Smart lightning counters for efficient decision making
(Article) ATLOGGER lightning smart counter allows not only knowing the number of strikes to a structure but also other interesting parameters such as date and time of the strike, amplitude and polarity of the discharge as well as an estimation of its charge and specific energy.
This information is highly useful for solving engineering problems related to damages caused by lightning. Routine and preventive maintenance tasks, the design and the safety of the installations,… all of them can benefit of this information since the stress suffered by the object under study can be quantified thanks to the statistics provided by ATLOGGER.
ATLOGGER is simple to place in since there is no wish for cutting the down-conductor. info keep by the device are going to be transfer with alittle USB memory stick and dump to a laptop computer where the ATLOGGER package has been place in. Like this, readings unit detain text or program format, ready to work with them, thus obtaining clear and trustable information which is able to be saved, analysed and verified at any moment.
