Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) based on IS requirements
Protecting a building against the direct and indirect effects of lightning is important for the safety of people and equipment in the building. Rather it is a mandatory requirement in several countries for industrial/commercial and multi-storeyed residential buildings
EMC compatible buildings for installation of Electronic Equipment.
The protecting electronic equipment in buildings against Electro-Magnetic Pulses (EMP) has become important due to the increased use of sensitive electronic systems.
Earthing system for HV / EHV substations, Telecommunication installations, Signaling installations
Effective earthing is necessary for safety purposes as well as functional purpose.
Foundation Earthing, Ring Earthing, Structural Earthing and Earth Mat
Building with electronic installations need either foundation earth or ring earth for the reliable operation of the installation as strongly recommended in IEC 62305-3.
Internal Lightning Protection, Shielding measures for buildings to protect electronic installations, Bonding of metal installations in building, Shielding and Screening of cables / wires
The internal LPS avoids the occurrence of dangerous flashover inside the structure
SPM for protection of electronic equipments against Lightning and EM Interferences
SPM consisting of spatial shields and/or shielded lines, combined with shielded equipment enclosures ensures the protection of sensitive equipment against conducted and radiated EM effects Coordinated
Protection measures for the Electrical / Data / Signaling / Instrumentation systems
Sensitive electronic equipment often fails predominantly due to steady-state error or transient error. Harmonics belongs to steady-state error and surges are due to transient errors
SPD’s are voltage operated devices and the installation procedures are different from that of MCBs
Evaluation of Internal and External Lightning protection system for Insurance companies
Equipment failures in industries as well as commercial establishments are quite common due to various reasons including lightning.
Compatibility and Conformity check of Electronic Installation and Equipment for various IEC / EN / CISPER Standards
Electronic equipment manufacturers often find difficulties for their equipment in meeting the mandatory EM emission and susceptibility
Lightning Risk Assessment and Management as per IS IEC 62305-2
Before proceeding with the detailed design of a lightning protecting system, it is essential to find out whether the structure needs protection or not
