IPG5000 | Impulse Generator

The Impulse Generator IPG5000 (formerly named IPG1005) is the high voltage supply to the seismic borehole sources BIS-SH and SBS42. The energy is stored in a large capacitor bank which discharges through a mechanical switch.

The IPG5000 is controlled by a Remote Control Unit (RCU). The RCU allows the user to start the seismic survey by a single or continuous shot release. The repetition rate is freely selectable under continuous operation. The RCU is connected to the seismograph to send an accurate trigger signal.

IPG800 | Impulse Generator

The Impulse Generator IPG800 is the high voltage supply to the seismic borehole source BIS-SH-DS. The energy is stored in capacitors which discharge through a mechanical switch. The lightweight IPG800 is incorporated in a robust PeliTM case.

The IPG800 is operated by a Remote Control Unit (RCU) which is used to start a pre-defined sequence of shots or to stop the operation. The RCU is connected to the seismograph to send an accurate trigger signal.
