The SG000 Strike Guard detects cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning within a 20-mile radius. Strike information is classified in three range categories as lightning detected within 5 miles, 10 miles, and 20 miles. To prevent false alarms, the SG000 requires an optical signal to coincide with a magnetic-field-change signal before reporting lightning.
The SG000 is typically mounted on the same tripod or pole as the CS110. The SG000 connects to the CS110 via the FC100, the 14291 Field Power Cable, and the FC100CBL1-L (typically 10+ feet), and the following equipment depending on which CS110 port it is connected to.
Lightning Detection Ranges
The SG000 has three categories for lightning detection range estimates:
- CAUTION: Lighting is within 20 miles.
- WARNING: Lightning is within 10 miles.
- ALARM: Lighting is within 5 miles.
CS I/O Port
- CS110CBL2-L (typically 9 feet)
- 16987 Peripheral Mtg kit
- CS110CBL1-L (typically 9 feet)
The SG000 is an add-on option to the CS110. Due to a contractual agreement, it cannot be sold without the CS110, as a stand-alone sensor.
Benefits and Features
- Fully integrates into CS110 system
- 20-mile detection radius
- Avoids false alarms with patented technology
- Periodic sensor and communication self-test
- Durable fibre-optic communication with connector-less technology
- Lightning-proof data communication
The SG000 is an optical-coincidence lightning sensor that detects actual lightning strikes for up to 20 miles away. Available as an option for our CS110 Electric Field Meter, the SG000 Strike Guard is used in conjunction with the CS110 to create a complete lightning-threat measurement and analysis system. Data from the two sensors can be used to control warning systems and to help personnel make evacuation and shutdown decisions.
- SG000 Strike Guard Lightning Sensor used with the CS110 Electric Field meter to provide a complete lightning-threat measurement and analysis system.
- An optical-coincidence lightning sensor that detects cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning within a 20-mile radius.
- Strike information is classified in three range categories as lightning detected within 5 miles, 10 miles, and 20 miles.
- The optical-coincidence approach requires a characteristic optical signal to coincide with a characteristic magnetic-field-change signal to report lightning.
