Geomatrix add a Lightning Seismic vibrator system to the rental pool.

24 July 2019

Lightning S-Wave Mode

The Lightning Seismic Vibrator source has been developed or near surface ground engineering and exploration. Able to generate either compression or shear waves at forces exceeding 1000N this portable source is ideal for shallow seismic reflection or complimenting passive seismic records.

The electric tracked vehicle supplied with the Lightning rental system can be loaded into the back of a high top van fully assembled for easy fast transport and deployment. With sufficient battery power for one and half days of field operation the tracked electric vehicle can cope with inclines of up to 15º and access areas which are restricted to vehicles.
