Description

The Grove AS3935 Lightning sensor is an easy-to-use sensor built around the AS3935 IC, which can detect both cloud-to-ground and intra-cloud types of lightning, for up to 30 or 40 km. It is programmable with I2C or SPI communication and supports 3.3V and 5.0V power supply.

This sensor evaluates the electric fields in the air and verifies the specific characteristic waveform of Lightning, finally sending the output to the development board. It represents a great application of electric field processing, which can be used to create alert systems for Lightning or violent storms approaching and for making complete forecast meteorological stations with adverse conditions alert.

It belongs to the Grove ecosystem and shares the same simple connection and simple operation. It is easy to use, requiring no preliminary warm-up time. It supports both 3.3V and 5.0V power supply, offering low power consumption. This will be your great tool to get started with electric field processing.

The designer DAVIDE COGLIATI , the owner of a solution company SOFTSYSCO GENTECH, has years of experience in special electronics R&D. He believes well-working concepts don't need to be complicated but linear and can be easily manufactured. Therefore, he is focusing on the exploration of those projects that show simplicity but with great power.

The AS3935 lightning sensor has been licensed to Seeed to sell. DAVIDE COGLIATI will provide the tech support and Seeed will fulfill the order with hardware quality guaranteed.

FAQ

How does the Lightning sensor work?

The working principle of the sensor is based on the electric fields that are present in the air during lightning events or plugging in your stereo or electric wave cooker in common life. On the board, there is an LC circuit tuned to work to 500 kHz with a narrow band centered on this central frequency. This seems the best way to make a preliminary selection of existing electric signals in the air.

Why do some mistakes usually occur?

Some human activity will be captured as a lightning-front storm if they produce similar pulsed electromagnetic waves.

What Is Seeed Fusion Licensed Products Program

Seeed licensing means that the licensor (cooperative partner) grants its own products (software or hardware), trademarks, brands, etc. to the licensee (Seeed) in the form of a contract. Seeed will assist with all electronics manufacturing including structural parts, testing, certification, provide engineering and quality assurance services, and promotion, sales and distribution around the world using Seeed’s own network and channels. Seeed will ensure that your product is well looked after from start to finish.
