Abstract. Seismic exploration equipment has developed rapidly over the past few decades. One such piece of equipment is a centralized seismograph, which plays an important role in engineering, so improving its performance is of great scientific significance. In this research, the core part of general seismic data acquisition devices is packaged to develop a centralized seismic data acquisition system (Named as CUGB-CS48DAS) that has independent operating ability and high scalability, which can be used for seismic exploration in varies engineering usage. Furthermore, by extending and modifying the acquisition circuit and corresponding software, the function of electrical method data acquisition has also been achieved. Thus, the proposed CUGB-CS48DAS makes it possible for joint exploration of seismic and electrical data in a single acquisition station, which is implicitly of great convenience in engineering prospecting. The low-power-consumption computer of the system comprises a 24-bit Σ-△ modulation A/D converter and 48 sampling channels with an optional sampling rate of 50 Hz to 64 kHz, dynamic range ≥ 120 dB, synchronization accuracy better than 200 ns. With regard to the host computer, the architecture of the control software is smart, and it can integrate the multiple functions of data acquisition, preprocessing, and self-testing; clear interfaces reduce the complexity of development and migration. Field tests was implemented to prove that the system is stable and convenient to use, and the performance could meet the demand of high-precision joint exploration.

Short summary
The CUGB-CS48DAS data acquisition system was designed for seimic purpose at first. However, we tried to integrate the acquisition circuit for electrical purpose and implemented hardware improvmens as well as software updates. Moreover, technology including NB-IoT QC monitoring was also introduced. After a few field tests, the system was proved to be stable and easy to use, and has good application effect in engineering geology, mineral geology and energy geology.
