The Lightning Protection Module protects the system transmitter for in-ground systems. If lightning strikes near the boundary wire, the lightning can go back through the wire and damage the control box. The Lightning Protection Module connects to the boundary wire and acts like a fuse, shorting out the connection before the lightning gets through and damages the control box.
Lightning protection is advisable in areas that have a high risk of lightning strikes or sizeable installations (over 2 acres).
