Jenlogix is pleased to announce the availability of the new generation of crystal-based seismometers, the Palert220. This new type of device is more sensitive than traditional MEMS based sensors and is comparable with many high end/high priced/high maintenance traditional force balance units.
When monitoring large structures for wind effects, as well as the effect of nearby construction, demolition or even heavy traffic, high sensitivity is required to ensure correct assessment. The Palert 220 can provide this level of sensitivity at an affordable price.
Like other Palert devices, the unit can also be used for structural health monitoring, seismic measurements, vibration control and motion analysis. Also, as with other Palert devices, the Palert 220 is calibrated in an international test lab. The benefit is that it does not need re-calibration, saving on the regular need to use expensive calibration engineers.
As one of the new generation of accelerometers using crystal technology, the Palert 220 provides a simple solution to sensitive monitoring. The Palert 220 is also an ideal unit for seismic research, since being a crystal sensor, it requires no ongoing calibration yet has the sensitivity required for detailed analysis. Tall buildings require this extra sensitivity of a Palert 220 to ensure that the wind vibration does not cause any issue with occupants.
Data is also sent directly to the cloud for analysis and allows for engineers to see remotely the issues so they can provide a plan of action accordingly. Onsite benefits include immediate vibration warning, real time value display on LCD, connecting to a Signal Tower to show warning and maintaining a safe working and living environment. Offsite benefits include reporting via web browser of details, Palert 220 push messages from the unit and enabling the engineer to alter work accordingly.
Unlike an earthquake which transmits the vibrations from the ground up, the Palert 220 can effectively monitor the effect of even the smallest of breezes on a building. This information in turn can assist in providing a comfortable environment for the occupants.
As suppliers of the Palert Early Warning Systems in New Zealand, Jenlogix will be attending the training course on Earthquake Early Warning systems and Rapid Structural Health Diagnostics in East Asia, which runs from the 25th of March to the 28th March this year at the Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. This has been organised by the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk International Centre of Excellence-Taipei (IRDR ICoE-Taipei), the International Council for Science Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ICSU ROAP), the Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan (AS), the Taiwan Earthquake Center (TEC), the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) and the San Lien Technology Corp.
The IRDR ICoE-Taipei and its co-organiser, the team of TEC, will hold a training course on earthquake early warning system using low cost sensors. It also encourages learning and exchange of ideas among Asian scientists. This course will focus on earthquake early warning, including hardware and software training. Both lecturers and scientists will share data/studies, and experiences from earthquake early warning and relevant implementation. Exercises and group discussions will be planned to facilitate the communications among the participants.
To strengthen the outcomes of the training courses, "call-for-proposal" will be announced no later than 3-6 months after this training course. The trainees will be invited to submit earthquake early warning research proposals, followed by a competitive reviewing process. Only limited numbers of proposals will be granted for one year. IRDR ICoE-Taipei and ICSU ROAP will review and announce results no later than three months after the closing of the proposal submission. The grantees will be required to submit a report to IRDR ICoE-Taipei and ICSU ROAP no later than three months after the end of the executive period.
The invite was to organisations involved in Earthquake warning such as GNS but only Jenlogix will be attending from New Zealand.
San Lien Technology have invited Jenlogix to the 2019 Climate Impact Monitoring Solution conference (CIMS) in Taipei, Taiwan, March 13th and 14th at Shangri La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei. Because of the joint-acquisition of Siap + Micros by San Lien and OSMOS, this will not be only CIMS, but will include some sessions around earthquake monitoring and other geotechnical products.
Jenlogix have recently be named as International Platinum Distributor for San Lien solutions. Jenlogix are able to add "value" to sales and market in any location (Hardware, Software, Integration services).
Climate and weather conditions impact our daily lives, our societies, our economies and our infrastructures, and San Lien is proud to announce the acquisition of SIAP+Micros, an Italian leader in meterological, hydrological and environmental monitoring company by joining forces with OSMOS, a subsidiary of the French EREN Group. The full acquisitions of SIAP + Micros represent a key milestone in the development of OSMOS, and San Lien, as it will not only provide solutions and expertise in environmental monitoring, but also expand the established network at the international level.

Following last Friday (7th September) mornings 3.49am, 7.8 Mag Earthquake near Fiji, here are the wave forms from a couple of Jenlogix, 60 plus, seismometers in the Wellington region.
The seismic waves of the 608km deep earthquake took several minutes to arrive in the capital and, in this instance, was not big enough to create one of our automated Shake maps, which are usually sent to our clients within 60 seconds of our sensors picking up a quake.
One of the sensors/wave forms, pictured here is from BECA’s Molesworth St office, and the other, in Red Wolf High Level Security offices in Lower Hutt.
Recent Kaikoura Quake gave 19 seconds warning to a resident of Wellington.
Despite being only a single unit with no link to other warning devices, the unit reacted to the Pwave, giving what turned out to be 19 seconds warning of the shock wave. This enabled him to get his family up and into a safe area where they could duck, cover hold. Initially there was thought it was a fasle alarm as it took so long, but certainly not after it arrived.
Taiwan 5 Seconds
In Tawian, , the recent 6 Feb quake contained a killer pulse that destroyed buildings and while the national system provided warning this takes a few seconds, but the local onsite units provided vital 5 seconds warning, well ahead of the central system.

WANT TO KNOW IF CONSTRUCTION IS DAMAGING YOUR BUILDING - INSTANTLY?
MAKE SURE YOUR BUILDING IS NOT BEING AFFECTED BY LOCAL VIBRATION FROM CONSTRUCTION OR OTHER EVENTS
Construction, demolition or even heavy traffic can often cause unforeseen problems to neighbouring structures due to vibration. With the launch of the Palert+ Vibration monitoring system, building owners and users can now INSTANTLY get feedback on any issues with vibration.
Palert+ is a simple system to monitor the impact of this vibration on your building. With just a single Palert+ unit and an attached multi-coloured light, you can instantly see if the nearby work is causing any impact. Using international vibration standards DIN 4150-3 or ISO 2631, the system can ensure protection for your building. It can be used to make sure that the contractors are not exceeding vibration levels and meeting their compliance requirements.
Data is also sent directly to the cloud for engineers to see remotely the issues and direct construction accordingly. Being cloud based the engineers can assess the issue and inform the contractors of any remedial action required, even to the point of stopping construction. There are often heavy fines imposed on companies if vibration limits are exceeded.
So do not be caught out by damage to your building due to excessive vibration, when the simple Palert+ solution can instantly provide feedback.

As part of the Kaikoura rail and road rebuild, Jenlogix were commissioned by KiwiRail and NCTIR with the installation of the cost effective Palert Seismometer system to help provide warning of earthquakes in that region. The Palerts array circles Kaikoura. Jenlogix also provides data feeds from other clients’ units in the Christchurch and Wellington regions. Sites include Hanmer Springs (Visitor Centre and Spa), St Arnaud (DOC Visitor Centre and Rotoiti Lodge), Blenheim (Marlborough District Council), Kaikoura Council as well as KiwiRail's own sites in the region.
Costing from $2,850, each device ensures the system did not break the bank, while still providing valuable asset protection and potentially lifesaving data.
The customised "live" data enables KiwiRail operations centres to better manage risk, enabling them to contact trains as appropriate. KiwiRail and Jenlogix also make the data available to GeoNet.
Secure servers take KiwiRail and other clients data to create a shakemap within seconds of a quake. In addition, SMS text alerts are sent to KiwiRail and other interested parties.
