The Syscal Jr is an all-purpose resistivity imaging and sounding system for environmental applications. The system can be supplied as a standard sounding system capable of recording two measurements simultaneously, perfect for performing offset Wenner sounding arrays. The second recording channel significantly improves data acquisition time when the instrument is fitted with internal switching board for 48 (Switch-48) or 72 (Switch-72) electrodes for Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT).
The output current is automatically adjusted (automatic ranging) to optimise the input voltage values and ensure the best measurement quality. The system is designed to automatically perform pre-defined sets of resistivity measurements with roll-along capability.
Compact, easy-to-use and field proof, the Syscal Jr Switch measures both resistivity and chargeability (IP). With a maximum power output of 100W at 400V the Syscal Jr is suitable for most near surface geophysical prospection applications, such as pollution monitoring and mapping, salinity control, depth-to-rock determination and weathered bedrock mapping. In high resistance environments it may be necessary to use the Syscal Jr’s bigger bother the Syscal Pro.
