Electric field sensors measure the local, atmospheric electric field at the earths’ surface and the fluctuations in field strength. By monitoring the field strength, the potential for cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning discharges can be detected, and advance warning can be made when conditions are becoming favorable for lightning.
The LW110 provides continuous monitoring of the local electric field and triggers warnings when there is the potential for lightning. Because warnings are based on measurements of electric field, inst...read more
The CS110 is used for lightning warning applications and in research applications for measuring the local electric field. It measures the vertical component of the atmospheric electric field at the ea...read more
The SG000 is an optical-coincidence lightning sensor that detects actual lightning strikes for up to 20 miles away. Available as an option for our CS110 Electric Field Meter, the SG000 Strike Guard is...read more
