TOPBAS GRUP (Turkey)
lightning strike counter with a testing jack. ARES LSC
is simply mounted at any location along the downconductor route. Its purpose is to record the number of strikes captured and conveyed by the downconductor. When the lightning rod receive an impact of the lightning strike, discharge counter detects the energy dissipated by the down conductor, thereby incrementing the number. ARES LSC
operates by sensing current by means of an inductive pick up loop. With the voltage impulse detected by the current transformer (CT) a trigger to the pulse counter then turns the counter to register the lightning event. The equipment does not require either external or internal power supply, as it is electromechanical and uses the power of the induced current dissipated through the down conductor. Features
6 digits upto 999,999 counts
IP 67 enclosure testable using testerDescriptionARES
Lightning Strike Counter tested for 100 KA lightning impulse current in a transparent polyplastic enclosure.
