When we asked what you wanted in a vibration
monitor, you said “Everything.” So, we designed
the Instantel® Minimate Plus™ vibration and
overpressure monitor. Ever since, it has become
a favourite of contractors, consultants, engineers
and blasters because it offers unrivalled features
and versatility in a rugged and easy-to-use package.
When used as a compliance monitor, the Minimate Plus system is a perfect fit in any monitoring application. It is designed for use with the
Instantel standard triaxial geophone and linear or
A-weight microphone for maximum flexibility.
You also have the option to add four more channels, so you can have two complete, standard
seismographs with a single monitor.
For the most demanding monitoring applications use Instantel Blastware® Advanced Module software to unlock the full capabilities of the
Minimate Plus monitor. You can configure the
velocity and microphone channels as independent
data acquisition channels for a variety of sensors
including hydrophones, accelerometers and even
crack extensometers.
Key Features
The Instantel Auto Call Home™ feature allows
the monitor to automatically transfer event files
from the instrument to the office via Cellular,
Satellite, RF, GSM, or standard land line modems.
From there, the Blastware Mail feature of the
Blastware software distributes the information to
multiple e-mails, internet or any text messaging
Instantel Histogram Combo™ mode allows capture of
full waveform records while recording in histogram mode.
Auto Call Home feature automates remote monitoring
Sample rates from 1024 to 16K samples per second, per
channel with up to 65K available on a single channel.
Available 8-channel option allows for two standard
geophones and two microphones to be operated from one
Minimate Plus monitor.
Non-volatile memory with standard 300-event storage
capacity (optional 1500-event capacity).
Records waveform events up to 100 seconds long with standard
setup, or up to 500 seconds with advanced setup.
Continuous monitoring means zero dead time, even while the
unit is processing.
Αny channel can be matched to a wide variety of sensors
- geophones, accelerometers, or hydrophones.
Easy to use
Even with all of these features, the Minimate
Plus system is still easy for anyone to use. A
high-contrast LCD, eight-key tactile keypad,
coupled with simple menu-driven operations,
provides complete control and confidence.
