Lightning Flash Counter
Family : Lightning Conductor
Category : Lightning Flash Counter
The lightning flash counter is designed to keep a record of all direct lightning
strikes on the external
lightning protection system (Prevectron, single rod, meshed cage, ?). The digital
display (6 digits) allows a direct and comfortable reading of the number of recorded
Lightning discharges counting and saving requires no external power supply and is
not thus dependent on the life cycle of the internal battery. The internal long
duration lithium battery is only required for diplaying strikes figure when the
button located on the front panel is pressed.
The lightning flash counter is fixed directly on the down-conductor using 2
mounting flanges located on the back face. No interruption of the down conductor
is necessary, thus allowing an excellent electrical continuity of the installation
down from the rod to earthing the system.
The counter records the lightning current by induction at the time of passage in
the down conductor.
