Earthquakes cannot be foreseen. In the event of an identified existing seismic hazard there is the risk of direct and indirect damage to nuclear or non-nuclear industrial plants and to other building structures located in the hazard zones. Equally vulnerable are infrastructures such as e.g. bridges or dams.
With the SYSCOM equipment technology, Wölfel offers a seismic instrumentation for the continuous measurement of vibrations and for the control of alarm limits and their exceedance in case of earthquake. This will enable operators to initiate the necessary measures or to arrange for the automatic switch-off or saving of critical processes or components. The automatic comparison of the vibrations measured with the design values specified allows for the control of the building structure or component.
