The technological solution that prevents risks from lightning storms
Lightning risk assessment based on local sensors, IoT technology and expert algorithms
ATSTORM®is the smart lightning storm early warning system, designed to activate and deactivate temporary preventive actions that minimise the risks derived from a possible lightning strike.
The ATSTORM® lightning storm detection system is a smart solution supported by IoT technologies, based on the evaluation of the conditions of the area to be protected and multiple data that support the expert algorithms.
The ATSTORM® system makes it possible to prevent occupational hazards, objectively determine real local risk and optimise downtime due to a possible lightning storm.
Benefits of ATSTORM® system
Identification of the risk generated by the formation or approach of a lightning storm at the earliest possible stage to activate temporary preventive measures.
REDUCTION OF DOWNTIME: SAVING TIME AND MONEY
Notifications of “no risk” based on real-time analysis of conditions rather than preestablished safety times for the resumption of regular functions.
Real-time information about local storm conditions. Easily available historical data.
Smart ATSTORM® system functioning
The electrostatic field is the only direct and unambiguous indicator of the risk of lightning strikes under any circumstances, according to IEC 62793:2020.
The ATSTORM® system collects real-time information from detection units and transfers it to AT-CLOUD. Through specialised algorithms the system estimates the risk of a lightning storm on the site, recognising the conditions that require an alert to be provided.
Continuous monitoring of the electrostatic and electromagnetic field, detecting local risk before the start of discharges, as well as lightning strikes tens of kilometres away.
Local data is sent to the cloud where expert algorithms accurately identify storm formation or approaching storm in the area.
Objective multichannel alerts
The processed information is sent to the user in form of alerts, providing anticipation time (tens of minutes) to initiate preventive actions.

The ATSTORM® system features
The information is centralised for customers with multi-location and can be managed from anywhere using multi-channel management solutions (private web portal, mobile devices, SCADA integration, e-mail, sound alarms, etc.).
- Mobile App for the visualisation and receiving of alarms in real-time.
- Real-time status visualisation of the equipment on a private web portal with an indication of the local risk.
- Real-time data integration with SCADA systems through various protocols.
- Alerts indicated on the map and in a pop-up element accompanied by sound.
- Generation of reports in PDF and downloading of CSV format files for studies and reports for the user.
- Access to the history of alerts and details of the electrostatic field evolution.
