Product Description:

  • Rugged and durable: The  NRU N1 is a 1C seismic recorder is designed to withstand the harshest environments, with an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
  • Long battery life: The NRU N1 features a 13.2-amp hour internal battery, providing up to 45 days of continuous operation.
  • Internal Geophone: Make NuSeis YourSeis with any geophone – 2Hz, 4.5Hz, 5Hz, 10Hz, or other.
  • GNSS and BLE comms: The NRU N1 includes built-in GNSS and BLE communications, allowing for easy deployment and retrieval.
  • Expandable storage: The NRU N1 has 8GB of internal data storage, expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card.
  • SEG standard data formats: The NRU N1 outputs SEG standard Seg D and Seg Y data formats, compatible with all major seismic processing software.

More features:

  • Stealth Mode: The NRU N1 seismic recorder is ideal for urban deployment because it can be completely deployed under the surface. This reduces the amount of environmental noise picked up during recording. This method also reduces the risk of theft of equipment.
  • Unmatched coupling: The manual deployment tool creates the perfect-sized hole for the implantation of the node. Therefore, the soil presses laterally against the node, only increasing the coupling factor over time with a high lateral coefficient of friction.

QC: Our nodes transmit, two times per second, via BLE, various health and status measurements, which are easy to collect by driving by the spread or flying it with a drone.

Here’s how the NRU N1 can revolutionize your seismic recording:

Traditional Seismic Recording:

  • Uncover hidden details: With its internal geophone (2Hz, 4.5Hz, 5Hz, 10Hz, or other), the NRU N1 captures subtle ground movements, providing valuable data for earthquake monitoring, geotechnical studies, and more.
  • Deploy and forget: Its long-lasting 13.2-amp hour internal battery allows for weeks of uninterrupted recording, making it perfect for remote deployments.
  • Connect and collaborate: GNSS and BLE communication options enable seamless data transmission and collaboration within your team.
Nodal Recording:
  • Unlock flexibility: The NRU N1’s compact size and wireless capabilities make it ideal for nodal deployments, allowing you to configure dense networks for detailed seismic imaging and monitoring.
  • Cost-effective exploration: Unlike traditional stations, nodal deployments with the NRU N1 are significantly more cost-effective, opening up new possibilities for large-scale surveys and targeted investigations.
  • Real-time insights: Some NRU N1 models offer real-time data transmission, enabling immediate response to critical events and enhanced monitoring capabilities.
Whether a seasoned seismologist or a curious explorer, the NRU N1 empowers you to unlock the secrets hidden within the Earth’s movements. Its versatility, reliability, and compact form factor make it the ideal companion for both traditional and modern seismic recording approaches.


The NRU N1 seismic recorder is ideal for all environments and is the best choice for urban seismic acquisition, even in socially challenged areas. With its high-sensitivity geophone, low-noise electronics, and built-in GNSS and BLE communications, the NRU N1 is easy to deploy and provides excellent seismic data. Make NuSeis YourSeis!
