Skyscan P5-3 Lightning Detector - Latest Model
Skyscan is an “Instant Ranging Device” (IRD), which means that every detected strike is ranged immediately via the four (4) distance LED’s, and from the very first strike detected.
Skyscan has been around for many years. It uses two (2) detection antennas to help minimize spurious background noise from detected electro-magnetic signals, and calculates the range of each stroke detected.
SkyScan's patented technology samples and analyzes selected pairs of frequencies within a specific electromagnetic spectrum of a lightning stroke. By analysing the frequency and amplitudes of the observed lightning waveforms, Skyscan applies this information to determine the distance of that lightning stroke.
The simplicity of the hardware is made possible by the proprietary software, which provides the algorithms and performs the analysis of the lightning threat data.
It has a lightning detection range of up to 60 km.
Skyscan provides its threat alerts via an audible buzzer, and four (4) simple colour coded LED’s, which allows the user the ability to see the approximated range of each detected stroke immediately.
This is a standard unit, and has a number of optional accessories including carry pouch, wall mounting bracket, AC mains and DC Vehicle power adaptors.
This equipment can only detect Cloud to Ground lightning strikes and may be affected by close proximity to nearby RF noise sources.
In stock, ready for shipment from PERTH, WA.
Please remember that no lightning detection system is 100% accurate and should be used as an indication tool only.
