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.
The new European Normative EN 50550, regulating the protection against transient and power frequency overvoltages, has recently been published. The mentioned standard defines as power frequency overvoltages (POP) those whose duration is relatively long (several cycles) and may cause damages to the installation and to the electrical equipment.
Risk assessment according to lightning protection standards, both for ESE air terminals (NF-C 17102; UNE 21186/1M) and for Franklin rods and meshed conductors (IEC-EN 62305), requires a detailed knowledge of the structure to be protected. Therefore, the work of and expert is recommended.
