Long-Period Magnetotelluric Station LEMI-417


LEMI-417 digital seven-component magnetotelluric station (MTS) (three magnetic + three electric channels) is intended for the measurement of natural magnetic and electric field components and their variations in laboratory and field conditions.

The magnetometer is produced on the base of flux-gate sensor, all three components of which are implemented in the same thermostable housing. The electrometer has four channels with high input resistance and offset compensation, which can operate with any type of measuring electrodes. The electronic unit allows acquisition, processing and storage of data about magnetic and electric fields variations in internal memory and their transmission to the computer via RS-232 interface. Built-in GPS receiver provides satellite synchronization of the internal clock and the coordinates of the MTS location. MTS operation algorithm allows organizing both autonomous and synchronous operation of a set of the MTS installed at the studied area. Low magnetism of all components allows the magnetic sensor operating conveniently close to the electronic unit.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

LEMI-417 major advantages are very low temporal drift and high accuracy of measurements, what makes it especially efficient for deep sounding application. LEMI-417 is high sensitive device, which has unique low power consumption – 1 W at the maintenance of main technical characteristics at the level of the best word standards. The station has waterproof housing and can autonomously operate during 6 months and longer in wide tem-perature range.
