Davicom Introduces Lightning Counter
Designed to be mounted on a tower leg and count direct lightning strikes upon the tower
May 24, 2016
|QUEBEC — Lightning can be problematic for broadcasters. Davicom introduced a device to detect it in 2015; this year, the company has followed it up with a counter.
The DVLC-1 is designed to be mounted on a tower leg and count direct lightning strikes upon the tower.
A 30-meter fiber-optic cable (essentially strike-resistant and will not provide an electrical path for the lightning) will feed alert information back to any installed Davicom remote control unit.
