Is it possible to protect your industrial electronics from lightning damage? Often
Is the lightning damage to electronics repairable? Sometimes.
So far there is no equipment, technology or method that can change the weather to prevent the occurrence of lightning. Buildings, devices, wiring and humans or animals can be damaged by lightning no matter whether it strikes directly or indirectly.
Packing up to 100 million volts of electricity, lightning's destructive electricity can explode brick, ignite roofs, sidewalls, or framing, and cause operational breakdown and degradation that induces harmful electrical surges that can destroy installations and assets. To prevent this kind of damage to a structure, a complete lightning protection system is the best way to dissipate the dangerous electrical discharge. This system is different than the surge protectors you plug in for computers and other electronics. Surge protectors will not protect your equipment from a lightning strike, only against electrical line surges.
The total impact on businesses increases further still when considering the costs of a lightning damage to small and medium sized businesses.
Interesting Facts about thunderstorms
Increasing risk is what really distinguishes lightning strikes from other causes of infrastructure failure. However, today, lightning related failures are almost completely preventable. Technologies available today allow any facility, structure, or operation can be protected from loss in the event of a lightning strike. LEC’s Dissipation Array System helped Turner Broadcasting reduce electronic system maintenance by over 85%.

A direct lightning strike can be a tremendous loss, costing millions of dollars. Mostly these strikes occur on or near residence, causing havoc on the home’s electrical system, appliances, and electronics. Fortunately, there are ways to help safeguard your property, family and yourself from lightning damage.
The safest place to be during a lightning strike is your office or home. Still, some precautions needs to be taken to prevent any lightning damage. Try to stay away from anything that conducts electricity such as:
Investing in the right lightning protection system is the best way to protect everyone from lightning damage. These systems create a pathway for lightning bolts to ground itself. Without a designated path; electrical wirings, metal plumbing pipes and even the metal gas system lines become potential pathways, thus causing damage to every device connected. A tailored system specifically for the home can safely guide the strike to the ground without harming anyone or anything.
Lightning strikes near power lines can cause huge power surges, thus a surge protection device should be installed in conjunction with a lightning protection system. These SPDs (point of use Surge Protection Device) do not suppress or arrest a surge; they divert it to the ground. This provides an extra layer of protection to your electrical and electronic appliances.
Lightning damage can cause irreparable damage. Take immediate action of getting your exterior and home systems checked and then installing the correct lightning protection device.
Lightning Eliminators & Consultants Inc., are pioneers in this field since decades. Their name is synonymous with international standard protection and no strike warranty.
Did you know lightning causes more than $5 billion property damages each year? Lightning is a dangerous natural process. It is one of the leading cause of weather related deaths worldwide. A thunderstorm produced by lightning and thunder together can cause considerable damage. You can protect your business and home from lightning strikes by installing an effective and adequate lightning protection system.
In an outdated lightning protection system, electrical charge is diverted to a less damaging path to ground and is stored through electrical rods. This old method can cause considerable damage to electrical appliance, downtime and loss of product to companies. The team of Lightning Eliminators came up with the latest technology of Charge Transfer System (CTS). It is a system planned to avoid a lightning strike from occurring within a protected zone or area.
