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.
A surge is an increase in the voltage of the electrical network and It can cause damage to the installation and electronic equipment in your home. In the United States, electric shock claims to insurance companies were estimated to be $909 million. This amount claimed comes from 78,000 users only.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas organizes free online webinars aimed at professionals.
From Aplicaciones Tecnológicas we wish you a Merry Christmas and a great New Year 2020.
There are two relevant data facts to keep in mind when evaluating the danger of lightning in golf courses. Firstly, the annual average of death casualties in golf courses is 13 people worldwide, being the majority due to electrical discharges caused by storms. Secondly, 5% of the total deaths caused by lightning strikes in the US occur in golf courses.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, a company specialized in lightning protection systems, offers you for free the next online webinars about Apliweld® Secure+, the safest exothermic welding in the market. Besides, there are also free online webinars about ATSTORM®, the thunderstorm detection system for labour risk prevention.
Between 18th and 22nd November the group meetings of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) took place in Milan (Italy). These are responsible for the review of the international regulation of lightning protection IEC 62305. This regulation review was performed for its four parts (General Principles, Risk management, Physical Damage to Structures and Life hazards, Electrical and Electronic Systems in Structures). In addition, a general assembly of IEC Group 81 (Lightning Protection) was held.
A surge is a voltage increase in the electrical network measured between two conductors which can cause damage to the installation and electrical equipment. It can be of two types: transient and permanent.
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.
