It is not an issue of "if", but "when". The question is, if you are ready for this. The Philippines is a highly seismic country.
Our economic welfare is concentrated in very few highly populated areas. We experience more than 10,000 earthquakes every year. Most earthquakes are very small and do not impact us at all. But now and then there are big ones, and then every number of years there are really devastating earthquakes.. We expect a major quake will hit our beautiful country sometime in the next 10 years. In order to reduce the loss of life and protect our economic investments during an earthquake, it is essential to install advanced stand-alone warning systems.
People freeze during an earthquake. They cannot take quick and essential decisions. They panic. Taking control or command is hard, if not, impossible. Immediate intervention and action is vital to prevent secondary disasters. With real-time warning systems we can automatically stop critical equipment, guide people for safety and inform public about the situation.
There is an available technology to provide you with these solutions. Ask us to learn more about IMV JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph
JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph continuously monitors and records ground movement. It has a Tri-Axial Servo-Type Sensor, the most advanced, most precise and most reliable sensor available in the market. The machine gives out and records real time Ground Movement Acceleration values in units of Gal, real time Modified Mercalli Seismic Intensity and SI Value - Velocity Response Spectrum.
Measuring invisible vibration. Most vibrations can't be seen by the human eye. IMV develops our own sensors to continuously measure and monitor vibrations and movements to safeguard structures, equipment, assets, investments and most importantly - people.
The machine provides immediate alarm annunciation to ensure that the building occupants can be moved to safety, it is used to set off alarms at specifed ground movement levels.
The use of this equipment eliminates unnecessary evacuation during earthquake events. It also assures people that the structure is safe and there is no need to panic.
The 10-output alarm and shut off feature can be utilized to achieve an ultra efficient and highly advanced building management. Each channel can be adjusted to have its own preset acceleration level which can trigger automatic switch off for utilities such as elevators, LPG lines, electricity ines, water lines, automatic doors, airconditioning cooling towers, etc, to prevent secondary disasters as well as take care of of your important and sensitive equipment.
The seismic monitor can also be connected to the building's BMS and FDAS. The machine can also activate pre-recorded voice commands to guide and assure tenants during emergency situations utilizing the building's Public Announcement System.
JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph continuously monitors and records all ground movement in relation to the structural integrity of a building, thus giving you essential, specific and actual data which a designated professional can use in his/her analysis and evaluation of the structure after any earthquake or ground movement event.
This provides faster evaluations to allow quicker decisions by stakeholders and persons-in-charge after major earthquake events.
