ION has been providing the industry with precision geophones since 1967. Our line of geophones and ancillary equipment capture high-quality data and operate efficiently with all seismic acquisition systems and in all environments and climates. Manufactured and tested under the coveted ISO 9001:2015 certification, ION geophones are unsurpassed in their quality and reliability. They are used in a variety of industrial applications including military/security, structural and machinery vibration monitoring, construction/piling integrity and borehole tools.

A Complete Line of Geophones & Equipment

  • SM-24 – Provides high-fidelity data in 2D and 3D seismic surveys
  • SM-24 HS – High sensitivity geophone designed to offer the highest performance in seismic exploration
  • LF-24 – Low-frequency geophone for vibration monitoring, low-frequency seismic measurement, blast monitoring, vibration measurement of buildings, and site engineering
  • LF-24 DC – Dual compartment, low frequency geophone designed to accommodate applications where the smallest form factor is required for vibration-monitoring and low-frequency seismic measurements
  • SM-5 – low frequency, high sensitivity vertical and horizontal geophones
  • SM-6 – A long coil, travel version of the time-proven SM-4 geophone
  • SM-6 Omni-directional geophones for non-gimballed 3C applications including ocean bottom and down-hole 4D/4C operations
  • SM-7 – Available for broader bandwidth requirements in high resolution applications

Our geophones are complemented and supported by a complete line of ancillary equipment including:

Testers

  • SMT-400 – Fifth-generation tester that once again sets the industry standard for geophone and string testing
  • SMT-40 – Hand-held unit that efficiently checks geophone string resistance, impedance, and polarity

Cables & Connectors

  • Cables – Available in a variety of configurations, length, and weight
  • Connectors – Available for use in every conceivable environment: desert, marsh, transition zone, arctic

Cases
