Hi

The component 403 or L403 has been detached due to shipping. the part was in the bag as it is close to the power input does the component have polarity?  Need to know before soldering back on. See the attached photor admin removed corrupted image data

  How to get alerts of fault or missing GPS
Posted by: jchonig - 2020-12-30, 17:27 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (2)

I'd like a progmatic way of finding out if my System BLUE is having issues.   Such as a fault, or GPS not working.

Is there a way to query the device for status so I could generate an e-mail from a script?

Before I go and start parsing the HTML, is there an easier way?

Thanks.

Jeff

  Power via POE Splitter
Posted by: jchonig - 2020-12-24, 14:01 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (6)

Has anyone tried powering a System BLUE via a POE (802.3af or 802.3at) splitter?

Since I have a POE capable switching, this seems like a good option to simplify the wiring.

Thanks.

  Question on lightning.
Posted by: kalyubave92 - 2020-12-16, 16:28 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - No Replies

Has anyone on here ever had their tent struck by lightning? If so, what happens? Does it ravage the tent? Were you okay inside and the tent poles channeled the electricity into the ground? Or are you pretty much toast if your tent gets struck with you in it?
I’m curious. Last weekend I got caught in a wicked thunderstorm that seemed to strike very close to my tent. I was on top of a barren plateau so the tent was one of the taller objects around. I minimized my space and stayed on my sleeping pad for insulation, but was still terrified until the storm passed. What is proper protocol in this situation?

  How "wide" is a bolt of lightning?
Posted by: lokaupdes34 - 2020-12-16, 16:11 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

It seems like when you see clips of lightning striking in the American Midwest, the lightning is far away and appears to be fairly large in width given the distance from the camera. And then when you see clips of a tree that is 20 feet away getting struck, the bolts of lightning appear about the same width as those that could be miles away.
So my question is, is the apparent similarity in width between distant bolts and close bolts just a coincidence or a case of selective memory on my part? And most importantly, on average, how "wide" is a bolt of lightning?

  Data access for bushfire research project
Posted by: ryanstocks00 - 2020-12-15, 12:37 - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hi All,

I am new to the forum but have been using the lightning maps for a while out of personal interest. I am now working on a research project as part of the bushfire initiative at the Australian National University in which we are modelling the potential use of drones to quickly scan recent lightning strikes for potential ignitions to allow for early suppression of any ignitions in bushfire prone areas. It would be amazingly helpful to be able to access the historical data that you have collected in order to provide realistic scenarios for this modelling. Is there any chance that this would be possible? It would be entirely non-commercial and we would be more than happy to reference the source Smile

Many thanks,

Ryan
