Since 2005, we are involved in manufacturing, supplying and exporting durable Lightning Protection Products. These products are used for measuring the strength of electrical field or lightening, before its arrival in monitoring radar and thus providing enough time for precaution measures that are needed to be taken further. Offered products are highly applauded for the two level alarm that these products provide, one for alert and other for the connected main alarm that will warn for the impending danger. Lightening Protection Products are ideal for golf courses and other playing grounds; for mines sites, where explosives are used; construction sites and various outdoors.
1) Early "detection of lightning activity within 15km
2) "Alert" alarm signaled when lightning approaches within 8-10 km
3) "All Clear" siren once the storm has passed
4) Data collection via download
The LPI® Lightning Warning System is a non-directional local detection instrument designed to provide early warning of an approaching storm front that contains lightning discharges. It has been designed to give warning to personnel that lightning may occur within the area. The Lightning Warning System is microprocessor controlled which provides concise easily understood alarms; it provides an alarm situation when the internal analysis of prevailing conditions indicate the approach of lightning. The system antenna senses alterations in the electric field strength and also detects both near and far lightning discharges. An alarm is triggered when either the static field changes or when a far or nearby lightning discharge is detected. Two levels of alarm status are provided by the system.
1) Warning Alert Status : Is given when the system detects the presence of lightning within a 10-15 kilometer radius or that the electric field strength approaches 4kV/m. The Warning Alert is the first indication that a storm may be approaching and could arrive in the area being monitored within approximately 20-30 minutes. No action needs to be taken at the Warning Alert stage; this first level of alarm is to alert the user of lightning activity, however it may bypass the monitored area.
2) Alert Alarm Status : Is given when the system detects lightning discharges within an 8-10 km radius or that the electric field strength has risen to 7kV/m. The Alert Alarm indicates that the storm front is approaching the monitored area and is likely to arrive in approximately 10-15 minutes. In the event of a storm cell forming directly overhead, the system will detect this and trigger the Alert Alarm. When the Alert Alarm status is announced it will activate an external alarm (siren) to warn of impending danger.
Early warning of lightning in close proximity allows for appropriate safety precautions to be implemented across a wide variety of industry groups. Typical industry applications for the LPIâ® LWS include:
1) Mining Sites including applications where explosives are used for blasting purposes.
2) Construction Sites.
3) Oil and Gas Production.
4) Sports such as golf, football, tennis and horse racing tracks.
5) General outdoor recreational activities.
One of the most common applications where the LPI® LWS is utilized is in providing lightning warning for golf courses. Death and injuries as a result of lightning is not uncommon to golfers all over the world. With golf course management bound by a "duty of care" to all golfers and course employee's, the LPI® LWS provides an accurate and reliable lightning detection system which removes the guess work with respect to approaching electrical storms and allows for the safe and timely postponement of play.
