MARMOT is a Seismic Monitoring and Trip System perfectly responding to the increasing safety requirements in sensitive industries such as Nuclear Power Plants (NPP), Nuclear Storage Facilities, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Refineries and many more. The system measures and systematically analyses tremors occurring at different points in a facility and quickly recognizes dangerous vibration patterns. With its distributed intelligence it guarantees reliable alarms for automatic shutdown (trip) information impacted by earthquakes on the structures.

SYSCOM MARMOT system complies with all relevant standards (e.g. IEC 61508, IEC 60780, and IEC 60880) applicable in these industries, fully tested and certified by the TÜV-Rheinland organization.

The MARMOT system is based on a highly reliable distributed and redundant recording system coupled with solid-state sensors. It is also based on SYSCOM’s experience of more than 25 years in development and production of strong motion instrumentation, primarily for the nuclear industry. The system was named like the marmot, an animal known for having one of most effective warning systems in the world.
