Short summary
This paper focuses on major issues related to data reliability and MOBNET network performance in the AlpArray seismic experiments. We present both new hardware and software tools that help to assure the high-quality standard of broadband seismic data. Special attention is paid to issues like a detection of sensor misorientation, timing problems, exchange of record components and/or their polarity reversal, sensor mass centring, or anomalous channel amplitudes due to imperfect gain.
