Triaxial Velocity Monitor

  • Professional grade seismograph with orthogonal east, north, and vertical geophones
  • Measure local and distant earthquake motion both horizontally and vertically 
  • Detect all magnitude local seismic activity, and larger earthquakes from across the globe
  • Advanced sensor capabilities for high quality seismic data across all axes
  • Outdoor Only:  Includes a custom built IP67 rated dust proof, bug proof, all weather enclosure
  • All turnkey products come pre-assembled
SKU: N/A Categories: ,


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.

  1. Jochen Richert

    It all started with a geophone from another manufacturer, which unfortunately can only be operated via a serial interface. Since I want to use all my instruments over the LAN, I started searching and found the Raspberry Shake. In combination with jAmaseis I got a very nice curve display which is easy to interpret even for laymen. Since I built or assembled many of my devices mostly by myself and could save money, I bought the components and equipped the device with its own waterproof case and Güralp compatible connectors. The price-performance ratio is good for me, the contact with Branden and later with the support was always very professional and fast. I can only recommend this device.

    This is a very nice device. Cannot say anything wrong about it. If it were broadband, it would cost a lot more (and broadband instruments have much higher requirements on deployment).
