Introducing the Raspberry Shake 4D including our heavy duty fully sealed enclosure – A serious upgrade with more sensors, more power and faster output. Detect and record both strong or weak earthquakes and vibrations in all directions and it’s completely weatherproof! 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.
Need some extra protection? No problem, we’ve got you covered. The hardened enclosure, included here, will protect your unit against rainfall, dust and bugs. We call this an “IP67” enclosure, which means that it is fully weather proof, dust tight and can withstand immersion (30 minutes at 1 meter). In an effort to bring you a more robust solution, the enclosure shown in the product photos above has been replaced by a larger enclosure (160 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm) and the plastic connections have been replaced with metal ones. New photos are coming soon!
This is a complete ready-to-go, turn-key personal earthquake detection device or seismograph. It is a fully plug and play solution, great for the novice, home scientists, gadget lovers, and anyone who wants their 4D ready to go out of the box!
For your added peace of mind, we test the unit for a few days to make sure that every single software element is working to spec and that your Raspberry Shake is well calibrated. Just take your Raspberry Shake 4D out of the box, plug it in and connect to see the Earth move.
