Case Study: Tilt Meter

Pentad designed the embedded system for this extremely sensitive tilt meter used in microseismic monitoring and hydraulic fracture mapping. It can measure and record nano radians of tilt in oil fields, volcanoes, and dams. This device is capable of both surface and downhole microseismic and microdeformation analysis. It also features high performance analog data acquisition.
