Lightning Protection
Did you know lightning causes more than $5 billion property damages each year? Lightning is a dangerous natural process. It is one of the leading cause of weather related deaths worldwide. A thunderstorm produced by lightning and thunder together can cause considerable damage. You can protect your business and home from lightning strikes by installing an effective and adequate lightning protection system.
In an outdated lightning protection system, electrical charge is diverted to a less damaging path to ground and is stored through electrical rods. This old method can cause considerable damage to electrical appliance, downtime and loss of product to companies. The team of Lightning Eliminators came up with the latest technology of Charge Transfer System (CTS). It is a system planned to avoid a lightning strike from occurring within a protected zone or area.
You must be wondering how this state of the art patented technology by Lightning Eliminators & Consultants, Inc. (LEC) works? Let us find out a basic layout of a lightning protection system. The Charge Transfer System (CTS) ismostly consists of these assemblies:
• One or more Ionizer: The CTS gathers the induced current developed by thunderstorm clouds from a selected threatened area on the ground then transfers this charge through the ionizer into the nearby air. The ionizers offer a medium for point discharge to occur.
• Down Conductors: At least two down conductors are placed in a structure. The down conductors provide the electrical connection between the charge collector and the ionizers.
• Charge Collectors: The charge collector is an interconnected network of grounding electrodes and conductor developed to collect and conduit electrical charge to the ionizers.
Lightning Protection Design is a crucial component in ensuring the best lightning protection is installed to protect your structure from lightning. The lightning protection systems must be risk assessed and should be designed to comply with current standards.
