Available from Switchtec is a Lightning Current Counter from leading SPD manufacturer Citel which records localised lightning strikes.
The LSC-A Lightning Strike Counter is designed to detect and record impulse current conducted by the down conductors of a lightning protection system or by the earth wire of an installation with or without an installed surge protection system.
It is extremely useful to assess the stress placed on installed surge protection devices.
The LSC-A can detect lightning-induced voltage up to 100kA and can count up to 999,999 events before resetting. Requiring no external power supply, the device is powered by its internal battery, and has a life expectancy of over 10 years.
The design is a compact size measuring just 66 x 55 x 47mm and its housing is IP67 and manufactured from a high grade UL94-V0 thermoplastic, coloured green/yellow, making it highly visible and suitable for installation inside or outside of a property.
The counter is also manufactured in accordance to EN 62561-6.
Two versions are available: a direct cable/conductor mount or din rail mount.
