The StrikeAlert II is an all new design for the world's first convenient, dependable and easy-to-use personal lightning detector.
Finally, an affordable easy-to-use personal lightning detector that provides an early warning of approaching lightning strikes from as far away as 40 miles. Perfect for all outdoor sporting events, work and recreation.
|The power switch has three positions: On, Off and On with tone. The switch may also be depressed to indicate the direction of storm movement.|
|When first turned on, StrikeAlert performs a battery test. The LEDs will indicate the battery level, with each LED indicating about 20 hours of operation. The LEDs will light up, beginning with the red LED and leading up to the current battery level. The current battery level will be the final LED to light and will remain lit for two seconds. StrikeAlert will then begin its normal operation.|
|During normal operation, the green LED will be on continuously to indicate StrikeAlert is monitoring for lightning strikes. If the green LED is blinking, StrikeAlert is in the presence of interference.|
|Detecting Lightning Strikes|
|When a lightning strike is detected, StrikeAlert will light the appropriate LED indicating the distance of the strike This LED will remain lit for two minutes- unless another strike occurs during that time. If a more recent strike is further away, the LED indicating this distance will light for two seconds, and then return to complete the two minutes from the nearest strike. If a more recent strike is nearer, it will replace the previous LED reading. This LED indicator will be held for two minutes. This allows the user to see all the lightning activity within a 40 mile range, giving clearer visibility to the nearest strike in the last two minutes. If the power switch is in the "On with Tone" position, StrikeAlert will also generate tone(s) indicating the distance of the strike along with lighting the appropriate LED. This allows you to determine the storm's activity without having to monitor the LEDs.|
