55% of lightning injuries happen to those working outdoors. Additionally, 30% of sports-related lightning fatalities occur while playing golf.
Whether work or play, safety shouldn’t be an optional consideration. Safety should be an essential part of every outdoor occasion and event.
FACT: Thunder can only be heard from up to 10 miles away, but lightning CAN STRIKE from 25 MILES AWAY.
The TALOS Remote Lightning Detector detects lightning up to 25 miles away and provides both visual and audible alerts indicating lightning is in the area. Featuring the same technology as expensive weather stations, TALOS bright LEDs and loud audible alerts warn those outdoors to get to safety.
The TALOS portable lightning detector comes with a mount for easy mounting onto your golf cart or turf equipment.
**When the unit is first turned on, the unit is in “Normal Mode” and will actively listen for lightning/storm activity. Pressing the ON button a second time puts the unit into the auto-sleep mode. In this mode, the detector will sleep until motion is detected, then it will turn on. If no motion is detected for 30 minutes, the unit goes back to sleep.
The lightning detector should be mounted a minimum of 3 feet away from cell phones, wearables, or any other devices emitting electrical noise to avoid false positive signals. If the detector goes through a sequence of all colors, this indicates that it is detecting electrical noise interference.
The SFD-1000-R is a ready-to-install design solution.
Highly versatile for custom applications, the TALOS remote system is the answer to enhancing lightning awareness for golf turf maintenance equipment, and for implementing on golf carts.
When lightning is nearby, every moment counts. Maintenance workers wear protective ear equipment and use loud equipment. Soon than they realize, a storm is rapidly moving in with little time to act!
*Although the remote lightning detector is designed primarily for oems, end users can purchase and install themselves. Contact us at 727-532-6144 or email email@example.com.
