seismometers, calibration, seismometry, metrology, measurement of real-time systems


Periodic temporary change properties seismometrological own equipment or foreign develop-ment requires periodic their engineering studies and measurement control. In the period of the USSM is made on test seismometer calibration devices located in Russia. Now the number of seis-mic sensors of various industries in the country is increasing. Briefly describes the instrumentation developed for vibration testing of different seismometer output and results of its use for testing methods of metrological control procedures
