Meteorological equipment specialist, Biral, has launched its new Lightning Works software program to work with its BTD-200 lightning warning system.
In combination the system sends warning email and SMS text messages when thunderstorm activity is detected and when it clears.
The system comprises a lightning detector which is placed outside, either on its tripod mount or permanently installed, whilst a PC located indoors runs the supplied Lightning Works software.
Lightning Works Messenger has built-in language support for eight languages and runs on current Microsoft PC and server operating systems. It can be installed on the same computer as either a Lightning Works client or server, or any other computer on the same local network.
An essential requirement is that the computer on which it is installed has a reliable internet connection; this is required to send email and SMS messages.
