WERT-60/120 2D Resitivity Imaging System

The resistivity/IP meter designed the receiver and the transmitter in one unit, which support 1D Resistivity and 1D Induced Polarization VES survey;it features multiple functions, high accuracy, fast speed, high reliability and excellent expandability. Measured data of it can be processed by other multi-electrode resistivity software, which makes the interpretation more convenient. The mainframe working with multi-electrode switcher as WERT-60/120 system, can support 2D resistivity imaging survey also with max 60/120pcs electrodes.


•  2D multi-electrode Resistivity tomography
•  VES - vertical electrical sounding ( resistivity and IP)
•  RP - resistivity and IP profiling
•  SP - self potential

The greatest limitation of the resistivity sounding method is that it does not take into account horizontal changes  in the subsurface resistivity. While the two-dimensional (2-D) electrical imaging method  with the resistivity changes in vertical direction as well as in the horizontal direction along the survey line.

In addtion, in the same time, typical 1-D resistivity sounding surveys usually involue about 10 to 20 readings, which 2-D imaging survey can finish thousand of points with different configuration. So the working efficiency improved heavrily.

•   Transmitting unit and receiving unit are of all-in-one design, portable and lightweight.
•   Super high-power, high anti-interference performance and precision: up to 6600w (1100v×6A) power, 48Vp-p voltage range ensures to get a good result in a area with high resistance.
•   Automatically achieving compensation of self-potential, drift and electrode polarization, up to ±10V.
•   Receiving unit support transient over-voltage protection, transmitting unit supports over-voltage protection, over-current protection and AB open-circuit protection.
•   For general resistivity and IP survey function, 9 types of electrode arrays are available. Electrode distance (namely “Program”) can be inputted or called. Geometric factor K can also be generated automatically or calculated manually.

    For multi-electrode 2D resistivity imaging, up to 18 electrode arrays are available. It could scanning measure according to fixed section (including AMNB, ABMN, AMBN, AMN, MNB, A-MN-B, Sp M, Sp MN, charge M, charge MN) or continuous rolling scanning measure according to variable section (including A-M, A-MN, AB-M, AB-MN, MN-B, A-MN rectangle).
•   Program: the program can memorize 100 groups of electrode distances, avoiding repetitive input. Or you just input a program Id and step to call the corresponding electrode distances.
•   Earth resistance inspection: ground condition can be inspected at any time.
•   Mass data storage: Up to 1GB capacity (extended) enable store 5,000,000 groups measuring data (including current, voltage, SP, Ro, Ms, metal factor, TH, R, J).
•   All parameter and data are under power-failure protection; and thus data will not be lost even thought the system shuts down accidentally.
•   USB port enables it to transfer data to computer.
