Early warning against earthquake
The basis of early earthquake warning systems is formed by reliable seismic sensors that can detect seismic waves and then, after the immediate evaluation, automatically activate a warning signal. It will provide people in the endangered area with valuable seconds for their rescue.
Seismic sensors are connected directly to an electronic siren, which is automatically activated in dangerous earth tremors. The system is automated and independent, so it works even in case of a power failure, which is a common side effect of earthquakes. Large systems are equipped with Vektra® software applications (SCADA, Warning, and Notification). When sensors detect dangerous earthquake activity (continuously monitored by Vektra® SCADA), all sirens are automatically activated (Vektra® Warning). Simultaneously, all first responders are notified by voice or text of the impending danger (Vektra® Notification).
