PRODUCT Lightning rod with ESE (Early Streamer Emission) system.
OPERATION The specific function of TYTECH® TYB lightning rod is producing an upward stream of ionized particles pointed to clouds that will channel the eventual electrical discharge from its origin.
There is a different potential between the discharger (that has the same potential than the air around it) and both the air terminal tip and the deflection ensemble (they have the same potenital than earth). This difference increases as atmospheric potential becomes higher because of the imminent lightning stroke.
The knowledge of this value allows finally to select the most appropriate lightning rod model taking into account the characteristics of the structure we want to protect.
CHARACTERISTICS & BENEFITS -100% of efficacy in discharge capture. -High level of protection. -Electric continulty guaranteed. The device doesn't offer any resistance to discharge conduction. -Lightning rod without electrical components. Maxim durability guaranteed. -TYTECH® TYB lightning rod preserves its initial properites after each discharge. -Because it contains no electronic elements, there are no replaceable parts. -It doesn't need external power supply. -Operation guaranteed in any atmospheric condition.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS The capture terminal of TYTECH® TYB lightning rod fits the following technical specifications: -It has a double ESE (Early Streamer Emission) system: -A early streamer devcie that produces the upward emission. -An electro atmospheric condenser. -An atmospheric accelerator. -An insulation system -An external structure made from stainless steel. -Early Streamer Emission system made from stainless steel and Epoxy resin. Its effective operaton in any atmospheric condition and environment.
INSTALLATION The capture terminal of TYTECH® TYB lightning rod should take into account the following: -The point of the lightning rod should be situated, at lest two meters above the hightest building to be protected. -For its installation on a mast, the corresponding head-mast adapter is needed for the lightning rod. -The cabling of the covers should be protected against surges and connect to ground the metallic structures present within the safety zone. -The lightning rod should be connected to a grounding point by way of one of various conducting cables which will go down, whenever possible, the exterior of the construction with the shortest and straight possible trajectory. -The earth termination systems, whose resistance are not to surpass 10 ohms, should guarantee the most rapid possible dispersion of the lightning current dishcarge.
