Trillium Compact Ocean Bottom Seismometer

The Trillium Compact Ocean Bottom Seismometer is available with a titanium enclosure for deployments to 6000m in depth, or with an aluminum enclosure for shallow-water deployments to 1800m.

Its low-profile design minimizes ocean current induced noise effect and it boasts ultra-low power consumption of just 180mw.

It offers a primary analogue connection and a second, separate digital connection for final system verification prior to deploying the OBS overboard, without disturbing the primary connection.

The internal state-of-health data provides valuable information on leveling cycles, leveling corrections and case orientation, providing a powerful data set for optimizing deployment techniques.

The precise, kinematic 360°gimbal auto-levels from any orientation ensuring successful deployment and implementation. Leveling control is internal and can be scheduled or "as necessary" based on instrument tilt and mass position values.

Nanometrics’ Trillium Compact OBS might be right for you if: 

  • You want the exceptional dynamic range and low noise floor of a land-based Trillium Compact

  • You’re looking for a high-performance, 120 second broadband seismometer that integrates with existing short-period or mid-band infrastructure (platforms, power systems and digitizers)

  • You want ultra-low power consumption to reduce battery costs

  • You’d like to minimize the effects of ocean current-induced noise

  • You want the ease of automatic leveling from any orientation
