Frontline enhancements have been made to Schneider Electric’s weather intelligence platform, increasing the capabilities of its leading lightning tracking solution. The addition of a user-searchable lighting inspection data archive means that utilities and wind-farm operators now have a powerful tool for short and long-term lightning damage analysis that will save time and money.
By using the best lightning detection networks in every region of the world, Schneider Electric’s WeatherSentry provides users with daily reports on potential lightning strikes on critical assets. This lets utility and wind-farm managers better pinpoint inspection and maintenance schedules, reducing maintenance costs and minimizing the risk that damaged assets will go unnoticed and cause greater issues down the road.
Additionally, first-of-its-kind lightning inspection data archives (with powerful search and filter tools) give users the ability to generate custom lightning data reports by 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.
While lightning will remain a formidable foe for utilities and wind-farm operators, its impact on operations can now be managed better than ever before. Learn more here.
