Beautiful to behold, lightning is not only one of nature’s most powerful phenomena, but one of the most common and destructive. That’s why Boltek has produced a line of state-of-the-art lightning detection systems. With Boltek lightning detectors you can detect and track thunderstorms up to 300 miles away, right from your personal computer.
Boltek is the leader in affordable thunderstorm tracking technology. Our Lightning Detection systems are installed around the world, constantly watching and warning of lightning. At Boltek, our ongoing research and development efforts have produced significant performance improvements in the past and many more enhancements are planned for the future.
Boltek was proud to be chosen as the supplier of lightning detection products for Toronto’s landmark CN Tower.
The CN Tower EdgeWalk operates seasonally from April to October in all weather except for electrical storms and high winds. The detection of lightning is a crucial factor within the structure’s safety program and the use of Boltek products is a testament to the company.
The long-range lightning detectors are helpful for advance planning, and can track and display lightning storms in real time on a PC or Laptop up to 300 miles away. The short-range lightning detector is helpful for monitoring nearby thunderstorms (up to 24 miles away), and has the
ability to detect high electric-field conditions which precede the first lightning strike. For close lightning strikes, the EFM-100’s accuracy is unsurpassed.
