 Product Description

I2C Lightning Detector - Grove Connector Based Board

.1016GAnno

 

 The Grove I2C Lightning Detector - MOD-1016G is a programmable Lightning Sensor IC that detects the presence and approach of potentially hazardous lightning activity in the vicinity and provides an estimation on the distance to the head of the storm. The embedded lightning algorithm checks the incoming signal pattern to reject the potential man-made disturbers and various noise sources.

Lightning Detector 3D Printed Tower

Lightning Detector Pylon[/caption] The lighting detector pylon is to move the very sensitive MOD-1016G Lightning Detector away from the noisy electronics within the GroveWeatherPi.   We noticed early on that we were getting a lot of spurious lightning detection from the device.    Moving it about 30cm from the electronics in a separate pylon fixed that problem. If you don't want to print your own pylon, you can find this in store.switchdoc.com.  

Following is the Lightning Detector Pylon openSCAD code:

  1. hat does this work with?

    Posted by Geraint owen on Mar 6th 2017

    SwitchDoc Labs - What are you looking to interface to? Look at the downloads section on the product page - Raspberry Pi, Arduino, examples, specification.

    Also check out our product support forums. filled with helpful people!


    --------------------
    I wish it were a bit easier to get instructions with these additional sensors. Does this work with the weatherboard? One of the bigger products sold on this site? Its hard to tell directly.... Why?
