Protection against lightning - Thunderstorm warning systems
Protection contre la foudre - Systèmes d'alerte aux orages
|Standard number:||IEC 62793:2016|
|Language:||English/French - Bilingual|
IEC 62793:2016 describes the characteristics of thunderstorm warning systems and evaluation of the usefulness of lightning real time data and/or storm electrification data in order to implement lightning hazard preventive measures. This standard provides the basic requirements for sensors and networks collecting accurate data of the relevant parameters, giving real-time information of lightning tracks and range. It describes the application of the data collected by these sensors and networks in the form of warnings and historical data. This standard applies to the use of information from thunderstorm warning systems (systems or equipment providing real-time information) on atmospheric electric activity in order to monitor preventive measures. This bilingual version (2018-11) corresponds to the monolingual English version, published in 2016-05. The French version of this standard has not been voted upon.
