Talos® Lightning Detector

Talos® Series Storm & Lightning Detector



The new patent-pending Talos® Series Storm and Lightning Detector provides storm safety awareness of lightning strikes in the area. The lightning detector has the ability to detect lightning and storm fronts up to 25 miles away. The lightning detector provides real-time lightning detection of both cloud to ground and cloud to cloud lightning activity.

Lightning and lightning strikes cause over 6000 deaths and injuries per year. Since 2006, lightning strikes were reported as the second leading cause of storm deaths in the United States. Most of these injuries could have been prevented had they known that lightning was in the area.

The Talos® Series lightning detector is a portable lightning detector that alerts you to approaching or departing storm fronts and lightning by sensing the distance of lightning strikes that are occurring in the area via audible and visual alerts.
