About Terra Techcom
We, at M/s Terra Techcom Pvt. Ltd., understand that in an emergency, every second counts. Considering the need of the people of South Asian countries, Mr Bijender Goel having a background of Mechanical Engineer as well as a security professional, decided to collaborate with a Germany based company- Secty Electronics GmbH. This joint venture brings to the South Asian countries, the first ever earthquake Onsite Early Warning and security System (EWS).This onsite EWS is developed to detect the primary (P) waves of an earthquake and to warn people by triggering indoor/outdoor alarm.This onsite EWS is the only available device in the world equipped with all in one security features and connect to a building management system(BMS).
In last two decades, about a million people have died in earthquakes and the damage to the asset is untold. Like we see thunder and lightning first and then hear the boom. Similarly, Earthquake emits two sets of waves, first primary waves (P ) are harmless and followed by damaging waves secondary waves (S) and surface waves (R). By detecting these primary (P) waves, we can warn the people that “an earthquake is on the way”.Earthquakes have become an issue before this world and there is a severe need any such earthquake warning system that can warn the people at least few seconds before the damaging secondary (S) waves strike.
CSIR-Structural Engineering Research Centre, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India has successfully tested its eight threshold values (0.015g- 0.04g). Only system in world which can connect to any building management system. Only device of the world having experience on real earthquakes and has record timings of giving alarm 30 seconds before when the damaging secondary waves hit Chile 2010) and Indonesia (2012). This device has not given any false alarm since its first installation in last 10 years.
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) too understands this system as one of the best available device in the world for onsite earthquake warnings. Engineers India Limited (EIL) has also given very positive remarks on our system. Launching and installation of this device in India was a centre of attraction for International / national media.
