The disruptive effects of voltage spikes from lightning, poor grounding and the typical over-voltage surge that comes from powering up equipment, compromise the safety and economic integrity of a business. Protection from this type of disaster can be highly mitigated, if not entirely eliminated, by the proper implementation of a grounding, surge suppression and lightning protection system. Alltec Corporation’s Engineering Services Team help achieve this protection, save money and ultimately bring peace of mind.
http://www.lightningengineers.com/ is Alltec’s brand new web based portal specifically designed to help with power quality and lightning protection issues. The website gives detailed descriptions of common problems, the solutions Alltec Engineers provide and how they relate to different public and private industries.
Alltec Engineers use a three tiered protection pyramid for the visualization, analysis and implementation of a very effective transient voltage and lightning protection system. Each level of this pyramid represents a methodology used to protect facilities from damages caused by harmful electrical currents. Rather than treating these tiers as independent, each layer is regarded as an interlocking component forming a strong and stable pyramid. When all three tiers are designed, installed and maintained together as a total system; comprehensive facility protection can be achieved.
The new website shows samples of the protocols engineers use to gather pertinent and site specific data, the computer aided drawing software implemented for visualizing and processing that data and the “action oriented” result reports designed to complete a structured and thorough power protection solution.
http://www.lightningengineers.com/ has an animated lightning activity map detailing the current activity and severity of lightning across the US. There is also a Risk Analysis Assessment with an online form allowing users to interactively answer some NFPA centric lightning risk analysis questions to do an initial self diagnosis of their facility.
