Biral lightning warning system strikes a cord with golf industry

Meteorological equipment specialists Biral is gaining traction in the golf industry following the launch of its BTD-200 standalone lightning warning system last autumn.

Since making its debut at Met Tech last year, the BTD-200 system has grown in popularity across a number of industries, and broke into the golf market earlier this year at the 2019 Golf Industry Show in San Diego.

The BTD-200 lightning warning system gives advanced warning of overhead lightning risk using its professional-grade detection system which is designed for leisure, sports and outdoor pursuits. This includes golf courses; university and school sports facilities; sports stadiums; theme parks and concert venues.

The BTD-200 has been developed from the Biral range of professional aviation-grade lightning detection systems. It reliably detects the presence of all forms of lightning out to a range of 35km (22 miles) from the sensor. Designed to be installed and set up by non-technical staff, it comes with a power supply and the essential PC application ‘Lightning Works’, for monitoring and warning personnel of approaching thunderstorms.

Biral has recently become a member of the Golf Club Managers’ Association, and will be attending its biennial conference at DeVere Cotswold Water Park from November 10-12.  The company will also be attending BTME at Harrogate from January 21-23, and is returning to the Golf Industry Show in 2020 in Orlando, also in January, to continue promoting the BTD-200 to industry experts.
