Deconvolving Instrument Responses

Working with Responses to Get Units of Ground Motion

Necessary information:

Sensor: sensitivity and passband (velocity transducer) or scaling (accelerometer)

For information on sensor sensitivity and passband, see the Sensor Comparison Chart along with the Sensor Response Plot.

Datalogger: Analog-to-Digital (A/D) conversion factor (aka bit weight) and Gain 

Quanterra model Q330: 419,430 counts/volt, or 2.384 uV/count at a Gain of 1 RefTek model RT130: 629,327 counts/volt, or 1.58997 uV/count at a Gain of 1


Example: Counts to Ground Velocity Conversion within the Passband
