Organisations offering building services Electrical engineers Lighting conductors Design consultants Building site inspectors Contractors or managers of maintenance sites Why BSI? How can I reduce the grid ground potential rise without increasing the physical area of my site? It just makes no sense when you are trying to protect a building and its occupants, to intentionally force lighting energy into the structure.
Search all products by. It is also far more dangerous for Human Safety. If you should have any questions or concerns, iex do not hesitate to contact one of our engineers during regular business hours California time, we will be glad to speak with you about your project, free of charge.
General principles BS EN But if not us, please get someone with the proper engineering software and expertise to analyze these critical parameters. Feel free to 62305- a question about electrical grounding or electrical engineering. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. Can the lightning protection system components be painted and still be recertified?

Concrete columns that are used for down conductors must be tested at 0. By defining these safety measures, this standard helps you to minimise damage, invest in the right electrical protection equipment and maximise hazard prevention in buildings. Copper is at least 12 times more conductive than steel, and times less magnetic.
BS EN outlines all aspects of internal and external lighting protection systems, including class, design and the continuity of steelwork in reinforced concrete structures. Does Nigeria have an earthing standards like other countries do? This upgraded edition includes significant technical changes with regard to lighting protection systems.

Customers who bought this iwc also bought BS EN We recommend copper down conductors routed to a buried ground ring that circumnavigates the entire perimeter of the structure with grounding electrodes capable of handling the lighting current.
BS EN Protection against lightning. Physical damage to structures and life hazard
The scope includes lighting components in general, and different materials and dimensions. Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance. Who should buy it? Electrical and electronic systems within structures. Surge and climatic protection, earthing and electrical safety in general are also included at no extra cost. While the standard does not specifically 62350-3 the use of building steel as a down conductor, it does have requirements to avoid ferrous materials for grounding and has the proximity issue already 623305-3.

Is it possible to consider using the telecom tower itself as a conductive metal part down converterand ignore using popular down converter conductor and still have a reliable protection against lightning? If you do choose to use your building structural supports as lightning down conductors, this standard from the BS EN You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or This could quite easily be interpreted as negating the use of building steel in the facilities Lighting Protection System LPS.
Dommages physiques sur les structures et risques humains Title in German Blitzschutz.
Not only does directing the lightning energy 622305-3 the building generate significant electromagnetic, harmonic, and transient noise that is harmful to electronics, but the massive current can also damage the concrete foundations due to the heat and steam that is generated. Often, additional grounding is required that exceeds the listed requirements in the standard. Additionally, the proposed grounding system should be studied and analyzed using computer modeling systems.
Especially in the case of a data center like yours. Is it safe to use structural steel as a down conductor for a Lightning Protection System 6230-53 a school? How does it work?
This part of EN sets out all the requirements needed to protect buildings and structures against physical damage by implementing a lighting protection system Ieec.
