Lightning Strike Counter Applications

System failures happen. Replacing equipment is expensive. Often the cause of problems stays undetermined. Lightning damage is often subtle and the underlying cause of undocumented failure. The Lightning Strike Counter keeps track of the number of times that a facility or equipment has suffered a direct strike and can assist in determining the need for additional means of security such as grounding, surge suppression, and lightning protection. You can view typical installation locations in the application maps to the right.

How it Works

Unique in both operation and design, the Lightning Strike Counter uses a 2-wire connection to any metal conductor for the detection of lightning-induced voltage so conductor dimensions are unimportant. The unit captures up to 999,999 events before automatically resetting. Requiring no external power supply or internal battery for operation, the design of the LSC-7D includes a NEMA 4X/IP66, UV stabilized polycarbonate enclosure with surface mount flanges, which is UL94V-0 flame rated and suitable for either indoor or outdoor installation. Enclosures are built to provide protection against extreme environmental conditions and hazards.
