|The SkyScan detects electromagnetic emissions from individual lightning strokes, and can be detected at long range by use of ad hoc sensors.|
|You are at immediate risk any time there is detected lightning activity within 9 miles of your location.|
|Storms often produce lightning, heavy rains and sometimes hail. Storm consequences may be more or less serious, ranging from personal damages to death.|
|To prevent these problems, we suggest an easy to use, dependable, ergonomic, portable and above all, economical solution: the SkyScan lightning detector.|
|The SkyScan lightning detector is the newest high technology weather monitoring product available anywhere in the world. It is a hand-held instrument with an electronic system to detect the presence of lightning/thunderstorm activity occurring within 40 miles of your location. It uses patented technology (Full digital microprocessor insuring accuracy and reliability) to determine the distance to the detected stroke. The distances are indicated in four ranges: 0-3 miles (0-5 km), 3-8 miles (5-13 km), 8-20 miles (13-32 km) and 20-40 miles (32-64 km).|
|Since SkyScan allows you to know the level of activity of the storm, it determines if it is moving towards, away or parallel to your position. Each time SkyScan detects a lightning stroke, it emits an audible warning tone (if this feature has been turned on by the user) and lights the Range Indicator column. The full column stays lit for approximately 3 seconds. This feature allows you to see the distance to the last, closest, detected stroke without waiting for SkyScan to detect a new stroke.|
|Accuracy: State-of-the-art electronics and full digital microprocessor insures accuracy and reliability.|
|Power: SkyScan can be powered by 2 x 9V batteries or 6 x AA batteries (adapter included), 120V AC adaptor SKAC (optional) or by a 12V Car cigarette lighter adapter SKDC (optional).|
|Unit has AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF after five hours of continuous operation for extended battery life.|
