Introducing the New BTD-350 Thunderstorm Detector

Oct 24 2017 Read 590 Times

The BTD-350 Thunderstorm Detector from Biral is a standalone sensor that reliably detects the presence of all forms of lightning to a range of 83km. The unique quasi electrostatic operating principle gives the detector a very low false alarm rate and the ability to warn of the risk of overhead lightning.

The ability to reliably detect and range cloud-to-cloud lightning, which is typically much more common than cloud-to-ground strikes, makes the BTD-350 much more sensitive to the presence of storms compared to devices that rely on radio detection. The electrostatic operating principle allows the sensor to warn of the risk of overhead lightning before the first discharge occurs.

Virtually maintenance free in operation, the BTD-350 can either interface directly to an integrated system or be operated using the supplied PC compatible display and logging software. The optional warning relay module allows the sensor to automatically sound alarms whenever a storm approaches.

Features include; Warns of overhead lightning risk even before the first lightning discharge, Highly immune to radio interference which is the major cause of false alarms in traditional standalone detectors, 83km (45 NM) detection range exceeds the US Federal Aviation Administration requirements, Detects cloud-to-ground and as well as weaker but more common cloud-to-cloud lightning, Detects charged precipitation, Meets FAA performance requirements for aerodrome use, Optional direction finder, Rugged design for marine applications, Virtually maintenance free, 2 Years Warranty.
