THE ENERG1CA® SYSTEM DEFENCE AGAINST LIGHTNING STRIKES
DEFENCE SYSTEMS AGAINST LIGHTNING STRIKES
Lightning is a natural phenomenon, required in nature to rebalance the energy that constantly accumulates between the atmosphere and the Earth’s surface (electric poles).
When this energy or, more specifically, the energy differential that forms betweens these two poles, reaches a level that exceeds the dielettric constant of air, it causes lightning to form that rebalances everything.
The ENERG1CA® LPS systems (Lightning Protection Systems) intervene well in advance. In fact, they are always working to discharge the electricity in the air.
Consequently, when a storm occurs, the area around the building, protected by our systems, never reaches that energy differential and prevents lightning from forming.
HOW WE OPERATE
RISK OF LIGHTNING STRIKE
Annual data on lightning strikes

Attracting and discharging the power of lightning is not an option since the following levels of power are at stake:
Instant power: 750 MegaWatt (the same as a nuclear power station)
Voltage: 15 Gigavolt (40 thousand times the power generated by an electrical power station)
Heat: 33 thousand degrees (5 times the heat of the sun)
WE DEFEND YOUR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
Our customers belong to very different sectors but with one common denominator: the defence of their electronic equipment.
OUR ENERG1CA® DEVICES
The devices in the ENERG1CA® family are used to size the lighting protection systems.
There are two areas of intervention by our protection systems: downward and upward lightning.
- Aerial heads, passive multi-range antennas, with different action ranges, designed to prevent downward lightning strikes
- A family of Aereal Boxes which, when connected to the Aerial Heads, intervene on dangerous frequencies;
- A product family to align the protective action of the heads to the specific layout of the building
- A family of Earth Boxes, also with different dissipative potential, protect the building from upward lightning strikes.
