SG000 Strike Guard Lightning Sensor


The SG000 is an optical-coincidence lightning sensor that detects actual lightning strikes for up to 20 miles away. Available as an option for our CS110 Electric Field Meter, the SG000 Strike Guard is used in conjunction with the CS110 to create a complete lightning-threat measurement and analysis system. Data from the two sensors can be used to control warning systems and to help personnel make evacuation and shutdown decisions.

Benefits and Features

  • Fully integrates into CS110 system
  • 20-mile detection radius
  • Avoids false alarms with patented technology


Detailed Description

The SG000 Strike Guard detects cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning within a 20-mile radius. Strike information is classified in three range categories as lightning detected within 5 miles, 10 miles, and 20 miles. To prevent false alarms, the SG000 requires an optical signal to coincide with a magnetic-field-change signal before reporting lightning.

The SG000 is typically mounted on the same tripod or pole as the CS110. The SG000 connects to the CS110 via the FC100, the 14291 Field Power Cable, the FC100CBL1-L (typically 10+ feet) and either of the following depending on which CS110 port it is to connect to:

  • CS I/O Port:
    • CS110CBL2-L (typically 9 feet)
    • SC932A
    • 16987 Peripheral Mtg kit
  • RS-232 Port:
    • CS110CBL1-L (typically 9 feet)

The SG000 is an add-on option to the CS110. Due to a contractual agreement, it can not be sold without the CS110, as a stand-alone sensor.


  • Detection Range: up to 20 mile radius
  • Enclosure Rating: NEMA 4X


The SG000 is used with our CS110 Electric Field Meter.
