Stand alone lightning detector providing data for alerts as part of ensuring a safer working environment.

Lightning Detectors

Lightning detection units are a critical safety tool that assist with managing and minimising the risk of a lightning strike to exposed field personnel and damage to equipment. Also in the case where there are explosive charges set in preparation for blasting, a lighting detector can provide an early warning system that would enable management to order the evacuation of a site until there is no possibility of an unscheduled detonation caused by a rogue lighting strike in the immediate area.

Meridian Mining Services has the ability to install and integrate lightning detection sensors, such as the Vaisala TSS928, EFM550 and associated software into an existing communications network, or lighting strike data communication can also be integrated into an existing deformation monitoring system radio communication network in order to consolidate infrastructure and save costs.
