Wind & Lightning
There are multiple wind power generation facilities on the coastal region of the Sea of Japan that are installed in particularly remote places, such as the top of mountains or out in the sea. There are many lightning strikes on these wind turbines, especially during winter, and this lightning strike data needs to be collected.
Shoden Co., Ltd. develops and sells a lightning strike detection device, the TMZ-1000. Previously, strike data was collected manually from each terminal of each wind turbine via USB memory stick, but this involved traveling long distances to each turbine. Therefore, Shoden was looking to customize their TMZ-1000 with a solution that enabled the real-time collection of remotely-stored data that was more convenient.
Streamline Data Collection
Develop a more efficient lightning detection and data collection solution that could support real-time strike detection and analysis.
Support for RS-232C signals with the capacity to be embedded into the TMZ-1000 without affecting the existing control environment.
Reduce travel time, transportation costs and man hours involved in existing manual data collection process.
The ATEN SN3001 solved all of the specific concerns during our research and development of providing over IP capabilities to lightning strike detection devices.

Remote Data Collection
By incorporating the SN into the lightning detection device, lightning data can be collected remotely from anywhere at any time over IP.
In addition to supporting the utilization of renewal energy sources at wind farms, the solution can also be deployed at relay stations, radio towers, and more.
Meets Remote Work Demand
Not only contributes to significant reductions in man hours, time, and costs but also highly suitable for post-pandemic work practices.
