PDCE 100 PLUS - Technology to prevent falling from rays


TECNO-FERRAN investigates possible lightning protection solutions on the market, and after studying various technologies, principles of operation and efficiency, specializes in the new PDCE lightning rod system, an innovative new technology.

Passive pickup system of electrostatic currents in time, which are grounded, whose principle of operation is based on balancing or compensating for the existing variable electric field in its environment, avoiding that the upstream plotter is generated in the PDCE100PLUS and in the structure that protects (Do not confuse with the PDCE Parasitic system with electronic positioning device, lightning arresters system)

Protection effectiveness
100% reduction of impact of direct rays in the protected structure. On indirect effects on external induced surges in the protected structure, the PDCE100 behaves as a thermal fuse, absorbing part of the lightning energy in heat by fusion of its components.

Electromagnetic Protector
Unique and effective system for the protection of external electromagnetic pulses (minimizes them between 60% and 90%).

All kinds of structures on land and sea. Unique and effective system for the protection of structures within fire and explosion risk (ATEX) environments and / or located in zones of high risk of lightning (telecommunications towers, radars, structures in mountain areas, etc.)

Maximum working voltage without lightning discharge
705,000 volts at one meter, according to high voltage laboratory tests.

This lightning rod differs from other systems because it works giving prevention, safety and protection for people, animals and installations, eliminating direct lightning strike and therefore electrical hazards, direct and indirect electromagnetic effects and currents lightning discharge on the facility.


The new technology allows creating a balanced electrical environment between the earth and the structure to be protected. During the storm a difference of potential appears between the cloud and the earth (loads) that focus on the most predominant points on land. The PDCE transform this charges in a small current leaking through the arrester cable to the ground.


The PDCE is a collector electrode unpolarized and passive, used for protect any type of structure, both on land and at sea.
