Continuous vibration monitoring enables you to confidently analyze your impact and avoid issues with the local community. Save time by remotely accessing real-time and historical vibration levels with our portable vibration monitoring terminal and web-based software system. With the add-on blast overpressure microphone you can measure the impact of mining blasts. The VMT is part of the Environmental Monitoring Unit EMU family.
Mitigate structural damage
Log ground vibration during construction and mining activities to avoid harming buildings and sensitive areas.

- Accurately report on your regulatory compliance
- Show the community you care about their comfort and are meeting environmental standards
Assess human response from road and railway traffic
Reliably determine the impact of vibration levels on people near road and railway activity.
- Identify how the public is affected by busy traffic corridors
- Conduct background surveys prior to new construction
- Effectively analyze and evaluate vibration mitigation techniques
Ensure sensitive equipment operates correctly
Monitor background vibration to ensure sensitive equipment and procedures are not disturbed.
- Safeguard patient comfort at medical facilities
- Ensure correct operation of semiconductor machinery
- Reduce the risk of artifact damage at museums
Enable compliance of blasting activities
Outdoor microphone Blast Overpressure Microphone Type AU–8381, when connected to EMS Brüel & Kjær’s Vibration Monitoring Terminal Type 3680 (VMT), enables measurements of blast overpressure simultaneously with vibration to enable compliance monitoring of blasting activities around mines.
For mining staff and noise and vibration consultants measuring the impact of blasts around mines, the blast overpressure microphone, when used with the VMT, provides a durable and robust solution that, unlike many other industry-standard solutions, continues to meet the ISEE requirements even after being used for a long time in the field. In addition, the VMT with this microphone is a complete, robust and reliable blast monitoring solution that is easy to operate.
The combination fully meets the requirements of the International Society of Explosive Engineers, ISEE 2017 for ground vibration and blast overpressure monitoring.
