Fault Analysis and Lightning Location System - FALLS

Vaisala FALLS (Fault Analysis and Lightning Location System) is user-friendly client/server software that allows utilities, wind farm operators, and other commercial operators the ability to easily determine if lightning has affected an asset. Quickly analyze events and access historical lightning data for both near-real time and past occurrences. FALLS Client software allows you to be proactive in your approach to determining damage caused by lightning. The software provides the ability to quickly and easily perform fault correlations on an event-by-event basis, obtain statistics concerning the number of lightning events or magnitudes for design, and evaluate lightning challenges to an asset (e.g. a power line or wind turbine) or an area, for input to maintenance prioritization.
