Handheld Lightning Detection Device Adds To Construction Crew Safety

INO-product-photoBoulder, CO – INO™ Technologies recently introduced a handheld device that combines weather data with lightning detection, making it useful for contractors and tradespeople whose work leaves them exposed to the weather.

“The INO Weather Pro™ brings together weather data and local lightning protection for not only outdoor adventurers, but commercial users such as construction and mining crews,” said Michael Lands, INO Technologies founder. “Though most lightning detection technology relies on national weather data feeds and requires an Internet or cellular connection, the INO Weather Pro has its own sensor providing real-time local lightning detection and direction anywhere, anytime — critical information necessary to keep your crews safe. No other device has all the features we’ve included.”

Handheld weather monitoring has made great technical advances in recent years, adding to the safety of today’s commercial and industrial industries. The INO Weather Pro’s data and alerts allow outdoor workers to make informed and educated decisions about what is going on outside and how long to stay outdoors.

“We’ve perfected the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ approach to personal weather intelligence by combining lightning, temperature, atmospheric pressure and humidity sensors in a single, handheld device,” said Lands. “The INO Weather Pro adds the missing link of lightning detection to these classic weather indicators, plus heat index, altitude and dew point for a total of seven full-service capabilities.”

The INO Weather Pro detects the distance of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes as far away as 40 miles, providing visual and auditory feedback of lightning strike distances. With an updatable software interface and a touch screen display, users are able to customize their dashboards with the information most important to them. The portable device is water resistant and runs on a USB charged Lithium battery.
