The seismic sensors of the station: Trilliun Compact 120 Sec and accelerometer Titan are installed on a pedestal in the equipment vault. Recording instruments: 24-bit ADC Centaur (6 channels) is installed near the sensors. Sample rate: 40 samples/sec/channel for all channels. Timing scale is GPS. Seismic data are transmitted from Centaur output to the satellite modem through the local network. At the same time there is an opportunity to accumulate data on a CD memory card.
