Lightning monitoring system

Lightning current detection

Detect and evaluate lightning currents

Keep constant track of your systems and respond quickly to loads

Lightning strikes cause devastating damage to buildings and systems. It is practically impossible for employees to continuously monitor exposed or large-scale systems, which means that damage is detected too late. For early detection and evaluation of lightning strikes, the LM-S lightning monitoring system is available from Phoenix Contact. The following pages will show you how the system works and the possible areas of application.
