From the industry innovators who first developed modern lightning detection technology, a premium-quality visual and audible warning system designed to provide unattended, automated monitoring and conspicuous outdoor alerting of approaching lightning activity.
As one of the world’s leading providers of lightning detection technology and information, TOA Systems, Inc. has teamed up with Campbell Scientific, Inc.®, the market leader for rugged and reliable hardware solutions.
The result is a rugged, enterprise-level integrated lightning data, software and hardware warning solution that is second-to-none for a wide range of outdoor locations.
TOA Systems’ Visual Warning System (VWS) connects data from any TOA lightning detection network to Campbell Scientific’s RA110 visual and audible alarm hardware to enable remote location of one or several alarm systems for high-profile safety alerting.
Utilizing TOA’s VWS software, customizable alert regions, thresholds and warning types are established for each VWS alarm system based on the customer’s assessment criteria for potential risk to its people and infrastructure.
When the TOA network detects lightning within one of the customer’s defined regions, the VWS system triggers visual and/or audible alarms that warn anyone in the vicinity of the possible dangers approaching.
The VWS lightning warning criteria are highly configurable and can be set to escalate as lightning risk increases, determined by user-defined severity and proximity.
