Visualize the Storm with Boltek PC Desktop Lightning Detectors. Ambient carries the most complete line of hardware and software solutions for the Boltek Lightning Detectors.
Boltek Lightning Detectors work by detecting the radio signals produced by lightning. These are the same signals you can hear on an AM radio during a thunderstorm. The 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.
