Lightning strike counter INGESCO®

Lightning strike counters with resettable system and installation in parallel.

The lightning strike counter CDR-UNIVERSAL, is a compact and strong device designed to detect lightning strikes upon any external lightning protection systems (lightning rods, Faraday cages, etc.). The new isolated sensor of the CDR-UNIVERSAL, ensures the lightning strikes detection independently of the protection down conductor status, or the quality of the counter fastening to the down conductor.

  • Great register capacity (999 impulses).
  • Easy visual control.
  • Detection of impulses from:
    • Intensity min: 1 kA (8/20 μs according to IEC 62.561-6:2011).
    • Intensity max: 100 kA (10/350 μs according to IEC 62.561-6:2011).
  • Designed exclusively for installation in parallel with the down conductor, never in series (sectioned down conductor).
  • Compact and Strong design.
  • Resettable model.
  • Detecting no ohmic contact: does not affect the status of the down conductor.
  • Durability.
  • Secure fastening by steel parts.

  • Fulfills standard norms UNE 21.186, NFC 17.102 and IEC 62.305.
  • Easy adaptation to the down conductor of any lightning protection system.
  • Allows controlling the lightning rod condition.
  • Works in any atmospheric condition (from -20ºC to 65ºC).
  • Offers updated and reliable information.
  • It does not need power supply.
  • Easy installation and operation.
