Unless specified otherwise, the MTU-RT is shipped with a configuration file that will collect simultaneous BMT data from 10,000 Hz to 20,000 sec+ on 5 channels (using MTC-150). Default sampling rates programmed are 24,000 Hz (burst), 2,400 Hz (burst) and 150 Hz (continuous).
These parameters are easy to change, from your connected device or directly from the instrument.
Once installed, turn on the MTU-RT. Providing that it is within an area covered with 3G, It will start acquiring data automatically.
Upon boot-up, The MTU-RT will establish a connection to the network specified by the SIM card of the 3G modem . Data will be automatically backed-up and available on the remote server.
Locate a suitable environment with 3G coverage using signals monitoring tools such as www.opensignal.com
Once on site, use any signal monitoring phone application to locate a spot where signal strength is adequate.
Setup magnetic sensors: orient, level , lay the cable in a shallow trench for long term recordings
Orient and bury your electric field measuring dipole, the same way you would with a regular MT sounding.
Connect sensors to MTU-RT; connect solar panels to charge controller; connect charge controller to MTU-RT. Connect batteries and modem.
Proceed to a quick QC by measuring dipole resistance, AC and DC levels; then, power on the MTU-RT; the rest is automatic.
