Build your RS3D from scratch! This DIY version includes the RS3D circuit board only. Download the Raspberry Shake software, add your own geophone sensors and Raspberry Pi computer, and create your own enclosure to house your new device.
Incorporating three weak-motion geophone sensors, the fully assembled RS3D is our most sensitive seismograph for recording seismic activity of all magnitudes, both vertically and laterally.
The RS1D, RS3D, RS4D and RS&BOOM have the same capabilities for detecting ground motion in the vertical dimension. However, the RS3D replicates these abilities in the horizontal dimensions, providing the user with a more complete view of the Earth motion in all three axes (east, north, and vertical; triaxial). This is especially useful for users who want a clearer picture of an earthquake’s S waves, which generally are more prominent across the horizontal plane.
Being one of our most advanced sensors, it is the perfect solution for serious enthusiasts with a strong interest in the subject, as well as seismologists, geologists, and professional geophysicists that require high quality measurements of both the vertical and horizontal axes.
