System 3000 – Control Streamer Emission technology
The ERITECH® SYSTEM 3000 is a technically advanced lightning protection system.
The unique features of this system allow the achievement of reliable lightning
capture and control.
The ERITECH ERICORE downconductor cable is purpose-designed low inductance, low impedance cable designed to minimise voltage build-up due to lightning impulses.This cable provides significantly higher performance than any normal HV cable and is specially designed for the control of lightning impulses.The main danger in controlling lightning impulses is the very fast voltage and current rise times following the capture of the lightning strike.
GEM (Ground Enhancement Material)
GEM is a low-resistance, non-corrosive, carbon dust-based material that helps improve grounding effectiveness, especially in areas of poor conductivity. GEM contains cement, which hardens when set to provide a permanent, maintenancefree, low-resistant grounding system that never leaches or washes away. GEM does not adversely affect soil and will not leach ions or contaminate ground water. GEM conforms to IEC 62561-7 Standard, and is identified in NF C 17-102 as an option for reducing soil resistivity.
CADWELD connections are the accepted method of attaching Cathodic Protection leads to pipes (steel or cast iron), tanks and structures.CADWELD connections weld the conductors and the structure to be protected so no galvanic corrosion can occur at the interface. The CADWELD process is specifically formulated to provide minimum heat effect on steel, which is especially important on thin-wall, high-stress pipes.CADWELD connections are also used for header cable taps, conductor splices and terminations, and ground rod connections.
Copper Bonded Steel Conductor
The copper-bonded steel conductor is ideal for use in a variety of applications including power distribution earthing and bonding; substation earthing; commercial, industrial and railway earthing; and lightning protection.The unique properties of the copper-bonded steel conductor make it ideal for both horizontal and vertical placement.It is available in standard packaging lengths of 100 meters, 50 meters and 25 meters.
