TitanEA

Summary

The TitanEA is a strong motion Ethernet accelerograph specifically designed for networked deployments on (or in) large civil structures such as nuclear reactors, multi-story buildings, bridges and hydro-electric dams.

The TitanEA features the Class “A” Titan triaxial force balance sensor and its industry-leading dynamic range meets or exceeds the performance requirements of any local regulations for sensor specification.

It uses Precision Time Protocol or PTP Timing, which provides timing accuracy of .001ms to all sensors within an array, without the need for individual GPS connectivity at hard-to-reach sensor locations.

Also unique to the TitanEA is the single CAT5 Ethernet connection providing power, timing and data streaming capability. This provides maximum flexibility for sensor placement within a structure, costs less and is easier to install compared to the analogue cables required of less sophisticated instrumentation.

Event statistics (PGA, PGV, PGD, Sa) for each TitanEA and all TitanEAs within an array are accessible with any web-enabled device via the easily accessible events page resident within the GUI of each individual accelerograph, eliminating the need for a central computer within an array.

Nanometrics’ TitanEA might be right for you if:

  • You’re installing networked deployments on (or in) a large civil structure
  • You want to minimize back-up power requirements and overall deployment costs
  • You don’t want to deal with expensive and cumbersome analogue cables
  • You need event statistics to be accessible on any web-enabled device
