Lightning Detection for Outdoor Safety


Source: Columbia Weather Systems, Inc.

Lightning detection is now available with the Pulsar 800 Weather Station.


“The added lightning detection feature helps customers who are concerned with public safety in their planning of a wide range of outdoor activities,” CWS President Nader Khoury explains. “This ranges from sporting events, to public concerts and outdoor military training”.


The sensor analyzes radio wave emission of the lightning and delivers a count of recognized strikes within a 10 km (6.2 mile) radius. It is designed for professional meteorological applications and provides reliable data, even in extreme conditions.


In addition to lightning detection, the Pulsar 800 includes Doppler radar precipitation, ultrasonic wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, solar radiation, and an electronic compass.


Combined, these features make the ­Pulsar 800 “an all-in-one source for making informed decisions regarding public safety.” Nader says.

Columbia Weather Systems manufactures weather stations in the United States for use by government agencies and industries around the world.
