Advanced technology has changed lightning protection systems for safety and infrastructure protection. TAKO, founded in 1979, has led to the creation of new ways to shield buildings and people from natural disasters. This blog post explores one of TAKO’s top innovations: MS IEC 62305 Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection Systems.

Setting the Standard for Lightning Protection

MS IEC 62305 standard

The standard NF C 17-102 2011 is an international standard regulating the application of Early Streamer Emission (ESE) systems. The standard safeguards buildings, structures, and open spaces against lightning strikes. It encompasses guidelines for installation and specifications for testing to verify protection effectiveness.

Similarly, in Malaysia, we have the MS IEC 62305. The MS IEC 62305 standard is crucial for designing, installing, and maintaining lightning protection systems. Early Streamer Emission (ESE) technology is a significant part of this standard. ESE plays an important role in shielding buildings and people from lightning’s severe impacts.

MS IEC 62305 lays the groundwork for comprehensive regulations against lightning strikes. The standard provides a systematic method. It assesses the risk of lightning strikes, establishes protective measures, and implements effective solutions. These actions minimize harm and ensure safety for occupants.

What are TAKO's Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection Systems?

TAKO’s Early Streamer Emission (ESE) Lightning Protection Systems include active ESE Lightning Arrestors. They aim to reduce the harm caused by the high voltage lightning strikes to people and buildings. These devices generate an upward leader faster and more efficiently than traditional lightning rods, enhancing overall lightning protection effectiveness.

The ESE system comprises air terminals, down conductors, and grounding systems. During a thunderstorm, the air terminals produce an upward streamer before anything else nearby. It cut down the time needed to intercept the lightning strike.

Harnessing Early Streamer Emission (ESE) Technology

We employ cutting-edge ionization methods in our Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection Systems. This proactive approach aims to prevent lightning strikes from becoming too powerful. By doing so, we can reduce the impact of electrical discharges on protected structures.

  • How early streamer emission lightning arrester works?

    An early streamer emission (ESE) lightning arrester releases a streamer. The streamer will ionize nearby air molecules, creating a conductive path for lightning to follow. This increases the radius of protection around the structure.

  • What is the purpose of the lightning protection system?

    A lightning protection system, like those offered by TAKO since 1979, aims to safeguard people and buildings. These systems will protect lives and properties from lightning strikes by guiding electrical energy safely into the ground.

  • What is the function of early streamer emission?

    Early streamer emission (ESE) technology enhances lightning protection by creating an ionized path for lightning to follow. It increases the chance of interception and redirection.

  • How effective are lightning protection systems?

    Lightning protection systems, particularly those utilizing advanced technologies like TAKO's since 1979, can significantly reduce the risks associated with lightning strikes. These carefully designed and strategically placed systems efficiently dissipate, conduct, and intercept the electrical energy generated by lightning strikes. It effectively safeguards people, property, and equipment from potential harm.
