GD-20 is a brand-new multi-channel electrical method system, independent 5/12 channel design, It can measure up to 10 points at the same time, greatly improving the efficiency on site. GD20 can be used for self-electricity, apparent resistivity and IP testing. Compared with single-channel equipment, the multi-channel average test efficiency is increased by 2-3 times, greatly shortening the field construction period. The GD-20 system is portable and has its own memory to store data. Multi-channel conversion box Supporting VES, ERT, and N-∞ settings. VES can test 12 sets of sounding points in the meantime , ERT test can meets 10-channel data acquisition, N-∞ gear meets the application of N-connected infinity device, and independent 10-channel design maximizes test efficiency.

1D VES for Resistivity or IP
In 1D VES survey, transmission up to full power 7200W (1200V*6A) can be emitted to allow excited pulse signals to reach deeper strata. For small signals, up to 255 stacking amounts are allowed to enhance measurement accuracy. 1D survey layout can be placed and measured at 12 points concurrently, further reducing the amount of electrode scanning.

2D ERT or IP Profiling
GD-20 ERT system is capable of conducting 2D cross-section profiling of ERT and IP in field. Through the array script management in Geomative Studio, clients can predefine survey parameters on PC prior to field surveys. Up to 3200W (800V*4A) transmission power can be deployed in field.
3D ERT or IP Profiling
Using GD-20 ERT measurement system, the sectional centralized cabling layout can be deployed robustly in a snakelike layout pattern to perform 3D ERT and IP survey. Up to 3200W (800V*4A) can be transmitted under this mode. If ERT cabling is insufficient, limited cabling can be deployed in a dual-direction shifting combination or multiple paralleled 2D survey line data fusion method to cover a larger 3D region.
High power IP mid gradient scanning
Geomative is the first in the industry to adopt ERT modules in the high-powered IP mid-gradient cross-sectional profiling. Similar to the ERT method, clients can deploy a pair of AB electrodes and multiple sets of non-polarizable electrodes. AB transmitting electrode is connected to the AB terminal port on the GD-20, while the non-polarizable electrodes are connected to the ERT cables takeouts. During IP survey, the host instrument emits electrical signal simultaneously and sequentially select MN electrodes in automated mode. Under sufficient amount of cabling and electrodes, the whole lateral cross-sectional profiling can be accomplished in one run, with a significant enhancement in survey efficiency. If signal emission is performed using external transmitter, clients can simply connect the AB terminal port of GD-20 host to the emission circuit in series. GD-10 will automatically monitor and detect the transmitted electrical signals, triggering and synchronizing the MN acquisition channels simultaneously.
