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.
Global warming has become one of the most important concerns in society. Therefore, the use of renewable energies which do not produce polluting emissions or greenhouse gases, is booming.
Lightning strikes are powerful atmospheric discharges. Even though they are natural phenomena, they can pose great risk when they strike on Earth due to their power. In the residential sector, lightning can have important consequences among which fires are included.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, leader in lightning protection, offers free online courses on two of its products: the exothermic welding Apliweld® Secure+ and the ATSTORM® lightning early warning system. During March and April thirteen courses aimed at professionals in the sector will be held.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas adds new accessories to the Apliweld® Secure+ system. The new car charger for the electronic starting device and the mould accessory increase the range of products of the most efficient and secure welding system in the market.
Thunderstorms are unavoidable natural phenomena that pose serious threats to goods, services, environment and even cause death to people. The mining industry is really vulnerable to these meteorological events due to the fact its operations take place in open areas and the activities involve the use of heavy equipment and the handling and storage of flammable materials, which increases the risk for employees (Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 2016).
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, leader in lightning protection systems, is organizing free online courses on the exothermic welding system Apliweld® Secure+ and on ATSTORM, a lightning warning system aimed at professionals in the sector. During February and March we will be holding eleven webinars on different topics.
A lightning warning system is a device which warns of lightning strike risk in areas that need to be protected against the effect of atmospheric electrical discharges. ATSTORM is an expert system for storm detection developed by Aplicaciones Tecnológicas which is able to provide local early warnings.
A lightning strike is a natural event which significantly affects all outdoor activities and can pose a risk if the right preventive measures are not considered.
The data obtained by different institutions corroborates the high frequency of lightning strikes in sports events. According to the information gathered between 2006 and 2013 by The United States meteorological service (NOOA), 14% of deaths caused by lightning strikes happened during outdoor sports and leisure activities.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas offers free online webinars for professionals in the sector. If you want to participate in these training sessions, choose the course organized in your country and check the schedule.
