The TitanEA is a strong motion Ethernet accelerograph with power-over ethernet and Network Timing capabilities specifically designed for networked deployments on or in large civil structures such as nuclear reactors, multi-story buildings, bridges, and hydro-electric dams
The TitanEA features the same Titan triaxial sensor and digitizer/recorder technology as the TitanSMA. The TitanEA comes in two models: the TitanEA Master has a GNSS receiver to get timing from satellites and acts as a network time master to supply timing over Ethernet to TitanEA Slaves.
Single Cable Ethernet Connectivity
Deploy the TitanEA in any structure with only a single Ethernet CAT5 cable for all functions: power, precision timing, data, and management. Ethernet connectivity eliminates the need to reroute expensive analogue cables throughout a structure and provides maximum flexibility in sensor placement.
Precision Time Protocol or Network Time Protocol
Precision Time Protocol (PTP) provides timing accuracy of <100µs:
- No need for GNSS antennas at every sensor
- Place the accelerograph anywhere in the structure
- Time inputs provided through the single Ethernet connection
Network Time Protocol (NTP) permits the time source to be not on the same local LAN subnet.
The TitanEA facilitates central control room monitoring of a structure, allowing operators to monitor the PGA, PGV, PGD, and SA of all sensors in the network, in real-time, on a convenient display.
Each sensor in the network can be accessed independently using any mobile device with Internet access. Structural engineers can quickly view instrument status and events anywhere, anytime.
