Lightning Strike Counter

ProLEC-6X have been specifically designed to monitor an equipment from surge incoming to AC supply system. It is able to define the number of both lightning and switching surge incoming to a specific site.

It consist of a rectifier, capacitor and en electronic switch connected to a mechnical counting relay and is totally moulded in a sealed box which is ideal for exposed installation. The complete assembly is the housed in an elegant alloy casting. A suitable window permits easy reading of the 6-digit counter.

The design of the circuit ensures that the counting relay is not energized for low lightning current impulses which are insignificant to the arrester capability and life. Since no gaps or series impedance are used, there is no risk of internal arcing and consequent explosive failure in the event of a short circuit following an arrester failure.

Special Feature
» Internally protected
» Count to 999,999 before resetting
» Uses the tower, etc, as an inductive shunt; voltage drop across the shunt triggers the counter
» Requires an electrical connection spaced 6' to 10' for Rohn 25 larger spacing for larger towers. The larger the lead separation the greater the counter's sensitivity
» Use a #14 or larger wire gauge for connections with TK clamps and CCK for corrosion free joints
» Momentary test with either polarity battery from 9V to 50V
» Weather resistance
