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 thunderstorm is manifested by a sudden discharge of electricity, which we perceive by an intense and fleeting glow, commonly known as lightning or lightning strike, and by a powerful sound, thunder.
The Online Course of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas on Lightning Protection provides the foundations, method and practical cases so that architects, engineers, electrical installers, technical personnel of companies or professionals related to this sector can design professional lightning protection systems based on the main international regulations.
From Aplicaciones Tecnológicas we inform you that, following the state of alarm and the new measures laid out by the Government of Spain to deal with Covid-19, we want to communicate that all our commercial team, technicians and administration staff are still operating and working in our usual hours from home office, being able to contact us by the same means as always.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of United States details in its report on “safety in the construction industry” that precautions should be taken to avoid the danger of lightning to workers. In Great Britain alone, according to issue Nº. 401 of The International Journal of Meteorology, reports for over the past 30 years show work-related activities accounted for 15% of the total of deaths due to electrical discharges.
Lightning bolts are powerful atmospheric electrical discharges that pose a great danger depending on where they strike. Without proper protection and prevention, these discharges are a risk to people, animals, buildings, and electrical / electronic equipment.
In order to prevent the effects of this natural phenomenon, the UNE-EN IEC 62793 standard establishes an application guide to determine the need or not for a thunderstorm detection system, as well as the types of detectors that exist for it.
From Aplicaciones Tecnológicas we inform you that, due to the crisis produced by Covid-19, we have been implementing preventive and organizational measures during previous weeks and preparing our company to be able to continue offering our products and services to our customers.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas offers you the upcoming free online webinars for professionals in March and April 2020.
Registration will be free and there is limited space. Do not miss the opportunity to learn about the latest news in the sector from the hand of specialized technicians.
The frequency inverters are sophisticated equipment with microcontroller technology. For this reason, they are very sensitive to voltage transients and therefore suffer a lot of damage.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas SA has won the award for the best solution in occupational risk prevention for its ATSTORM® system, a local warning system for the prevention of thunderstorms. This award has been granted by the FSL magazine, a specialized publication on occupational risk prevention and safety and health at work.
