Lightning Detector

Introducing the TALOS Lightning Detector, engineered specifically for custom OEM solutions where situational awareness is paramount. As an industry-leading innovation, TALOS employs advanced weather station technology to accurately detect cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning up to 25 miles away, providing early warnings and ample time to shelter.

Recently, TALOS collaborated with Terex Utilities to integrate this state-of-the-art lightning detection system as an available option on their Hi-Ranger overcenter bucket trucks, surpassing OSHA and NOAA standards. This system features an in-dashboard display that reports the lightning strike distance, tracking as the storm gets closer and moves farther away. The TALOS in-cab alert and external horn for the worker in the bucket delivers vivid visual warnings with three distinct colors and powerful audible signals to indicate the storm’s proximity: green – 1 beep: 25 miles; blue – 2 beeps: 16 miles; and red – 3 beeps: 6 miles.

Additionally, TALOS offers a versatile, compact, portable lightning detector for professional and recreational activities to ensure safety.
