IEC 62561-6:2018 specifies the requirements and tests for devices intended to count the number of lightning strikes based on the current flowing in a conductor. This conductor may be part of a lightning protection system (LPS) or connected to an SPD installation or other conductors, which are not intended to conduct a significant portion of lightning currents.
LSCs may also be suitable for use in hazardous atmospheres and there are therefore extra requirements necessary for the components to be...

IEC/TR 62713:2013 introduces lightning to the layman, noting the right action in the presence of thunderstorms, as well as protective measures against lightning. It also contributes to the prevention of lightning injuries and damages. It should be noted that so far there are no means to avoid lightning. However, by following some elementary rules, people can be protected against its deleterious effects.
