This paper describes the development of a low-cost multiparameter acquisition
system for volcanic monitoring that is applicable to gravimetry and geodesy, as well as to
the visual monitoring of volcanic activity. The acquisition system was developed using a
System on a Chip (SoC) Broadcom BCM2835 Linux operating system (based on
DebianTM) that allows for the construction of a complete monitoring system offering multiple
possibilities for storage, data-processing, configuration, and the real-time monitoring of
volcanic activity. This multiparametric acquisition system was developed with a software
environment, as well as with different hardware modules designed for each parameter to be
monitored. The device presented here has been used and validated under different scenarios
for monitoring ocean tides, ground deformation, and gravity, as well as for monitoring with
images the island of Tenerife and ground deformation on the island of El Hierro.
