The SkyScan lightning detector uses a patented dual-antenna technology
for unsurpassed accuracy
This sophisticated SkyScan lightning detector is commonly used by the military and major airlines. The Skyscan lightning detector is capable of detecting lightning strikes at an accuracy of 1/4 mile or less for strikes within 1 mile and an accuracy of 1 mile for strikes within a 40 mile range. This Skyscan lightning detector also has built-in software that indicates if interference is present from outside electronic sources. Each time SkyScan detects a lightning strike it emits an audible warning tone and lights the LED range on the detector. The distances are indicated in four ranges: 0-3 miles, 3-8 miles, 8-20 miles and 20-40 miles. When SkyScan detects lightning patterns of severe storms, it sounds a 15 second continuous Severe Thunderstorm Alarm tone.
