Alben Cube multichannel digital acquisition system

Alben Cube multichannel digital acquisition system (up to 36 channels) specifically designed for fixed installations for long-term monitoring of seismic events on civil, industrial and monumental works.

Alben Cube is a multi-channel acquisition system suitable for long-term monitoring of dams and structures in general where it is required the installation of many dynamic sensors, accelerometers or velocimeters.

This digital acquirer allows you to acquire up to 36 channels in multiples of 6, placed in a single cabinet with wall or floor mounting.
The communication system via LAN cable allows to cover distances up to 300m; alternatively, the connection to the system from remote can be made via 4G modem, fiber optic, WiFi and more on request.
The configuration is done through a simple WEB interface without the need for dedicated applications.

VIBROSOFT or SOLWEB data processing software, enables efficient dynamic monitoring networks.
