Innovative Lightning Sensor Wins "Best of Sensors Expo" Gold Award

ams AS3935 Lightning Sensor has won the gold “Best of Sensors Expo” Award for 2012.

The award was presented during the Sensors Expo & Conference held in Rosemont, IL on June 6, 2012. Melanie Martella, the Executive Editor of Sensors magazine gave away the awards.

The ams AS3935 Lightning Sensor has the capacity to detect lightning that occurs up to a distance of 40 km. The sensor features a sensitive RF receiver that is designed for detecting electrical emissions that occur due to lightning. The AS3935 sensor has a proprietary algorithm that converts the RF signal into a distance form to estimate the position of the head of the storm. The algorithm considers data from meteorological surveys and then estimates the distance of the storm from as far as 40 km to as near as 1 km. The algorithm does not consider signals from microwave ovens and motors.

Martella stated that the magazine was on the lookout for innovative and smart designs, networking and applications, and the entries received in 2012 displayed excellent integration, innovation and ability to be used in an easy manner. The awards recognized all the winners.

ams’ Wireless Product Line Director, Bruce Ulrich stated that winning the award is a testament to the exceptional innovation in the integrated AS3935 Lightning Sensor. The sensor required low power and a small board space that allows it to be used for portable products.
