Seismology and Geoscience
The broad field of seismology and geoscience requires a range of high-tech equipment that makes it possible to detect even the smallest earth movements in the first place. Permanent seismic monitoring makes it possible to localize potential hazards and establish effective long-term protection against the effects.
We offer a broad, specialized portfolio of products and services worldwide for this topic with its utmost social importance. Our service range includes support in the development of new seismometers, certified calibration and structural excitation for seismological research and equipping entire laboratories.
Our seismological products help detect hazards early and make infrastructures safer worldwide.

CS Q-LEAP™ with:
Specializing in seismometers and geophones
The air-bearing vibration exciters from SPEKTRA and APS were specially developed for the calibration of seismometers and geophones. They are characterized by large mounting areas and high maximum payload. Due to the combination of their excellent performance values and simultaneous mechanical load capacity, they can be found in numerous institutes and research facilities. The APS ELECTRO-SEIS® brand is known worldwide for its efficient and reliable long-stroke vibration exciters.
Accessories and Components
Scientific work with our products always requires individual, customized solutions for special challenges. Through our experienced team of developers, we can offer optional accessories that have been created specifically for the demands of seismic work.
Excitation of larger structures
To investigate possible effects of seismic movements on structures or industrial plants, our APS modal exciters can be used to excite large structures in a targeted manner. Optional accessories allow the exciters to be applied in different working modes such as free body mode or fixed at angles between 0° and 90°. Optional reaction masses can be used to additionally increase performance.
Characterization and Calibration
The performance of our DAkkS-accredited calibration laboratory D-K-15183-01-00 is among the best worldwide. You receive reliable, traceable calibration certificates with the lowest possible measurement uncertainties. Factory calibration and verification for your required international or local standards is also possible on request.
