The Definition of The Lightning
The vocabulary definition of the lightning is as follows:
The electrical discharge that occurs between earth and air, is felt by thunder and a strong light. The electric load cells are formed in the clouds. As
soon as load cells passes over the low air resistance, the electrical discharge occurs and the loop is completed. Hence lightning is safely
earthed. The Lightning Protection Methods as per the statistic, Every minute, more than 1,900 lightning flashes fall over the earth's surface.
Besides the prevention methods against lightning, there are also methods to safeguard public and industrial places.
The external protection system
are used for this purpose and there are 3 major types, as mentioned below :
1. Lightning Conductor Systems (ESE conductors, Radioactive conductors, etc)
2. Faraday Cage Systems
3. Franklin Rod Systems
- The Protector is an ESE type of 'active'lightning conductor that provides zonal protection in accordance with standard NFC 17 102.
- The Protector is a sturdy robust device made of 304 L stainless steel.
- It is protected against corrosion and needs no maintenance.
- Needs no external power source.
- Compact and easy to install.
- Warranty for 2 years.
- Tested and certified by ODTU University Laboratories in Turkey (Europe) & CPRI India.
- Large multistoried / high rise residential complexes and housing colonies. A single Protector can cover several blocks.
- Large multistoried / high-rise office complexes, multiplexes, shopping malls, etc.
- Modern buildings housing IT offices, BPO’s and concentration of sensitive electronic and / or telecom equipment.
- Factories having plc based controls for critical plant and machinery
- Hospitals, cinema halls, museums, old monuments, schools, etc.
- Larger Protection Radius
- Non Radioactive
- Environmentally safe
- Very easy assembly
- Weather proof device
- Lightning strike conductor
LIGHTNING STRIKE COUNTER :
- Lightning Strike Counter is also installed at the base of the down conductor to record direct lightning strikes.
- The counters have recorded some direct strikes since their installation.
