Micromate Features

The Micromate® is the workhorse of the Instantel fleet. Designed for construction monitoring applications but flexible enough to monitor pile driving, tunnel boring, transportation, mining or infrastructure and land development. The Micromate® is the industries best in class monitoring system for hand-held and remote monitoring applications.

Seamlessly record vibration and sound/noise or air overpressure with one monitoring unit. The Micromate has four available channels: three for a triaxial geophone and one for an air over pressure or sound level microphone. Designed to meet industry standards like the International Society of Explosive Engineers (ISEE, 2011), DIN 45669-1, Swedish blasting (SS4604866) and Swedish pile driving (SS025211), you can be sure to get accurate readings every time!

Connect powered USB hubs, printers, memory sticks, modems or a GPS. The Micromate will automatically detect connected devices in much the same manner that you are accustomed to with your computer. Choose the optional auxiliary port and get additional support for remote alarms, external wire triggers and more! With the Micromate, the possibilities are endless.

The Micromate is built to last. The main unit comes with a fully sealed top panel. The non-corrosive fully sealed industrial grade connectors are labeled and color coded for easy identification and installation. Custom molded housings for the base unit are made of superior impact polycarbonate. An optional protective “boot” provides the highest level of durability and ruggedness available in Instantel’s product line. The operating temperature range is -40°C to 55°C (-40°F to 131°F). Reliability is at the core of everything Instantel makes!
