Trillium Compact OBS
An ultra-low power broadband seismometer for ocean campaigns.
A reputation for dependability
The Trillium Compact Ocean Bottom Seismometer (OBS) is an ultra-low power broadband seismometer for ocean bottom deployments to 6000m depth. The OBS vessel and gimbal design preserves the full performance of the land-based Trillium Compact seismometer, including its exceptional dynamic range and low noise floor
Performance & Dependability
Incorporating a robust and reliable leveling gimbal that operates over a full 360° range, the Compact OBS will auto-level from all orientations. A full titanium cylindrical pressure vessel for 6000m deployments, or aluminum-anodized enamel painted vessel for 1800m deployments. Proven glass epoxy connectors ensure exceptional resistance to corrosion in marine environments.
Availability via two connections
The system employs two separate connections: the primary analogue connection as well as a digital connection. The digital connector is provided for final configuration and sensor verification prior to deploying the OBS overboard.
Precise auto-leveling from any orientation ensuring successful deployment and implementation.
