Jupiter TMS Lightning Detection System

Mission-Proven Lightning and Transient Monitoring for Your Assets

Lightning can infiltrate your power infrastructure and sensitive electromechanical systems in many ways. Direct lightning strikes to your facility or assets pose an obvious hazard, but nearby strikes can be equally damaging, particularly if lightning signals are strongly coupled into power and other utilities that enter your facilities. It pays to know when these lightning transients occur, and how damaging they are likely to be to your infrastructure.

SLS designed Jupiter TMS to reliably monitor, accurately measure, and quickly report lightning related transient signals that may compromise the integrity of your sensitive assets.
