Lightning Protection

When creating lightning protection, various standards must be taken into account

The most important European standards by which components for lightning protection are designed and manufactured by OBO Bettermann are the corresponding European standards, which are valid in Serbia:

Obo Bettermann Logo· IEC 62305-1:2006 Lightning protection—part 1: Basic principles

· IEC 62305-1:2006 Lightning protection— part 2: Risk management

· IEC 62305-1:2006 Lightning protection— part 3: Protection of objects and people

· IEC 62305-1:2006 Lightning protection— part 4: Protection of electrical and electronic systems within structures

The lightning protection offered by OBO complies fully with these standards. The task of a lightning protection system is to intercept all atmospheric discharges that could get into the building. Discharges must be intercepted at the point of impact, must be diverted to the ground and electricity must be absorbed in the ground.

The idea is to prevent thermal, mechanical or electrical effects that cause damage to objects that should be protected or pose a danger to humans through contact or step voltages in buildings.

As for the materials that are recommended for making external lightning protection lines, these are hot-dip galvanized steel, stainless steel, copper and aluminium.

Our recommendation is to use aluminium lightning protection for several reasons:

· Best price

· Round cross-section of conductors allowing easy manipulation

· Can be combined with almost all other materials

In Menden, OBO Bettermann headquarters was established in 1995” BET” (technology centre for testing electromagnetic compatibility and lightning protection), which operates as an independent institute and is engaged in the development and testing of elements of an external lightning protection system, grounding materials, elements for potential equalization and surge arresters.

When it comes to external lightning protection, their function is tested in accordance with DIN EN 50164-1, Requirements for connection components “. Only such a proven and tested components have found their place in the production program of OBO Bettermann.

Given that” BET” is an independent institute, these services are provided to anyone who wants to test the equipment in the field of a lightning protection or to test it for electromagnetic compatibility.
