The standard for preventive thunderstorm detection, EN 50536, has recently been published, in order to prevent threats to humans and property involved in this destructive atmospheric phenomenon.
This European Standard has its origins in the serious threat to humans and property involved in this destructive atmospheric phenomenon.
Each year, due to the direct or indirect effects of lightning strikes, property damage and also serious injuries or deaths of humans occurs, affecting the activity of both public and private sectors. The proliferation of electronic and data equipment, which is extremely sensitive to electro-atmospheric disturbances, has increased substantially the losses caused by this natural phenomenon.

ATSTORM®v2 is a thunderstorm detector, based on electric field measurement, that already meets this standard, reporting of all phases of a storm (Class I), and thus allowing a lead time of several tens of minutes to take pre-set preventive actions to reduce the risk of damage due to lightning strikes.
