Vibracord Gaia

EPC-UK’s Vibracord Gaia is an advanced ground borne blasting vibration monitoring solution designed for use in challenging quarrying and environmental conditions. Contained within a strong aluminium case and manufactured by equipment specialist, Vibraquipo, Gaia features a hi-contrast illuminated LCD screen, designed to be effective under all light conditions. It’s user friendly and recommended for portable vibration measurement applications. The equipment can be managed, supplied and calibrated in the UK by EPC Metrics.

Application

Gaia includes one 3-axix block of geophones and one microphone to record air overpressure. 

In the quarry environment, the vibration data recorded can be transferred to EPC-UK’s VERTEX© platform, or alternative software, allowing users to analyse and store information including vibration and air overpressure. This enables relevant blast performance to be optimised and environmental compliance to be achieved. Using Gaia, vibration waveforms, timings, amplitudes and values can all be analysed. The FFT can be performed within the desired part of the record and mathematical functions applied as filters, integrations, derivatives and RMS.
