BTD Series Thunderstorm Detectors and Warning of Lightning Risk
Thunderstorm Detector BTD-300
Thunderstorm Detector BTD-350
Thunderstorm Detector BTD-200
Standalone lightning detectors giving range and direction data to FAA requirements Unique quasi-electrostatic operating principle virtually eliminates false alarms Warns of overhead thunderstorm risk before the first lightning discharge.
The Thunderstorm Detectors are a standalone sensors that reliably detects the presence of all forms of lightning to a range of 83 km (BTD-300, BTD-350 marine version) and 35 km (BTD-200). The unique quasi electrostatic operating principle gives the detector a very low false alarm rate and the ability to warn of the risk of overhead lightning. Virtually maintenance free, the BTD Series can operate with the supplied PC compatible display software, seamlessly integrate with sophisticated weather monitoring systems or directly activate local warning devices.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Warns of overhead lightning risk even before the first lightning discharge
Highly immune to radio interference which is the major cause of false alarms in traditional standalone detectors
BTD-300 / 350: 83 km detection range exceeds US FAA
BTD-200: 35 km detection range
Detects cloud-to-ground and as well as weaker but more common cloud-to-cloud lightning
Detects charged precipitation
Meets FAA performance requirements for airport use
