, upgradeability and long-term availability of spare parts. Its design is based on years of experience in creating solutions for earthquake, seismic, structural, dynamic and static monitoring.
User-configurable periodical sensor test and periodical state of health (SOH) report based on comprehensive test of the instrument, which can be requested at any time, offers assurance of system reliability.
Its various applications include:
- Structural Health and Response Monitoring
- Earthquake and Seismic Monitoring
- Ambient Vibration Testing
- Induced Vibration Monitoring and Notification
- Building Code-Compliant Instrumentation
- Seismic Alarm and Safe Shutdown
GeoDAS, a proven data acquisition and evaluation package developed by GeoSIG, complements fora
, providing a highly flexible user-friendly capabilities, and graphical, analytical and reporting tools with automation.
