A lightning detection network is more than just putting together a few sensors. Vaisala experts will help you through the decision process, making sure you receive the right network at the right price. In fact, our lightning networks provide significantly greater accuracy with 70% fewer sensors than any alternative, which means your investment will provide long-term cost savings with superior performance.
A lightning detection network is a system of ground-based sensors, strategically placed to detect electro-magnetic pulses emitted by lightning. The sensors detect the electro-magnetic pulses, and a central processor combines the information from many sensors to characterize and pinpoint the lightning.
