Title:

Protect Your Facility from Direct Strikes with LEC’s Lightning Protection Rod

Description:

Lightning protection rods do not prevent lightning, but instead essentially “collect” it. They attract strikes and convey the energy to the ground rather than to the building or structure that it is protecting. The complete lightning protection system includes; lightning rods, conductor cables, ground electrodes, utility bonding clamps DAS protection as needed and surge protection. Our lightning protection rod is engineered to integrate with any building, rig, platform, tower, tank, stack, and other industrial structures.

  • A lightning protection rod is an external
    terminal installed in a building or structure.
  • Controlling electrical energy changed the course
    of civilization. Among many other discoveries,
    the lightning rod represents a fundamental
    milestone. Benjamin Franklins idea allowed
    attracting lightning bolts to points that were
    not dangerous and aims to attract the lightning
    to a controlled point of impact and prevent it
    from striking an unwanted area or people.
  • The original lightning protection rod is a metal
    bar with a copper tip the conduction line also
    has a copper and an underground dissipater.

How it works
  • Lightning rods are metal rods attached to the
    roof of a building the rod is then attached to
    either a large piece of copper or an aluminum
    wire which is connected to a conductive grid
    buried nearby in the ground. They provide a safe
    and low-resistance path for lightning to the
    ground that can be used to conduct the enormous
    electrical currents when lightning strikes occur.
  • Lightning protection rods do not prevent
    lightning, but instead essentially collect it.
    They attract strikes and convey the energy to the
    ground rather than to the building or structure
    that it is protecting.
  • More than two and a half centuries have passed,
    the lightning rod still persists however they
    have undergone important revisions, including one
    that takes the prevention approach that Franklin
    originally envisioned.

A new beginning
  • Charge Transfer Systems (CTS), such as LECs
    Dissipation Array System (DAS) work to stop the
    strike from forming within a predetermined zone.
    Donald Zipse, a top scientist and researcher from
    the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
    Engineers (IEEE), Life Fellow states,
  • Proof of lightning rods effectiveness lies
    mainly in empirical and anecdotal evidence. CTS
    technology, however, is based on existing
    electrical and physical formulas and mathematical
    basics. LECs patented charge transfer technology
    is a distinct split from Franklin rods.
  • While lightning rods help protect a structure and
    all occupants from a direct strike, a complete
    lightning protection system, including utility
    bonding, proper grounding, and surge protection
    help prevent harmful electrical surges and
    possible fires caused by lightning entering a
    structure via wire and pipes. The complete
    lightning protection system includes lightning
    rods, conductor cables, ground electrodes,
    utility bonding clamps (for water pipes,
    sprinkler, gas and/or oil pipes) DAS protection
    as needed and surge protection.
  • Our lightning protection rod is engineered to
    integrate with any building, rig, platform,
    tower, tank, stack, and other industrial
    structures.
