Lightning Hazard Early Warning Sensor


Although the statistical probabilities of a direct lightning strike are small, the consequences can be catastrophic. The Lighting Alert System is an advanced lighting warning and atmospheric monitoring device specifically designed to determine when conditions exist where lighting is likely to occur in the local area. A modern atmospheric electric field monitor and advanced data logger / transmitter are combined within the METEODATA / ZEBRA-2 Lightning Alert System to eliminate the need for risk taking.

Lightning Hazard Early Warning Sensor

Organizations dealing with explosives, chemical processes, and sensitive operations, including military devices and aviation facilities, use a zero tolerance approach in response to the hazard and consequences posed by the presence of lightning. This policy is made possible through the ability to monitor the atmosphere for a change in local electric fields, an approach that has been tested and refined over and over again in the last 15 years through the use of systems and sensors designed and produced. under the most demanding technical requirements.

The simple fact is that without high electric fields and a separation of the lightning charge will not and cannot occur. The METEODATA / ZEBRA-2 monitors your location - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - the reported data is updated virtually every second. Threat monitoring against predefined thresholds allows you to implement timely decisions and take actions such as triggering alarms and notification devices, activating auxiliary power sources or isolating sensitive equipment and data, among others.

Field mills are not lightning detectors: they are designed to determine when conditions exist where lightning is likely to occur in the local area. While the use of a "detector" is an ideal method of confirming that lightning has already occurred, it is often too late to be of real operational value, especially if the first event occurs near or at the location that is most vulnerable. Designed for applications where budgets are limited, the METEODATA / ZEBRA-2 is reliable, compact and easy to install.
