Wxline and IGS Asia Pacific

In business since 2001, Wxline is the leader in the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art systems which address the most demanding lightning safety and equipment protection needs.

Critical safety, warning, and protection equipment must function reliably when needed most, so Wxline designs systems that minimize the potential for human error and function in severe weather and a lightning environment — immune to power outages, loss of internet, loss of cell phone service, and loss of personal computers. IGS Asia Pacific Pty Ltd is an authorised distributor of Wxline in Asia Pacific Region. IGS provides Wxline products to save customers from the costly repairs and loss of productivity associated with surge damage.

Design Philosophies and Manufacturing Principles

  • Automate all system functions
  • Harden all electrical and mechanical materials for maximum durability and reliability.
  • Put control in the hands of the user
  • Build upon prior designs for uniformity
  • Integrate all systems for inter-connectivity
  • Simplify controls to minimize training needs

Lightning Detection Systems

Lightning Detection Systems

Designed for critical applications, Strike Guard monitors cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning and provides contact-closure signaling at user-set lightning activity thresholds. Patented optical signal processing and proprietary optical-coincidence technology prevent false alarms.

Strike Guard enables automated activation of warning systems for human safety, and initiation of data backup and generator start-up, while also shutting down and/or isolating electrical systems for the duration of the electrical storm.

The Strike Guard Sensor delivers:

  • Fully automatic alarm triggering with user-set range categories
  • 20-mile detection range with lightning events categorized by proximity: within 20, 10, & 5 Miles
  • No false alarms! Patented technology
  • Sensor and communication self-test
  • Sensor is battery-powered for easy installation
  • Durable Fiber-Optic communication with connector-less technology
  • Lightning-proof data communication
  • NEMA-4X Sensor enclosure
  • Lightning Data Receiver with integral battery back-up
  • Includes Strike Guard Simulation Software for training and testing
  • Fully automatic WAVE Siren activation available to notify personnel of lightning events
  • Optional Strike View Software provides lightning data displays, email and text message notifications, audible and visual lightning alarms, and lightning data reporting

Strike View Software

Download Strike View Server Software and connect the computer and Strike Guard Lightning Data Receiver for lightning data displays, email and text message notifications, audible and visual lightning alarms, and lightning data logging.

Strike View helps users analyze storm progression, categorize lightning information, and estimate the time to resume operations

Sequencer

The WAVE Sequencer receives RF Transmitter messages and provides three outputs to control relays/contactors appropriate for managing the loads represented by pumps, irrigation systems, and other critical equipment. Includes 3-foot antenna, radio receiver, battery backup, AC power supply and 25 ft. antenna cable with stainless steel antenna mount.

Critical Asset Protection Bulkhead

Implement automated active lightning protection-by-isolation of industrial control systems and central pump stations by combining best-engineering-practice of Passive Lightning Protection with Wxline’s fully-automatic Active Lightning Protection bulkheads. CAPB capabilities include:

  • Selective isolation – disconnects selected conductors from the critical asset.
  • Selective grounding – grounds disconnected conductors.
  • Selective shutdown – disconnects power conductors via independent circuits with programmable delays to provide the ultimate defense against over-voltages, electrical over-stress and lightning surge currents.

Toro CAPB protection system

Automatic lightning protection-by-isolation and/or grounding of field conductors connected to central irrigation controller computer and related hardware.

Features a WAVE Sequencer (included) with fully-assembled-and-tested relay isolation bank, AC Power secondary surge suppressor, RF surge suppressor, and AC over-current protection appropriate for Satellite or Decoder systems.

Designed and completely pre-assembled as a lightning protection bulkhead with metal-enclosed switchgear.
