GADA Electric tells you the importance of lightning protection testing in autumn

- Oct 21, 2019-

As we all know, although the autumn is bright, but in China is also a high season of lightning, it is very important to conduct lightning inspections (such as surge protectors, lightning rods, etc.) in time. Therefore, lightning protection detection is very necessary in autumn.

First, timely grasp the operation of lightning protection devices

All lightning protection devices (including external lightning protection devices and internal lightning protection devices) have a service life. In addition to the damage caused by normal lightning, they are also affected by human and environmental factors, reducing the effectiveness of lightning protection devices. And shorten the service life. Only through the annual lightning protection test, the parameters of the lightning protection device can be measured, and the real effect of the lightning protection device can be scientifically and objectively evaluated, so that the operation of the lightning protection device can be accurately grasped, and the lightning protection can be achieved. Safety provides a scientific basis.

Second, accurately understand whether the lightning protection device meets the lightning protection requirements

Buildings (structures) will be continuously built, rebuilt or expanded with the needs of managers and users. Buildings that are newly built, rebuilt or expanded may change the lightning protection classification of the building, and the protection level of the lightning protection device will also change. Only through the annual routine lightning protection test can we find out whether the lightning protection device of the newly built, rebuilt or expanded building (structure) is in line with the lightning protection classification of the building (structure), and whether there are hidden dangers of lightning strikes, and it can be fully understood. Whether the lightning protection device of the building (construction) after reconstruction or expansion is standardized, comprehensive and systematic, whether there is any artificial destruction or covering of the lightning protection device.

Third, take timely and effective lightning protection and rectification measures to reduce the safety hazard of lightning

Through the lightning protection test, the comprehensive performance parameters of the lightning protection device can be obtained, and the lightning protection devices can be fully reflected, such as corrosion, deterioration, electrical impediment, etc., and objective and fair rectification opinions are given on aspects that do not meet the requirements of the specification. This can enable the administrator or user of the lightning protection device to take effective lightning protection remedy and corrective measures, effectively reduce the safety hazard of lightning strikes, and ensure the safety of personnel and property.
