LD-250M Lightning Detector

    Basic installation instructions for the lightning sensor are printed on the top of the unit to aid in deployment.
    • Rugged die-cast aluminum enclosure
    • Rugged MIL spec connectors
    • Rugged aluminum front panel pushbuttons
    • Receiver and antenna are waterproof to IP67 standards.
    • LD-250 Lightning Detector has two built-in alarms: a Close Storm Alarm and a SevereStorm Alarm.
    • The Close Storm Alarm will activate if a thunderstorm is detected closer than a preset distance. The Severe Storm Alarm activates if the number of lightning strikes per minute exceeds a preset limit.
    • The LD-250 will sound an alarm tone when either alarm activates. Front panel pushbuttons allow both the Strike tone and Alarm tones to be disabled.
    • The computer can also be configured to sound an alarm tone and/or pop up a notification window when an alarm activates.
    • Alarm status is indicated by the color of the Close Storm distance circle and Severe Storm status indicator in the top left corner of the map window.
    • Strike rates, both Close Strikes/Minute and Total Strikes/Minute are shown for the previous hour on the Strike RateTrend Graph letting you easily see if storms are increasing in severity or dying off.
    • Noise indicator shows if local interference is affecting the ability to detect far away lightning.
    • A custom vector map allows you to zoom into any region. Zoom out to the maximum range of 750 miles (1500 miles across) or zoom in as close as 15 miles .
