The RS3D is our most advanced seismograph featuring three orthogonally positioned geophone velocity sensors, for millisecond accuracy and quality of data to record seismic activity of all magnitudes, both vertically and laterally.
The three high precision seismometer sensors combine together with a digitizer, hyper-damper and computer, all into a highly portable single unit. With a sample rate of 100 samples per second and a data shipment rate of four packets per second, it is Earthquake Early Warning capable. Monitor local and regional seismicity, geothermal activity, micro-seismic motion, and of course watch as waves from large earthquakes roll in from around the world.
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.
All Raspberry Shake models are highly compatible, easily integrated into existing networks, and can be deployed rapidly. Find out what the experts are saying from multiple peer-reviewed articles about Raspberry Shakes.

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).
