The Principle of operation for ESE terminals is to create an upward propagating streamer earlier than conventional air terminals or other objects on the earth. Ese Lightning Protection System does this by collecting and storing ground charge during the initial phase of a thunderstorm development.
Once a thunderstorm begins creating downward step leaders, the ambient electric field intensity in the area of the ESE terminal increases. When this electric field intensifies, it triggers the terminal to release the stored ground charge, forming an upward streamer microseconds earlier than other objects in the immediate area.
This development of an upward streamer earlier in time and space ensures that the ESE Terminal will be target of the developing lightning strike. The selection of the Model, placement, and mounting height above the protected area all factor into formulas calculating the dimensions of the protection area.
The standard protection radius R of the Ese Lightning Arrester is linked (according to NF C 17-102 standard) to T, to the protection levels I, II, III or IV and to the height of the Ese Lightning above the protected structure (H, defined by NF C 17-102 as a minimum of 2 m). The NF C 17-102 standard includes four levels of protection. The protection radii of different models of Ese Lightning Protection System are given in the table. Our experts will suggest the most suitable model after conducting a site survey.
