EARLY STREAMER EMISSION LIGHTNING ROD
INGESCO ESE LIGHTNING ROD

PRODUCT


INGESCO ESE lightning rod, in compliance with UNE 21186 and NF C-17 102 standards.

HOW IT WORKS?


The specific purpose of the INGESCO lightning rod is to produce ionization directed at the cloud, so that any possible electrical discharge can be channelled from the very beginning. Between the exciter set, which has the same potential as the surrounding air, and on the other hand, the point and the deflector set, which are both at earth potential, a potential difference is stablished. This potential difference will be greater, the higher the atmospheric potential gradient is, and consequently, when the lightning formation is most likely.

PROTECTION LEVELS


UNE 21186 and NF C-17 102 standards provide an evaluating method, as a result of several studies of lightning
protection systems. It compares the early streamer time ( t) induced by an INGESCO ESE lightning rod, to a simple
Franklin type lightning rod in the same environmental and placement test conditions.


A relationship between time, propagation speed and, in consequence, the stroke distance and the protection zone,
is obtained in determining the value.


The evaluation of the risk of being struck and the structure's protection needs is obtaining following the Appendix B of the standards mentioned above. likely.
