151B-120 Observer

151B-120 Observer

High Performance Broadband Seismometer

Best in class


The Observer broadband seismometer is used worldwide for local, regional and global seismicity studies. It contains one vertical and two horizontal independent sensors with built-in electronic feedback circuit and features low noise with a large dynamic range.

The low self-noise performance makes the Observer an ideal seismometer for seismicity studies in different installation configurations, including observatory and portable, surface and posthole applications. The Observer broadband seismometer is a force-balance feedback sensor available with frequency bandwidth 0.0083 Hz (120 sec) – 50 Hz.

he 151B Observer has built-in leveling and mass lock/unlock facilities. The leveling mechanism includes two bubble levels, three adjustable feet and three locknuts, located on the chassis.

A mass zero-position adjusting mechanism performs automatic mass centering. As soon as the seismometer is powered it checks the zero position of each component’s mass and automatically adjusts the zero position when required.
