A lightning detection sensor that enables a network with superior efficiency, optimal location accuracy, and system redundancy — all from a fewer number of sensors.
Vaisala LS7002 lightning detection sensors deliver a comprehensive, real-time view of lightning activity by detecting both cloud lightning pulses and cloud-to-ground lightning strokes.
The LS7002 is perfect for meteorological modeling, hazardous weather forecasting, early warning systems, and emergency management due to superior detection efficiency, optimal location accuracy, and system redundancy. Plus, powerful sensing capabilities mean sensors can be positioned up to 350 km (217 mi) apart.
You get the most comprehensive lightning detection network data for the most accurate and reliable real-time weather monitoring solution — all from a fewer number of sensors.
The LS7002 delivers 24/7, real-time lightning detection with precise classification of cloud lightning and cloud-to-ground lightning events. It also collects amplitude, polarity, and waveform data. Get all the detail you need for accurate forecasting and well-informed operational safety decisions.
The LS7002 lightning detection sensor captures the low frequency (LF) electromagnetic signals generated by lightning. This provides extremely accurate geolocation of lightning events as they happen at ranges up to 1,500 km (900+ mi).
With comprehensive network coverage that requires 70% fewer sensors, your total cost of ownership for installation, site hosting, and hardware maintenance is greatly reduced. It’s a more sustainable solution to meeting your lightning detection network needs.
