Gravity Meters LaCoste and Romberg Aliod G Gravity Meter


The Lacoste and Romberg Model G gravity meter has been a mainstay of exploration for many years. Recent improvements greatly increased the production rate and ease of use. The Aliod modification changes the mode of acquisition to a digital read-out and/or logging of the gravity measurement. Because there is no longer necessity to read through the eye-piece, the accuracy and repeatability of the instrument are much less subjective.

A second modification changes the battery pack to a lithium-ion rechargeable that is located on the meter itself. This eliminates the umbilical cord which previously connected the meter to the external battery.

Trimble Nomad Data Logger

EXI offers data logging for the Aliod system through the use of a Trimble Nomad running Windows Mobile OS. Perhaps one of the nicest, most convenient mods is the addition of Bluetooth connectivity between the data logger and the system board in the gravity meter, thereby eliminating that pesky cable connection. The Nomad provides positioning data via integrated gps receiver.
