Reliable tools for efficient surveys
With more than forty years of field experience, we know the importance of reliable, compatible, easy-to-use tools for specific survey needs. Zonge geophysical data acquisition equipment includes all the tools you need for efficient data collection.
MX-30 Transmitter Input Multiplexor Switch
[caption id="attachment_2302" align="alignright" width="150"] MX30 Transmitter Multiplexor[/caption]
for Cabled Electrode Arrays
An essential component for rapidly acquiring resistivity data using cabled electrode arrays, the MX-30 is a computer-controlled switching interface between a transmitter, a multi-channel receiver (such as the Zonge GDP) and an array of electrodes. Weight: 16 kg (35 lb).
- Use an MX-30 multiplexor with a GDP receiver and ZT-30 transmitter to gather Electrical Resistivity Tomography data.
- Connect transmitter leads to any pair of electrodes, up to 30 electrodes.
- Select any number of electrode pairs for input to the receiver.
- Up to 16 output channels, or purchase fewer channels to reduce initial cost and upgrade later in the field.
- Cascade multiple MX-30s together to address multiple electrode arrays.
- Control configuration via RS-232C serial communications.
- Control software available for laptop.
