Protection from lightning damage is a major consideration for most installations. A typical lightning strike event involves currents of around 10,000 to 50,000 amperes with a 10% to 90% risetime of between 1 and 10 microseconds. Thus, the peak voltages involved are usually determined more by the inductive reactance than by the D.C. resistance of the lightning current’s path to ground. To protect equipment and living creatures, we need to keep them from becoming a conductive path for lightning currents by keeping everything in their immediate environment at nearly the same electrical potential.
TransTechnical Solutions offers a wide range of Lightning Protection Systems to our customers to suit their needs.
