The Sercel DSU3 is digital sensor that receives seismic data in 3-C components.
Based on MEMS (Micro-machined Electro-Mechanical Sensor) technology, these digital accelerometers provide a broadband linear response (DC to 800 Hz) and very low distortion.
The DSU3 digitizes data from a single ground station and its three orthogonal components allow it to accurately record the ground motion on all three axes. This is a significant improvement over traditional analog P-wave geophones that only record the vertical component. Utilization of the full seismic wave field, when accurately recorded and processed, enhances the seismic interpretation and reservoir characterization to help reduce F & D costs.
