Seismic monitoring system with display (SW-74)

A popular seismometer with display
SW-74 uses high resolution servo accelerometer which can detect micro earthquakes.
Seismic monitoring system with display (SW-74)


  • ■ Indication function

    Importance level of information is shown by back color. It can be recognized even by remote watching. On earthquake ocurrence, “ocurrence time”, “peak acceleration”, “seismic intensity scale (measured seismic intensity)” are displayed.

    Indication function

  • ■ Memory function

    Memory function

    Up to 50 time histories can be saved.
    *Option software is needed to export waveform data.

  • ■ Alarm setting

    Alarm setting

    3-step alarm output by acceleration is possible. Alarm level is possible to be set.

  • ■ Easy to operate

    Easy to operate

    Touch panel is adopted. Easy operation makes speedy confirmation in an emergency.

  • ■ Alarm setting

    Compact size makes easy installation. It can be stored in a rack.

  • ■ Power supply

    Select from AC 100 V or DC 24 V (Option)

  • ■ Waveform observation

    Waveform observation

    By connecting with PC on which the option software is installed, various settings of the device and seismic waveform data stored in the internal memory can be acquired.

  • ■ External display (ED74)

    External display (ED74)

    Indicates acceleration amplitude, seismic intensity
    scale and alarm occurence time.

  • ■ Multiple control unit (2 out of 3) CU-5

    ■ Multiple control unit (2 out of 3) CU-5

    This device makes reliability of the relay contact output of
    the alarm signal to control or stop activation higher.
    An alarm signal is output when 2 units out of 3 generate
    alarm signals.
