The CS110 is used for lightning warning applications and in research applications for measuring the local electric field. It measures the vertical component of the atmospheric electric field at the earth's surface. The CS110 sensor is typically part of a larger electric-field system. It includes an integrated CR1000 datalogger, and so can be expanded with the addition of other sensors and peripherals.
Note: For a complete system that uses the CS110 Electric Field Meter Sensor, refer to the LW110 Lightning Warning System page.
Note: An embedded CR1000M datalogger module is required for every CS110 purchased.
Benefits and Features:
Low power consumption
Senses potential for lightning, providing warning before lightning strikes
Easy maintenance—stator easily removed for cleaning
Extensive diagnostic self-checking for each measurement reduces or eliminates scheduled maintenance
SG000 Strike Guard can be used in conjunction with our CS110 to create a complete lightning-threat measurement and analysis system
NOTE: An embedded CR1000M datalogger module is required for every CS110 purchased
