Alert@ir®XT is an in-real-time and remote lightning strike warning system.

As there is an increasing requirement for the maintenance of protection against lightning equipments throughout the world, we have developed a system that will allow you to be informed in-real-time about the lightning events happening on an outside lightning protection whatever its type and trademark and thus to manage its maintenance.

An outside protection against lightning with a lightning rod must be checked every year and after each lightning strike to ensure its good working order. Source NFC 17-102 – September 2011 (art. 8.2). More than a normative obligation, keeping a security investment in good working order is a virtuous preventive approach.

The servicing and maintenance of your protection against lightning installation are as well necessary to the preservation of your manufacturer's and installer's warranties. To ensure a total security, you must be able to be sure of its efficiency at any time.

The Alert@ir®XT system is an exclusive solution designed and manufactured by LPS France® to meet the normative requirements, preserve your warranties and ensure your security all along the lifetime of your outside protection against lightning.

Why use the Alert@ir®XT system?

Alert@ir® XT

Fitted on a grounding conductor of a lightning protection, the Alert@ir®XT system sends an in-real-time warning by internet during a lightning strike.
If one of your installations is struck by lightning, you immediately receive a warning. The intensity level of the lightning strike is indicated on a scale from 1 to 3. It is thus possible to know which type of checking is necessary, the intervention urgency level and to organize the maintenance operation in order to preserve the protected structures.

All informations continuously collected are automatically transmitted to the server, dated, recorded and chronologically classified.
This information is necessary to draw up  documents relative to the carrying out, the checking and the maintenance of your installation. Those documents are imposed by the NFC 17-102 standard (art. 8.1 to 8.7).

What do I do if I receive a lightning strike warning ?

The NFC 17-102 standard imposes a check of your lightning protection installation each time the protected structure is struck by lightning (art. 8.2). This measure aims at ensuring the efficiency of your protection installation without any interruption. For this reason, simply receiving a lightning strike warning must leads you to check the integrity and the good working order of your product on the server.:

The Alert@ir®XT system also enables you to know the intensity of the lightning strike picked up by your product on a scale from 1 to 3. This feature, as the whole of Contact@ir® system, is a LPS France®  exclusive.

The intensity of the lightning strike picked up by your product and the result of its diagnosis assist in determining whether a visual or a complete check of the installation is necessary (cf. NFC 17-102 standard, art. 8.2 to 8.6), as well as the urgency level of the action to be taken.

In order to read those datas correctly, we advise to call on a LPS France® licensed agent who will know which are the essential  preventive measures to take for your protection and the preservation of your warranties.

Thanks to Rout@ir® you save time and avoid useless expenditure while ensuring the efficiency of your installation with targeted actions.
