“The lightning detection feature helps customers who are concerned with public safety in their planning of a wide range of outdoor activities,” CWS President Nader Khoury explains. “This ranges from sporting events to military training.” Electric substations is another application where O and M scheduling is affected by the presence of lightning.
The new Pulsar 800 Weather Station from Columbia Weather Systems includes a lightning detection sensor that analyzes radio wave emission of the lightning and delivers a count of recognized strikes within a 10 km (6.2 mile) radius. It is designed for professional meteorological applications and provides reliable data, even in extreme conditions.
In addition to lightning detection, the Pulsar 800 includes Doppler radar precipitation, ultrasonic wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, solar radiation, and an electronic compass.
Combined, these features make the Pulsar 800 “an all-in-one source for making informed decisions regarding public safety,” Nader says.
Pulsar is CWS's top-of-the-line weather station model offering the ease of all-in-one sensor head with several different meteorological parameter configurations to choose from including Doppler Radar rain measurement.
Weather Stations from Columbia Weather Systems offer i nstantaneous, on-site weather data for operational decisions in public safety and industries affected by meteorological conditions, trusted by industry and government agencies worldwide.
