Seismic Mechatronics developed the eVibe technology. The eVibe is an electrically powered seismic source for carbon neutral seismic acquisition. This enables us to provide a sustainable service to exploration companies to map critical raw materials and (green) energy sources better and cheaper.
The eVibe technology uses special electric motors to generate very accurate and repeatable signals to map the subsurface in detail. Therefore, our electric seismic sources have features that conventional hydraulic vibrators are unable to reach.
Yes, all our sources are battery powered. Still, all sources can be powered by generator or grid power.
The eVibes use direct drive motors. Therefore, a “frictionless” movement is created to generate acoustic signals. In other words, no energy is lost when creating the acoustic signals.
A hydraulic valve/piston is designed around friction since its pumping oil from one chamber of the piston to the other under high pressures. This created viscous losses, wear and tear and is temperature dependent. Therefore, a lot of energy is wasted and high levels of harmonic distorion are created. This needs to be compensated with a lot of force.
The eVibes use direct drive motors. Therefore, a “frictionless” movement is created to generate acoustic signals. As a result, the internal harmonic distortion is very low ca. 3%.
We can use locally available carriers. Generally, we use (electric) ATV’s/mules for the Ligthning eVibe. And small (electric) telehandlers/zoomboom for the Synchro and Storm eVibe
