Present practices for
lightning protection uses rods on top of building connected by a
faraday cage to the ground. Such systems wait for the lightning
to strike one of the rods to get grounded. Due to the velocity
and undefined path, safety provided by this system is
ineffective and Unreliable.
NF C 17 102 which is the national French code for lightning
detailed the concept of zone base lightning protection system.
M/S. DUVAL MESSIEN Has developed Generation 3 lightning
protection system, which, is intelligent, synchronizable and can
be remotely monitored by a hand held device. This system has 99
% reliability factor and efficiency.
