The carrying case shall be impact and humidity resistant and large enough to store the heartbeat kit and all of its components, — complete documentation and manual for use, media and print, in English as a minimum, — 4 vibration (seismic) sensors and 1 additional spare sensor: • minimum IP 54 protection, • waterproof electric connectors (minimum IP 5 for water protection), • sensor — computer connecting cables that are suitable for the outside work.
