The backbone of Vaisala real-time lightning detection networks and solutions, these sensors deliver more complete real-time data.
Over the past 30 years, Vaisala has developed the most accurate lightning detection network available. At the heart of its ability to gather comprehensive real-time lightning data for almost any location on the planet is industry leading sensor technology. These sensors can build a network that delivers greater detection capabilities while requiring 70% less equipment to do so.
We also understand that not all lightning starts from miles away. In the uncommon event that a thunderstorm forms directly overhead, Vaisala also has sensors that can detect this right away and provide immediate notification so users can act quickly.
Vaisala lightning detection sensors capture more of the real-time lightning data required for effective early alerts, lightning reports, and accurate risk modeling, policy planning, and incident investigations. They deliver more precise data around more lightning strikes in every thunderstorm. Vaisala lightning detection technology is utilized in more than 45 countries — including by the U.S. National Weather Service and the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) for over 25 years — to maximize productivity and keep people safe.

Get advanced warning of overhead lightning threats by measuring the local atmospheric electric field.
TLP100 Series™ processes data from Vaisala’s low frequency (LF) sensors providing lightning location solutions for greater than 90% of cloud-to-ground (CG) and 50% of cloud (IC) lightning flashes.
Detects cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning with high detection efficiency and excellent location accuracy. It uses combined technology and provides large area coverage with fewer sensors leading to lower lifetime network ownership costs.
Ensure your Lightning Detection Network stays up and running.
The impact of lightning in maritime environments can be severe or even catastrophic, affecting safety and efficiency at every turn, especially at oil & gas and LNG terminals. Learn how real-time data can help address these challenges.
How close is too close? When it’s your job to maintain safety and efficient operations, every minute counts. Learn how to keep your airport safe and efficient when lightning strikes.
How can sensors at a small number of locations detect lightning so far away? Angles and times are part of the answer, as are remarkable insights into lightning behavior, ingenuity, software, and hardware.
Getting people out of harm’s way before lightning arrives and returning to business after the lightning threat has ended requires accurate real-time monitoring of the weather surrounding your facility.
Huge amounts of lightning occur around the world, and over two billion lightning events have been detected each of the last five years. And now, have enough data to start looking at some specific areas where lightning is a concern for the safety of people.
