Schneider Electric announces enhancements to WeatherSentry system for lightning tracking

August 1, 2016 - Frontline enhancements have been made to Schneider Electric’s weather intelligence platform, increasing the capabilities of its lightning tracking solution. The addition of a user-searchable lighting inspection data archive means that utilities and wind farm operators now have a  tool for short- and long-term lightning damage analysis.

Utilizing the best lightning detection networks in every region of the world, Schneider Electric’s WeatherSentry solution provides daily reports on potential lightning strikes against a set of critical assets, allowing utility and wind farm managers to pinpoint inspection and maintenance schedules. This reduces maintenance costs while also minimizing the risk that damaged assets will go unnoticed and cause greater issues down the road.

Additionally, lightning inspection data archives, with powerful search and filter tools, give users the ability to generate custom lightning data reports filtering a number of variables. Access to this information supports a wide variety of critical business functions, including forensic analysis of past events for insurance claims and long-term analysis of lightning activity for smarter lightning-resilient infrastructure investment decisions.
