Advanced Sensors & Accessories

Our sensors are rugged, reliable and built to last. Each advanced sensor is designed, manufactured and calibrated by Instantel.

Our advanced sensors, such as the high frequency geophones and hydrophones, require a monitoring unit, like the Minimate Pro, that can record higher sample rates. Higher sample rates offer more granularity in the event data and a better representation of the sensor's measured data. Instantel's desktop software, THOR, with advanced features, is required for reviewing and analyzing the events with advanced sensors.
