Lightning & Surge Protection System Design
Lighting is the root cause for Many large surge voltages caused by lightning strikes on or close to electrical installation. Even from far distance, lightning currents can cause impermissible surge voltages in conductor loops, through either capacitive, inductive coupling.
The international lightning protection standard IEC 62305 describes The current is coupled into the earthing system, due to the voltage drop at the earthing resistor, half of the lightning current is coupled into the internal installation.
The partial lightning current then divides itself among the entering the building while around 5% enters data cables.
Our new generation lightning rods with electronic early streaming emission (ESE).
Radius of protection up to 100 m (based on emission times of 15 μs, 30 μs, 45 μs
and 60 μs). Complies with standards NF C 17-102:2011, UNE 21186:2011, CTE
ESE electronic technology, unlike passive Faradization systems with air terminals, makes active use of atmospheric gradient to generate ionization in order to increase the height of the lightning impact point above the tip of the rod, thus increasing the volume protected. This facilitates the protection of large areas, simplifying and reducing material and installation costs.
It has evolved from our successful and reliable range of standard lightning rods, which protect more than 30,000 installations worldwide, a fact that bears witness to its performance, quality and warranty and our service.
The new lightning rods exceed the requirements of the new version of standard NF C 17-102 v2011, with the goal of making them more robust, without sacrificing their compact size and with a significant weight reduction.
