Storm detection systems provide great advantages to protect all kind of installations. Here a few examples:

storm detector airports

Airports

Maneuvers, refueling, the loading and unloading of goods or the transfer of baggage and passengers are all high-risk operations during electrical storms. The monitoring the evolution of the atmospheric electric field can be easily integrated into automated environmental observation systems. It is very useful in decision-making related with prevention and safety in airports, a key location for transport of people and for the general economy.

  • Workers and people in open areas.
  • Sensitive equipment.
  • Large areas that are difficult to protect against lightning

storm detector lighting masive events concerts

Mass events

Lightning strikes during the celebration of events with great people influx are a high isk situation. A system that allows for the configuration of an automatic alarm which warns the participants and organizers of the event of the lightning strike risk is an essential security measure. The signal output of this system is ideal to generate both light and sound alarms.

  • Workers and audiences abroad.
  • Sensitive equipment.
  • Large areas that are difficult to protect against lightning

storm detector golf

Golf courses

Outdoor activities, such as golf, expose people and equipment to the risk of lightning strike. PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System allows for the configuration of an alarm system and complete signaling that warns about possible lightning discharges before they occur. A correct signaling well in advance enables workers and customers to follow the security protocols established by the company, and thus avoid risk situations.

  • Workers and audiences in open areas.
  • Wildfire risk
  • Large areas that are difficult to protect against lightning

lightning detector solar farms

Solar farms

In solar farms, wind farms and transformer substations it is essential to be able to anticipate possible lightning strikes in order to activate the necessary security protocols. PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System offers the possibility to automatically disconnecting sensitive equipment in order to protect it, thanks to its early alarm system.

  • Workers in open areas
  • Sensitive and expensive equipment
  • Large areas which are difficult to protect against lightning.

storm detector lightning mining

Mining

People and machines in motion, which are common in mining sites, have a high risk of being struck by lightning. PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System allows for the configuration of a signalling and control system using audio and visual alarms that indicate the start and the end of the moments in which risk of lightning discharges is high. Among other applications, the sensor enables to control the automatic activation of backup energy generating systems or to stop the activity of significantly valuable systems.

  • Workers in open areas
  • Sensitive and expensive equipment
  • Large areas which are difficult to protect against lightning.

lightning detector nature parks

Nature Parks

A large percentage of fires are caused by the impact of lightning on trees. Occasionally, lightning remains dormant inside the tree causing a fire hours after the tree was struck by lightning. PREVISTORM alert system reports lightning strikes in a particular area, thus providing information, location and storm tracking.

  • Workers and audiences in open areas.
  • Wildfire risk
  • Large areas which are difficult to protect against lightning.

storm detector Amusement parks

Amusement parks

Lightning activity can endanger people and facilities in amusement parks. The ability to detect the development of a storm from its initial formation stages, provides the security team of the park with enough time to activate preventive measures or evacuate the place, if necessary.

  • Workers and audiences in open areas
  • High risk of accidents
  • Equipment and materials exposed to risk.

wind farms lighting detection

Wind farms

When it comes to structures such as wind or solar farms and transformation substations it is essential to be able to anticipate possible lightning strikes in order to activate the necessary security protocols. PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System offers the possibility to automatically disconnect the most sensitive equipment in order to keep it safe, among other solutions.

  • Workers in open areas.
  • Loss of service.
  • •Equipment and materials exposed to risk.

storm detector ports

Ports

Activities such as refuelling, loading and unloading goods or transfering luggage and passengers in a port are high-risk operations during electrical storms. PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System allows for the monitoring of the evolution of the atmospheric electrical field and can easily be integrated in environmental observation automated systems. It is useful for decision-making related to safety and prevention in ports.

  • Workers in open areas.
  • Loss of service.
  • Economic losses.

lightning detector communication towers

Communication towers

Energy transmission towers, solar power towers and communication towers provide basic services whose continuity, quality, or rapid recovery need to be guaranteed. PREVISTORM® allows for the implementation of preventive measures such as the activation of auxiliary systems of power supply and/or the disconnection of sensitive systems, among other solutions.

  • Workers in open areas.
  • Loss of service.
  • Economic losses.

Storm Warning System:

lightning detector warning system

PREVISTORM® Thunderstorm Warning System

Class A Storm Detector is an electrostatic field intensity sensor based on the field mill principle that enables to:

  • Continuously measure and analyze the evolution of the atmospheric electric field.
  • Monitor storm cloud electrification processes.
  • Generate early warning notifications based on the increased risk of lightning strike.
  • Detect within a radius of up to 20km the incidence of lightning strikes.

This information provides a valuable time advantage to activate security measures to protect people and property.
