Mounting V1X

A quick guide on how to mount your V1X

The V1X Geophone should be mounted according to:

  • V10 should be mounted either on the wall or on the floor, and have the label parallel with the wall (readable from the side)

  • V11 should be mounted either on the wall or on the floor, and have the label parallel with the floor (readable from above)

  • V12 should be mounted either on the wall or on the floor, and have the label parallel with the floor (readable from above)

  • V12R should be mounted in the ceiling and have the label parallel with the ceiling (readable from below)

Note! For correct measuring results, the mounting angle of the V1X Geophone must not exceed 5º relative to the reference plane.


If you measure triaxial then it should be less than one degree to avoid false measurement.


Note! To facilitate proper communication in electrically harsh environments, the metallic enclosure must not be in contact with any kind of conductive surfaces (the sensor feet are isolated). All cable junctions touching any metal or the ground should be protected by vulcanized tape.

Electrically isolated mounting

The sensor housing must be isolated from the mounting surface (ground). It is important that the is not in contact with the surface.

  1. When you are mounting the V1X it is important that there is free space between the ground and the V1X housing.

Only the feet may be in contact with the surface because the feet has isolating washers between them and the housing.

  1. Here is the V1X housing in contact with ground, this is the wrong way of mounting.
