VIP 4000
The VIP 4000 is a powerful transmitter that can be used together with a receiver for resistivity and induced polarization measurement. This transmitter is one of the very few that is current regulated. The current regulation allows for obtaining a voltage plateau during the injection and therefore theoretically allows for a more accurate measurement of the chargeability.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration

VIP 5000
The VIP 5000 is a powerful transmitter that can be used together with a receiver for resistivity and induced polarization measurement. This transmitter is one of the very few that is current regulated. The current regulation allows for obtaining a voltage plateau during the injection and therefore theoretically allows for a more accurate measurement of the chargeability.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• deep mining exploration

VIP 10000
The VIP 10000 is the most powerful of our transmitter range that can be used together with a receiver for resistivity and induced polarization measurement. This transmitter is one of the very few that is current regulated. The current regulation allows for obtaining a voltage plateau during the injection and therefore theoretically allows for a more accurate measurement of the chargeability.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• deep mining exploration

TIPIX 2200
The TIPIX 2200 is a transmitter that can be used together with a receiver for resistivity and induced polarization measurement. This entry-level instrument has been designed for a good productivity together with a strong protection again misuse. It has been proven to be robust: reliable in very cold weather or in wet environment.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration

TIPIX 3000
The TIPIX 3000 is a transmitter that can be used together with a receiver for resistivity and induced polarization measurement. This entry-level instrument has been designed for a good productivity together with a strong protection again misuse. It has been proven to be robust: reliable in very cold weather or in wet environment.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• deep mining exploration

I Fullwaver
The I Fullwaver systems were specifically developed for precise full waveform time domain induced polarisation, resistivity and self-potential measurements. Each system is fully independent; incorporating its own power source, GPS module and digital memory for up to 3 months continuous recording. This system is adapted to measure and record injected current from induced polarization and resistivity transmitters.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• deep mining exploration

V Fullwaver
The V Fullwaver systems were specifically developed for precise full waveform time domain Induced Polarisation, Resistivity and SP measurements. Each system is fully independent; incorporating its own power source, GPS module and digital memory for up to 3 months continuous recording.
The V Fullwaver is a dual channel Induced Polarisation, Resistivity and SP receiver. Continually recording at 10ms sample rate provides a full waveform record of the voltage created by an independent transmitter. It can be synchronized on the GPS PPS signal, allowing an easy process of the signal. This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• deep mining exploration

Elrec Lite
The Elrec Lite G is a 2-channel hand held induced polarisation and Resistivity receiver designed to be used with the TIPIX or VIP transmitter. The Elrec automatically synchronizes (and re-synchronizes at each new pulse) with the transmission signal, through the waveform recognition process, ensuring high measurement repeatability. This low-weight device is particularly suited for sounding and profiling measurements where the operator must move from several hundreds of meters, carrying the receiver.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration

Elrec 6
The Elrec 6 is a 6-channel Induced Polarisation (IP) and Resistivity receiver designed to improve productivity when recording deep profiles and soundings. The Elrec Pro is designed for use with the TIPIX and VIP high power transmitters’ series. The Elrec automatically synchronizes (and re-synchronizes at each new pulse) with the transmission signal, through the waveform recognition process, ensuring high measurement repeatability.
For large 2D and 3D surveys, the Elrec can be used in conjunction with the Switch Pro box(es), increasing the spread to 96 electrodes. When operating the system in this manner, complex measurement sequences can be designed and uploaded to the system via Electre II or Electre Pro software.
This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration

Elrec Pro
The Elrec Pro is designed for use with the TIPIX and VIP high-power transmitters’ series. The Elrec automatically synchronizes (and re-synchronizes at each new pulse) with the transmission signal, through the waveform recognition process, ensuring high measurement repeatability.
For large 2D and 3D surveys, the Elrec can be used in conjunction with the Switch Pro box(es) to increase the spread to 96 electrodes. When operating the system in this manner, complex measurement sequences can be designed and uploaded to the system via Electre II or Electre Pro software.

This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration
• Environmental monitoring

Elrec Pro Switch
The Elrec Pro Switch is designed for use with the TIPIX and VIP high-power transmitters’ series. The Elrec automatically synchronizes (and re-synchronizes at each new pulse) with the transmission signal, through the waveform recognition process, ensuring high measurement repeatability.
For large 2D and 3D surveys, the Elrec Pro Switch allows to switch the ten channels of the receiver among 48, 72, 96, 120... electrodes. In practice, this allows to read very large combinations of electrode without having to connect/disconnect several time wires and electrodes. Acquisition time can be strongly reduced compared to receivers featuring a high  number of channels but no automatic switching capability.
Complex measurement sequences can be designed and uploaded to the system via Electre II or Electre Pro software.

This device suits to:
• deep groundwater exploration (weathered bedrock, fault and dyke detection, groundwater table aquifers exploration)
• mining exploration
• Environmental monitoring
