With almost two decades of successful field application, the ERITECH® SYSTEM 3000 was enhanced in 2003 with an optimized ERITECH® DYNASPHERE MKIV air terminal, ERITECH® ERICORE cable system and supporting design software for a greater protection level. These advancements are a result of research, involving long-term field studies, laboratory testing using some of the largest outdoor test laboratories, and countless research study programs including joint ventures with accomplished scientists in the field, resulting in some of the most up-to-date published technical papers and journals.

The ERITECH SYSTEM 3000 has evolved from this research activity, with earlier versions of the ERITECH SYSTEM 3000 providing a building block for the latest advancements through extensive field studies, leading edge indoor and outdoor high voltage testing and supported by computer modeling research.

ERICO is involved in the lightning protection industry in many countries around the world and hence acknowledges the diverse protection methods that exist today.

The ERITECH SYSTEM 3000 integrated direct strike protection system provides protection for structures, buildings and their occupants against the effects of direct lightning strikes.

How the ERITECH DYNASPHERE D/SMKIV-SS Works
Modern research and recording methods have led to a better understanding of the lightning discharge process, and various breakthroughs have been achieved in the simulation of lightning electric-field conditions. ERICO has been one of the leaders in this field of research, employing a combination of computer modeling, field studies, natural and rocket triggered testing and HV laboratory testing techniques. A number of technical research papers have resulted from this work.

The ERITECH DYNASPHERE has been designed to meet all of the criteria necessary for the controlled emission of a streamer. The concept of controlled is important because it is not effective to launch a streamer too early – the ambient field will not be large enough to convert the streamer to a leader and so the streamer will cease to propagate.

The characteristics of an optimum air terminal are:

1. Minimal pre-strike corona / space charge
2. Streamers released only when the ambient electric field can sustain leader initiation and propagation

The ERITECH DYNASPHERE D/SMKIV-SS has been developed with these two concepts in mind.

System 2000 Cable System

System 2000 Brochure

 

ERICO ®, with its 25 years of experience in the development of a diverse range of lightning protection solutions, solves the problem of required separation distances and sideflash to critical rooftop equipment with the ERITECH® Isolated Downconductor. By applying a high performance insulation around the downconductor, the same isolation as 1000 mm of air separation can be provided. The advantage is that this downconductor can be mounted directly on the mast or structure to be protected – without electrification!

Features

Since ERICO® offered its first isolated downconductor, thousands of buildings have proven this concept. The pioneering use of semi-conductive external outer sheath to bond to the structure and control cable break down was a key to success. The original implementation (ERITECH® ERICORE) was a screened cable version designed for low impedance, this allowed the use of very long cable lengths. The latest ERITECH® Isolated Downconductor customizes this development by offering a lower cost cable targeted at the typical shorter installation requirements of the telecommunication industry. The cable is designed, tested and applied to meet the requirements of IEC 62305 lightning protection standards.

Applications

Implementation of the ERITECH® Isolated Downconductor system is based on two sections of the IEC 62305-3 standard (Protection Against Lightning – Part 3: Physical damage to structures and life hazard). For correct installation the system must be designed and installed in accordance with these requirements:

Step 1

Determine the required height of the air terminal to provide protection according to IEC 62305 or NFPA780. The required lightning protection level can be determined by IEC 62035-2 Risk Assessment, or simply using LPL I for maximum protection. Using this information the designer should determine the required minimum height of the air terminal tip above the top of mast/items to be protected. (Note: ERITECH Isolated Downconductor mast requires a minimum clearance distance of 2 m).

Step 2

Determine the length of downconductor and selected lightning protection level so the separation distance (IEC 62305-3 Section 6.3 or NFPA780 Section 4.21) does not exceed 1000 mm.

Step 3

Meet ERICO’s mounting and installation requirements and interconnect to a standard compliant grounding or lightning protection system.

If the maximum cable limitations above can not be adhered to, then it is possible to use two parallel downconductors. The ISODUAL adapter allows a second isolated downconductor to be connected to the air terminal. The second ISODC Downconductor is mounted externally to the Isolated Mast and fixed with UV stable non conductive cable ties.
