We want to keep you informed about all the news related to Lightning Protection Systems (lightning rods, overvoltage protection and thunderstorm detectors) standard’s updates, specific training and workshops held at Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, as well as any application and download we develop in our company.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas offers free online courses for professionals in the sector. If you want to participate in these training sessions, choose the organized course in your country and check your time zone. All our online webinars are free but places are limited.
Photovoltaic power plants are always located in huge and isolated areas or on roofs due to their functions. They are high-cost equipment and when damaged can cause losses to energy supply, especially if they are connected to the distribution network. Its operation is controlled by sensitive electronic devices that can be highly damaged by transient surges. Therefore, from the point of view of lightning protection they are high-risks installations.
The ATLAN series surge protectors are especially designed to prevent data transfer failures between different pieces of equipment within a network. They protect the electronic circuit inputs of network cards against damage caused by surges.
It is a capture system that is intended to intercept the atmospheric electric discharge to land. Any capture system (lightining rod) should meet the standards or laws that are apply to it, both national and international. (mainly standards UNE 21.186, NFC 17.102, Technical Building Code SUA8, Series IEC/EN 62.305 and IEC/EN 62.561).
A new international regulation, IEC 63052:2019, was published Last August 2019. It regulates the quality, safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements for protectors against permanent or temporary overvoltages, also known by their acronym POP (Power Overvoltage Protectors).
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, leader in lightning protection systems, is organizing free online courses aimed at professionals. During the coming months of October and November 2019, free online courses will be held about two of its solutions: ATSTORM®, a thunderstorm detection system for labour risk prevention, and Apliweld® Secure+, an exothermic welding system in tablet format with remote electronic ignition.
Maracaibo’s Lake (Venezuela) is nowadays, according to the latest study by NASA, the place where most lightning falls per square kilometer. According to data reached by Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), was concluded that in this area there can be formed around 279 thunderstorms a year.
The new AT-3503 Power Supply Tester of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas is responsible for monitoring and detecting dangerous voltages, network frequency variations as well as increases in the resistance of the earth loop of an installation. The line tester detects any network anomaly by acting through its dry contact relays.
The free online courses offered by Aplicaciones Tecnológicas are aimed at professionals in the sector and will take place during September and October. Registration is free and there is limited space. Do not miss the chance to comfortably learn about the latest innovations in the sector with great impact on the prevention of occupational risks wherever you are.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas products meet the most important lightning protection standards.
Several standards establish the requirements for lightning and surge protection systems. Below, we summarize the most relevant:
