Instantly detect lightning and convective activity anywhere over land and sea. Delivered as a dedicated data stream – no investment in hardware necessary.
Vaisala owns and operates the National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) that provides accurate lightning data information across the USA.
Vaisala’s latest generation lightning detection sensors, the TLS200, identifies in-cloud (IC) and cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning with over 90% detection efficiency utilizing the latest in VHF interferometry and LF magnetic direction finding and time-of-arrival technologies, allowing the full spatial extent of thunderstorms to be known and understood.
TLP processes real-time total lightning data from various sensor configurations. The new TLP introduces improvements to the patented Vaisala location algorithm and new propagation correction services yielding improved location accuracy in networks to 250m or better.
Total Lightning Database TLD100 and TLD200 is a processing module in the Vaisala Thunderstorm Information System that specializes in archiving cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning data for forensic applications.
Vaisala Thunderstorm Tracking Software LTS2005 displays real-time lightning in easy-to-use formats for monitoring thunderstorm cell development, assessing severity, and forecasting storm path and intensity.
Vaisala TWX300 is an automated lightning threat identification and
warning for airports and lightning-sensitive operations.
Vaisala TSS928 is a state-of-the-art lightning detector that applies three major components of a lightning event –optical, magnetic and electrostatic pulses – to effectively detect and accurately report lightning events in real-time.
Vaisala Thunderstorm Electric Field Mill EFM550 integrates with Vaisala
local-area, real-time lightning systems to monitor the development and
dissipation of overhead lightning threats by measuring the local
atmospheric electric field.
Automated Lightning Alert and Risk Management System is an automated,
easy-to-use display of approaching and overhead lightning threats.
Vaisala STRIKEnet® is an online lightning location report that objectively and accurately reports individual cloud-to-ground lightning strikes at a specific location on the date of loss. Vaisala STRIKEnet® is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and within minutes, and reports are viewable online. The NLDN or the CLDN is the lightning data source.
The LS7002 is a sensor detecting low frequency (LF) electromagnetic signals generated by lightning in order to provide extremely accurate geolocation capability with industry leading measurement of lightning strength and lightning type classification.
Vaisala FALLS® is advanced software used by electric utilities to query historic lightning information in a GIS environment, and analyze its impact on their assets and systems by generating maps, graphs and statistics tables. The software is user-friendly and provides the tools you need to demonstrate recommended protection investments to your management team.
Vaisala Thunderstorm Manager is the latest web-based application to assist you in tracking approaching storms. It displays real time lightning discharges anywhere in the world using Vaisala’s global lightning detection network (GLD360) and high precision lightning detection networks (NLDN, for example). It supports a broad range of applications from synoptic or national scale lightning surveillance to keeping local ground and maintenance crews safe and operational stoppages at a minimum.
