SOIL RESISTIVITY

SOIL RESISTIVITY

The calculated specific electrical resistance of the ground (Ohm*m) is a parameter that determines the level of "electrical conductivity" of the ground as a conductor, i.e. how well the electric current will flow in such an environment from the earth electrode.
Data on many types of soil from various sources are collected.

GREEN LIGHTNING PROTECTION - A SYSTEM OF COMPLETE INSULATION AGAINST LIGHTNING STRIKES

GREEN LIGHTNING PROTECTION - A SYSTEM OF COMPLETE INSULATION AGAINST LIGHTNING STRIKES

The fundamental difference in the operation of devices "green lightning protection" and traditional (or active) lightning receivers, is the difference in the principles of operation - the isolation of the object from lightning, rather than deliberate reception, interception of lightning on itself. This allows you to avoid the most dangerous and hard-to-beat enemy of sensitive electronic equipment and flammable materials - the electromagnetic wave from the lightning channel, lightning receivers and current collectors (the secondary striking factor of lightning).

ELECTROLYTIC GROUNDING

ELECTROLYTIC GROUNDING

Electrolytic grounding ZANDZ is designed for use in permafrost, stony or sandy soils with high resistivity (from 300-500 Ohm*m), without the use of special equipment and bulk ground. Installation and calculation of such grounding is very simple. But behind this simplicity there are high-tech and modern solutions aimed only at uncompromising quality of the result.
