Vanguard Construction Solutions is a leading provider of seismographs for purchase specifically for construction vibration monitoring needs. Vibration analysis is critical to any construction project, whether the vibration source is blasting, pile driving, heavy construction equipment or another man-made activity; our seismographs can do the job.
We recommend Mini-Seis III™ and Mini-Seis™ seismographs because they provide the best value for all types of vibration monitoring. As an authorized distributor of White Industrial Seismology products, we can provide the support services needed to have confidence in your seismograph purchase.
The Mini-Seis III™ is our next generation seismograph. It features over 500 MB of on-board memory, as well as USB support for computer communication and writing data to a USB thumb drive. Operating modes include Waveform, Histogram, Histogram/Waveform and Manual Trigger Modes. A system log tracks when the instrument is turned on and off, changes to the operational setup, and whether or not any triggers occurred during a waveform operation. Options include A-weighting and special ranges. This package is available at an affordable price.
