A system to determine the probability of the occurrence of a lightning strike by using an atmospheric monitoring and lightning warning device to measure the strength of the electrostatic field in the atmosphere.
Our LIGHTNING ALERT system determines the probability of the occurrence of a lightning strike by using an atmospheric monitoring and lightning warning device to measure the strength of the electrostatic field in the atmosphere.
The LIGHTNING ALERT system includes an electric field meter sensor, which is available in two versions depending on the desired measurement range, connected to one of our METEODATA data logging units.
This unit records and transmits the data to a Central Monitoring Server via GPRS/3G/4G, radio, Ethernet connection, etc. It also sends text messages (SMS) to cell phones, or e-mails to specified addresses, warning of the risk level if the measured value exceeds a certain programmable threshold.
Some of the sectors that commonly use LIGHTNING ALERT systems include:
Electricity production and distribution (Power plants, transmission networks, substations, etc.).
Fuel installations and tanks (oil, gas, etc.)
Wind and solar farms.
Seaports (loading and unloading of fuel, operation of large cranes).
Military complexes and facilities.
Handling of explosives and hazardous materials.
Aircraft fuel supply.
Airports (safety in aircraft ground operations, landing and take-off, catering, and baggage handling, etc.).
Golf courses, amusement parks and swimming pools.
Construction and civil works.
Outdoor public and sporting events.
The LIGHTNING ALERT system, apart from measuring the risk of lightning potentially occurring in the vicinity of the measurement point, can also operate as a lightning strike detector in a certain environment with a radius of 35-80 km, providing also information on the distance and orientation of the event, which can also be used as a warning system about the proximity of the electrical storm
