The impulse generator IPG5000 (formerly named IPG1005) is the high voltage supply to the seismic borehole sources SBS42 and BIS-SH. The energy is stored in a large capacitor bank which discharges through a mechanical switch. The IPG5000 is controlled by a remote control unit (RCU). The RCU allows the user to start the seismic survey by a single or continuous shot release. The repetition rate is selectable under continuous operation. The RCU is connected to the seismograph to send an accurate time break.
