For this purpose, we will carry out the pertinent studies to determine your needs and be able to perform the installation of lightning protection equipment, guaranteeing the correct protection of your installation and people. Among the facilities for which we offer protection solutions are housing, industry, communications towers, boats, photovoltaic installations, etc.

 

BUILDING PROTECTION

CAN WE AVOID THE LIGHTNING IN OUR BUILDING?

YES, it's possible to give protection to our housing or building and end the concern about the lightning impact. The PDCE lightning rod is responsible of eliminate the electric field by discharging the electrostatic charge accumulated on the ambient, by doing this, we eliminate the potential difference and we avoid the lightning formation.
The nowadays housing have an important number of sensible electronic and electric equipment that are exposed to the damage caused by the lightning impacts. A lightning discharge can cause an important elevation of the ground potential to a very high levels. This potential elevation can reach our installation and all the equipments connected to it, by the grounding of our installation. Furthermore, a lightning strike is associated with a very powerful induced electromagnetic field generated at installation and that seriously affect the equipment (computers, televisions, telephones, intercoms, appliances, etc ...) and existing installations (electrical panels surges, heating, alarms, security cameras, electric motors, etc ...)

 

LIGHTNING RODS FOR INDUSTRY

Lightnings cause lot of damage to the industry due to their impact or secondary effects that can affect directly to the installations. Cause costly losses for the industry, such as infrastructure damage, fire, stop of the production, loss of data, electrical damage, damage to electronic equipment, etc.
It is known the lightning protection technology based on the excitation and capturing the lightning on our structure, via headers into a point or multi-points, which moved all the energy of the beam at our ground. This technology is not exempt from Risks and can’t offer the guarantee and the security that our industry needs. The impact of Lightning in the tip of the collector system, generates electromagnetic pulses that cause inductions in facilities and also a current surge in the installation grounding, causing an elevation of the potential to very high values

IS THERE A LIGHTNING ROD THAT MAY AVOID SUCH PROBLEMS IN THE INDUSTRY?
Exists! There is a new technology in the lightning protection systems called PDCE (PROTECTORS OF ELECTROATMOSPHERIC AND ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS). The PDCE can ensure the effectiveness of 100% protection preventing lightning strikes in almost any type of building and structure through deionization of electrostatic charges.
Thanks to the operation of the new technology of the Protectors of Electroatmospheric and Electromagnetic Fields, we can avoid the problems in the industry such as:  Production Stop, loss of time on repairs of breakdowns, risk of accidents caused by electrical effects, loss of data, damage to computer systems, etc.

 

LIGHTNING RODS FOR BOATS

Storms at sea are one of the most feared by sailors, lightning causes a great name of accidents at sea and in ports. When lightning strikes the mast of a sailboat, the energy seeks the shortest way to reach land by water. In its wake, the lightning current generates effects that destroy electronic equipment, may even cause perforation of the hull that transforms into a waterway. During the split second it takes to download the beam, the entire crew is at risk of electric shock, the effects of which can range from a simple electrostatic discharge, to death by electrocution.
Are known various lightning protection systems, all based on passive ionization, usually finite element pointed or vase-shaped multi-points. These systems, excites, seeking the creation and capture of the beam on the highest point of the vessel.  Unfortunately, these systems can not control the discharge energy of lightning, which can cause electrical effects hurting electronics, communications, electrical part or jeopardize the health of the crew.


CAN WE PROTECT OUR BOAT SAFELY?                                                         
From now on YES, we can avoid the risks. New technology PDCE lightning rod, are designed to reduce the electric field builds up in the atmosphere before the presence of the lightning, its effect reduces the chances of strike in the vessel at 99%. Its working principle is based on deionized air for craft not suffer an electrical effect of high voltage and not excite the creation and capture of lightning, its technical characteristics, make it easier during a storm circulate a stream of very low intensity from the PDCE lightning rod for sacrificial anodes.

 

LIGHTNING ROD FOR COMMUNICATIONS TOWERS

Due to its geographical location, communications towers are usually exposed to receive lightning strikes, which often damage the antennas, electronics and electrical installations, being able to knock out communications structures emissions. As a result of this damage, thousands of users can run out of service until the fault is repaired and communications are restored.
All lightning rod ending in one or more points are in principle the capture and excitement of the lightnings. During the lightning discharge in the lightning rod tower, in more or less side are effects  of electrostatic and electromagnetic pollution affecting the electrical and telecommunications equipment, audiovisual and other sensitive electronics.
For this reason it is recommended for lightning protection a system that is able to give continuity to the services and not jeopardize installations uptake of lightning. The PDCE system is the only lightning rod that doesn't excite the lightning and avoid the impact on the communications tower eliminating the natural electrical field before the ionization process. Because it is based on the elimination of electrostatic charges that accumulate in the environment, the protection system of the PDCE rays can avoid the problems that can easily suffer sensitive equipment such charges and can easily be found on towers communications.

 

LIGHTNING ROD FOR RENEWABLE ENERGIES

Photovoltaic systems are particularly vulnerable due to its geographic location to suffer damage from lightning strikes and associated electromagnetic fields generated by lightning.
These effects can cause stoppages in energy production and generate losses in investments which do not allow payback time established, making that the profitability of the plant be reduced.
Traditional lightning rod systems are based on technology attracting and capturing lightning in order to refer them to the ground. This ensures cause ground potential rise, that through installation of grounding can reach and damage electronic equipment. On the other hand, the impact of lightning has an associated electromagnetic pulse induced in the installation and can affect electronic equipment.  For this reason it is recommended for lightning protection system that is able to give continuity to the services and not jeopardize installations uptake of lightning. The PDCE system is the only lightning rod that doesn't excite the lightning and avoid the lightning strike eliminating the natural electrical field before the ionization process. Because it is based on the elimination of electrostatic charges that accumulate in the environment, the protection system of the PDCE lightning can avoid the problems that can easily suffer photovoltaic panels, sensitive equipment such charges.
