Syscal Kid
from Iris Instruments

Specifically designed for very shallow, high resolution resistivity sounding and profiling, the Kid is the most compact of the Syscal range whilst retaining the well-known reliability and measurement accuracy of its counter parts.

The Kid has one measurement channel and can be supplied with optional switch24 circuitry for undertaking Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) measurements. ERT quadrupole sequences are automatically computed by the instrument for the most common electrode arrays based off of the number of electrodes, electrode interval and depth levels. For more unconventional applications the user can manually define the quadrupole geometry.

Easy-to-use, automatic, field proof, the Syscal Kid is ideal for archaeological, geological mapping and civil engineering applications.
