DELPH Seismic Acquisition

A HIGH-QUALITY, EASY-TO-USE DATA LOGGER


Recording optimum-quality data can be a challenge, especially when simultaneously supervising several pieces of equipment. DELPH Seismic Acquisition features an easy-to-read display and indicates the status, nature and severity of problems when they occur. It provides also greater stability to the core logging functions of the application. Software setup for acquisition is made easy and mistakes that may corrupt the raw data are minimized.

FEATURES


DELPH Seismic Acquisition software accurately time-stamps all incoming data and provides intuitive quality control functionalities for data collection and logging operations.
 
DELPH Seismic Acquisition is the tool of choice for:

  • Controlling acquisition settings using a dedicated user interface for every sensor,
  • Monitoring signal quality using a spectrum and an oscilloscope display with zoom capability,
  • Monitoring the seismic profile in a scrolling display with selectable look-up table, contrast level and scale. Automatic contrast enhancement is also available,
  • Monitoring navigation and ancillary sensors,
  • Monitoring the acquisition, logging and navigation processes


 
Driver-based configuration
DELPH Seismic Acquisition has dedicated drivers and settings for each equipment including:
  • Single to multi-channel Analog Seismic Systems
    • 24-bit DELPH Analog Acquisition Unit
    • 24-bit Analog to Digital PCI boards
  • iXBlue ECHOES® Sub-Bottom Profilers
  • Edgetech® sub-bottom profilers and combined systems
  • Benthos® Chirp III sub-bottom profiler
  • Odom® MKIII dual-frequency echo sounder
  • Other interfaces on request
 
Quality Control User-Interface
DELPH Seismic Acquisition has a resolutely simplified user interface, still providing key survey information and quality control tools:
  • Monitoring of the signal quality using a spectrum and an oscilloscope display with zoom capability,
  • Monitoring the seismic profile in a scrolling display with selectable look-up table, contrast level and scale. Automatic contrast enhancement is also available,
  • Monitoring of the navigation and ancillary sensors,
  • Monitoring the acquisition, logging and navigation processes,
  • Visual alarms based on real-time information (signal saturation, depth, altitude, storage space, navigation, etc.)
  • Depth compensation of the seismic profile from a pressure sensor
 
Data logging to industry standard formats
DELPH Seismic Acquisition natively records the raw data to major industry standard formats:
  • XTF
  • SEGY
  • Automatic file switching functions (size, duration, KP)
  • Automatic file naming
 
Ancillary equipment interfacing
DELPH Seismic Acquisition easily interfaces ancillary sensors and devices:
  • Native support for main NMEA and industry standard protocols (RS-232 and Ethernet)
  • Intuitive User-Defined protocol editor for extending DELPH support to other sensors
  • Profile output to thermal plotters
