Devastating Earthquake to hit the Philippines
There will be a devastating Earthquake to hit the Philippines. According to a JICA Study, there will be more than 40,000 casualties, more than 200,000 injured victims, more than 100,000 buildings and structures will be damaged and billions of pesos will be lost.
People freeze during an earthquake. They cannot take quick and essential decisions. They panic. Taking control or command is hard, if not, impossible. Immediate intervention and action is vital to prevent secondary disasters. With real-time warning systems we can automatically stop critical equipment, guide people for safety and inform public about the situation.
There is an available technology to provide you with these solutions. Ask us to learn more about IMV JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph
JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph continuously monitors and records ground movement. It has a Tri-Axial Servo-Type Sensor, the most advanced, most precise and most reliable sensor available in the market. The machine gives out and records real time Ground Movement Acceleration values in units of Gal, real time Modified Mercalli Seismic Intensity and SI Value - Velocity Response Spectrum.
Measuring invisible vibration. Most vibrations can't be seen by the human eye. IMV develops our own sensors to continuously measure and monitor vibrations and movements to safeguard structures, equipment, assets, investments and most importantly - people.
The machine provides immediate alarm annunciation to ensure that the building occupants can be moved to safety, it is used to set off alarms at specifed ground movement levels.
The use of this equipment eliminates unnecessary evacuation during earthquake events. It also assures people that the structure is safe and there is no need to panic.
The 10-output alarm and shut off feature can be utilized to achieve an ultra efficient and highly advanced building management. Each channel can be adjusted to have its own preset acceleration level which can trigger automatic switch off for utilities such as elevators, LPG lines, electricity ines, water lines, automatic doors, airconditioning cooling towers, etc, to prevent secondary disasters as well as take care of of your important and sensitive equipment.
The seismic monitor can also be connected to the building's BMS and FDAS. The machine can also activate pre-recorded voice commands to guide and assure tenants during emergency situations utilizing the building's Public Announcement System.
JPN-1052 Seismic Accelerograph continuously monitors and records all ground movement in relation to the structural integrity of a building, thus giving you essential, specific and actual data which a designated professional can use in his/her analysis and evaluation of the structure after any earthquake or ground movement event.
This provides faster evaluations to allow quicker decisions by stakeholders and persons-in-charge after major earthquake events.
