INSULATED LIGHTNING CONDUCTOR

INTRODUCTION

Insulated Lightning Conductor is ideal for use where there is insufficient roof space to install Conventional and Free-Standing Masts/Air Terminals while maintaining the required separation distance from the object being protected.

Insulated Lightning Conductor Air Terminals are constructed from:

  • Aluminium interception Air Terminal/Rod 0.5m to 1m
  • GRP mast section varying from 2m to 3m for wall fixing installations and 1.5m

when used with a stainless steel Mast and Base

  • Stainless steel Mast section to give mast height and supporting strength
  • Stainless steel Base

When used in conjunction with Kingsmill Insulated Lightning Conductor cable, the Air Terminal can be placed closer to objects that require protection. The cable simulates a separation distance of ≤0.75m in air and ≥1.5m in solid material.

Kingsmill Insulated Lightning Conductor cable is used for maintaining separation distance between the electrically conductive parts of the structure (to be protected) and the Lightning Protection System.

LIGHTNING CONDUCTOR CABLE

Kingsmill Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable is used for maintaining the separation distance between electrically conductive parts of the structure to be protected and the Lightning Protection System and is in accordance with IEC EN 62305-3.

ACCESSORIES

Equipotential Bonding Strap

Equipotential Bonding Strap

For equipotential connections to pipe work.

Material:

Stainless Steel

 

There can be an electromagnetic field around the cable despite its insulation.

Although the cable is insulated, the electromagnetic field cannot be completely isolated. By using the Equipotential Bonding Strap we ensure that the voltage charge is kept within tolerable limits. The connection from equipotential bond to earth should be by the shortest route, preferably connected to an equipotential bonding bar, building reinforcing (if connected to a foundation electrode) or to the housings of securely earthed metal elements. This connection can be via 3.5mm² cable.

Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable Connection Ring

Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable Connection Ring

The Connection Ring connects several cables to the Air Terminal Mast, where more than one cable is required to meet separation distance requirements. The Connection Ring is fixed at the top of the Interception Mast (over the aluminium Air Rod section).

Material:

Aluminium
