The RDL//Vibe for low frequency vibration monitoring applications

low frequency vibration monitoring at Longships Lighthouse

Many applications of vibration monitoring equipment require low frequencies to fully understand the effects of vibration on properties and structures, from nearby disturbances. Typical Geophones and vibration monitoring systems measure Peak Particle Velocity with a frequency range from 4.5 Hz to 100 Hz. This can result in underestimated and inaccurate low frequency vibration recordings of…
