Product Description
Measuring the static electric field generated by thunderclouds the Boltek EFM-100 not only detects nearby lightning but can detect the atmospheric conditions which precede lightning. Electric field data is displayed and graphed on your desktop computer using the included software.

For complete electrical isolation from the field mill outside, the EFM-100 connects to your computer using a fiber optic cable. The EFM-100 features aluminum and stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance, gold plated connectors throughout, and the highest quality ball-bearing brushless dc motor for excellent reliability.

Tripod shown in picture is optional.

These are built to order and ship from the manufacturer in Canada. Please allow 2-5 business days for the item to leave the warehouse. NOTE: Faster than Ground shipments methods may incur additional charges.

Electric fields develop wherever there is a difference in electric potential. If the electric field gets high enough you can feel your hair stand on end (if this happens outdoors during a thunderstorm crouch down with your feet together as you are about to be struck by lightning.) An electric field is what attracts your hair to a charged comb or a charged balloon.

The electric charge contained in a thundercloud also generates an electric field. This field can be measured on the ground.

Electric field is measured in Volts per meter (3.3 feet.) The electric fields which accompany thunderstorms normally measure in the thousands of Volts per meter, usually abbreviated to kV/m.

Lightning can be detected as a sudden change in the electric field.

The EFM-100 software has three built-in alarms: High Field, Very High Field, and a Lightning alarm. Both the the High Field and Very High Field alarms activate if the electric field magnitude rises above a preset level (user configurable). For example: 1 kV/m for High Field alarm and 5 kV/m for the Very High Field alarm.
