Municipal Unit

Mobipax's Municipal Lightning Detector is a product designed to estimate the distance from the unit to thunderstorms based on the strength of the storms. The unit can be mounted on a pole, or a building, in parks, pool areas, golf courses or any location where the unit can be powered while in an outdoor space. The large siren and super-bright LED's to indicate the strength of lightning events, alert users to the changes in storms intensity. This provides a layer of protection for the public so they may reach a safe location away from the storm preventing a possible incident.

The detector is tube shaped, 6 feet long x 3 inches round, and is powered with 120VAC. A green Power LED indicates if the unit is on. The device is FCC Part 15B approved. It has mounting clips to mount on a wall or pole/beam. The pole is made of aluminum and high-strength transparent poly carbonate to withstand sports-related impacts.
The 120VAC must be available and wired by an electrician.
