EMS' new Blast Overpressure Microphone provides complete blast monitoring solution

Melbourne, Australia -- EMS Brüel & Kjær is pleased to announce the addition of a Blast Overpressure Microphone to its Vibration Monitoring Terminal (VMT). Together, the two provide a complete blast monitoring solution. 

For construction and mining companies, measuring blast overpressure is a must. Too much of it can cause damage to nearby buildings and other structures, as well as causing complaints from the neigbhours. For these reasons among others, blasting can only take place under very specific circumstances, and it must be monitored closely. Together, the VMT and Blast Overpressure Microphone provide for that monitoring in a solution that is both cost-effective and dependable. They also provide for compliance monitoring, so blasting companies can easily prove their compliance with all regulations. As EMS' solution complies with RoHS 2 regulations, it can be used anywhere in the world. 

The Blast Overpressure Microphone carries a number of advantages over the competition:

  • A stainless steel design that is durable in harsh environments, including temperatures at both extremes
  • Hydroponic and UV-protected windscreens
  • Superior humidity protection
  • Wider dynamic range, so no blast overpressure data is missed
  • Compatible with Sentinel, the EMS online monitoring solution that enables storing historical data.

The microphone is compatible with the latest generation of VMTs; older ones can be upgraded at any authorised service centre for compatibility. A standard three meter microphone cable is included, while the microphone is suitable for use with longer cables. Also included are a windscreen and anti-bird spikes.
