The lightning strike counter Compt@ir® consists of a 6 digits display. Each lightning strike is recorded when it comes through by incrementing one unit (the rightmost number).
Watertight (IP65), robust and reliable, it operates without any power supply and records positive or negative lightning strikes.
The lightning strike counter displays the total number of lightning strikes having struck the Outside Protection against Lightning Installation (OPLI).
It is necesary to regularly watch over the display for a good follow-up of the installation. The lightning strike counter is essential for the good maintenance of the OPLI (cf. NFC 17-102 : a checking shall be done after each lightning strike).
This regular monitoring doesn't require a travel with Contact@ir® + Rout@ir® option. On top of that, you will be warned in real time in case of lightning strike event.).
It can be set up and works on any type of existing downward conductor (flat, round, …) thanks to its universal fastenings. Compt@ir® lightning strike counters are compliant with the standards in force (NFC 17-102, NF EN 50164-6).
