AS3935 Lightning Sensor

Sensor IC interfaced to the Blitzortung controller. Info about the chip is at AMS AS3935



These lightning detectors are hobbyist grade and are not intended for safety or legal purposes. This particular sensor and controller software is purely experimental. The main Blitzortung pages use multiple stations to detect strikes. The AS3935 is a stand-alone device that relies on embedded algorithms to detect and locate the lightning.
