OBVB series

The OBVB series Early Streamer Emission (ESE) Air Terminal (lightning rod) is distinguished by its ability to respond when lightning is approaching. It intercepts lightning earlier than any other element within its protection area, safely conducting it to the ground. This system is suitable for providing external lightning protection to all types of structures and open areas.

  • Offers a high level of protection.
  • Achieves 100% effectiveness in capturing discharges.
  • Maintains its initial properties after each discharge.
  • Guarantees electric continuity, with no resistance to discharge conduction.
  • It’s a lightning rod without electronic components, ensuring maximum durability.
  • Since it contains non-electronic elements, there are no replaceable parts.
  • It operates without the need for an external power supply.
  • Ensures operation in any atmospheric condition.
  • Requires no maintenance.

Installation:

  • The tip of the lightning rod should be positioned at least two meters above the tallest building to be protected.
  • When installing it on a mast, you’ll need the corresponding head-mast adapter for the lightning rod.
  • Cabling on roofs should be shielded to protect against surges and should connect to the ground any metallic structures within the safety zone.
  • The lightning rod should be connected to a grounding point using one or more conductive cables, ideally running down the exterior of the structure via the shortest and straightest path possible.
  • The earth termination systems, with a resistance ideally less than 10 ohms, should ensure the quickest possible dispersal of the lightning current discharge.
