    Lightning Detector on an Internal PCI card for desktop Computers

    Boltek's StormTracker uses state-of-the-art technology to make real-time lightning detection affordable. How does the StormTracker work? The StormTracker is an add-on to your IBM PC or compatible computer, allowing you to not only tell if lightning is near, but to see where it is.

    StormTracker detects lightning strikes up to 300 miles away and plots them in real time on a map of your area.

    With StormTracker, you are actually detecting the lightning strikes themselves. There are no online or recurring charges of any kind. StormTracker has two built-in alarms. The Close Storm Alarm will activate if a thunderstorm is detected closer than a preset distance. The Severe Storm Alarm activates if the number of lightning strikes per minute exceeds a preset limit.

    • Detect if lightning is in your area.
    • Receive early warning of approaching or developing storms.
    • Configurable Severe Storm and Close Storm Alarms.
    • Determine from which direction the approaching storm is coming.
    • Follow developing and decaying storms from first strike to last.
    • Save all data for future analysis.

    StormTracker keeps received data on your computers hard disk. This allows you to replay the previous few hours events in accelerated time. This feature allows continuous looping through the data from a user selectable start point up to present. Watching historical data in accelerated time gives great insight into the trend of the current storm. Now there is no more guessing if the storm is heading your way as with audible warning type systems. You can instantly see where the storm is and in which direction it is heading.

    StormTracker works by detecting the radio signals produced by lightning. These are the same signals you can hear on an AM radio during a thunderstorm. StormTracker's direction-finding antenna provides direction information while storm distance is calculated from received signal strength. Special processing in software reduces the effects of strike-to-strike energy variations providing more accurate distance information.

    StormTracker's antenna is a small black box (3" x 2" x 1.5") which may be mounted indoors (in a wood framed house for example) or outdoors. The antenna is typically mounted ten to twenty feet above the ground, away from large metal objects and sources of electrical noise such as televisions & computer monitors.

    StormTracker includes 50 feet of antenna cable. Supports up to 200 feet total cable length.

    Includes software for Windows XP/2000/ME/98/95: StormTracker-PCI V3.x Software for Windows
