SI U•Central Software

The Ultimate Recording and Quality Control System

Seismic Instruments developed the U•Central software for continuous data recording. This software is used to control the complete U•Nodal system via radio in real-time operation or via cable in autonomous mode.

With the Wi-Fi radio option users are able to upload the survey and recording parameters to all units at the same time. Users have continuous seismic and quality control data access similarly to traditional cabled systems. The GUI shows among the others the GPS information, the battery voltage, the memory status, the radio status of the individual U•Nodes and the serial number of the SMGs connected to the U•Nodes.

In autonomous mode users are able to connect multiple U•Nodes to a computer at the same time via a Power over Ethernet switch. So all units can be configured and the stored data can be downloaded at the same time.

This software merges the downloaded data from the individual U•Nodes and it saves them in SEG-D format.

In projects where the recorded signal was generated by an active source this software is used to access all stored data in the individual U*Nodes.

Seismic Instruments and Seismic Source Company have developed a full interface between the SourceLink™ and U•Central software so that users can use several different types of signal source.

The U•Nodal Central System is the software that is used to configure the U•Nodes for a certain layout, for real-time Quality Control (QC) monitoring, and for full precision data download during and after the survey.

The software can run on Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available.
