What is QuakeTrip?
Saving Lives and Protecting Property
QuakeTrip is an earthquake detection device that automatically shuts down systems and utilities when a strong earthquake is detected. The device contains four 3-axis accelerometers that measure ground motion in three directions. Internal software then compares the ground motion to pre-defined thresholds and if these thresholds are exceeded it proceeds to shut down systems such as elevators, gas, water, electricity, etc.
Severe ground motion that can cause structural damage is only a small fraction of the damage that is associated with earthquake activity. Damage from fire and flooding is far more costly and dangerous.
QuakeTrip is easy to install and will act as an important first line of defense in your home, school, office, factory or workplace. Unlike Earthquake Early Warning (EEW), QuakeTrip is not just a warning device, QuakeTrip will take action while you are getting to a safe place.
- provides an audible warning
- shuts off main breaker
- shuts off gas
- shuts off water
Commercial/ apartments/ condos
- Opens fire hall doors
- Initiates safe elevator shutdown
- Provides control to actuators and solenoids
- Communicates with command centers
- Shuts off electricity, gas & water
Will also prevent automatic restoration of gas, water and electrical service to the building until it has been physically checked.
Plug and Play – Works Anywhere
Bring elevator to nearest floor, open doors and park weights
Schools/ Churches/ Community Centers/ Arenas/ Swimming Pools
Activate audible alarms, shut off utilities
Shut off gas, water, electricity
One QuakeTrip unit located in electrical room can shut down the power to all units
Send signal to initiate complex shutdown sequences
Oil and Gas/Frac Monitoring
Alert operators when minimum thresholds have been exceeded
Bridges/ Tunnels/ Trains/ Highways
Activate public warning systems such as closing tunnels and bridges
Water Treatment Facilities/ Water Supply
Control VFD valve closure to prevent loss of valuable water for drinking and fire fighting
Read what our customers have to say about QuakeTrip
B.L. Harbert International, LLC purchased and installed the QuakeTrip device as part of a facility in an undisclosed location in the course of executing terms of a contract for the US Government.
The City of Surrey
The City of Surrey installed the QuakeTrip shut-down device in our municipal Museum building. The site was chosen because of the road and rail traffic in the corridor that underlay this particular area.
Village of Belcarra
Belcarra has installed a QuakeTrip Seismic Detection Device at the Tatlow Reservoir in January 2016. QuakeTrip was selected to protect the water supply to the village fire pumps.
