Do you prefer to build things yourself? If so, this product is for you!
Introducing the Raspberry Shake 4D – A serious upgrade with more sensors, more power and faster output. Detect and record both strong or weak earthquakes and vibrations in all directions.
What you have included in this listing is only the essentials necessary to have a working Raspberry Shake 4D – The custom Raspberry Shake 4D board and the Earth motion monitoring sensor, called a Geophone (everything else is sold separately).
Like the name suggests, the 4D has FOUR sensors. Combined with the geophone from the original Raspberry Shake, we have added 3 strong motion MEMs accelerometers to give the device a total of four recording channels.
The circuit board of the Raspberry Shake 4D incorporates four 24 bit digitizers, each sampling the Earth’s motion at 100 samples per second (double its predecessor). We have also been able to boost the data transmission rate from one packet per second to four, which makes our latest version of the Raspberry Shake Earthquake Early Warning compatible.
This is a great project for people who love putting things together. It is not overly complicated, but we would class it as a medium difficulty level. Ideal for makers, creators and Do It Yourselfers.
You can use your own Raspberry Pi computer. Supported Raspberry Pi models include the Pi Zero, Pi Zero W, 3 Model B, 3 Model B+, 2 Model B, and Model B+. The older Model B with two diagonally-placed mounting holes is not supported. We also provide all of the details so that you can build the enclosure on your own too, including 3D printing files and/ or laser cutter files.
The Raspberry Shake and some of the software that lives on the Raspberry Pi are licensed under the Raspberry Shake License. We have made this available at no additional charge for personal use. If you are interested in commercial or institutional use or some use other than for a personal hobby activity, please purchase the License. You can read the license terms here.
