Instrument Orientation Made Easy and Inexpensive
If you've ever deployed a seismometer or other magnetic instrument in the field, you've likely been frustrated with how difficult it is to measure it's orientation. You can't get your compass close, but you want to take a measurement. The solution has been to use a broomstick that is visually aligned with the seismometer and measure that. It's not that accurate, can be time consuming, and is subject to the bias of the technician. The other options are gyrocompasses that can run into six figures or determining the orientation with time consuming post-processing. Our new LSO-100 makes this process simple, fast, and inexpensive.
Using your new tool is simple! Insert your compass, level the device, turn on the laser, and take your measurement! Field technicians can be trained quickly with our online resources and demonstration videos. The LSO100 can be used on post holes, above ground, or vault installations!
Taking your orientation measurements will only take about 60 seconds, enabling you to get to more instruments in a single field day, reducing installation times and cost. This tool will quickly become an essential part of your deployment kit.
The LSO100 fits into any department's budget with instruments starting at just a few hundred dollars. Your instrument will be built to your specific requirements quickly with our in-house services.
