The Lightning seismic source is a 1700N (400lbs) electric seismic system, which is capable of handling many engineering and monitoring jobs. This system is capable of generating both P-waves and S-waves. With its wide frequency range and low harmonic distortion this electric vibroseis system produces unseen resolution images. Unique in its kind, this vibrator is available in a 20 bar watertight option which makes it  suitable for transition zone seismic applications.

fully electric

The Lightning is fully electric. Two 50 ah lithium ion batteries are used to keep the system running all day long. It is also possible to power the source by a generator or connect it to the grid.

High productivity shooting

Connecting the Lightning seismic source and tow hitch lift to a carrier makes it very productive. Moreover, the system can be mounted on any type of vehicle, 4x4, buggy etc.


Multiple Lightning sources can be synchronized in both p- and s-wave mode to create an array of sources and increase force.
