Press Release Summary:
Utilizing Point Discharge Principle, TerraStatÂ® Charge Dissipation Terminals minimize accumulation and concentration of electrical charge which causes upward streamers to generate. By rapidly dissipating ions from thousands of sharp metal points, terminals delay formation of upward streamers critical to completion of lightning stroke. Made of stainless steel, corrosion-resistant terminals come in standard and medium risk protection models as well as vertically and horizontally mounted units.
Original Press Release:
TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals
TerraStat® is the latest design in modern lightning protection technology.
TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals utilize the Point Discharge Principle to reduce the accumulation and concentration of electrical charge which causes upward streamers to generate. By rapidly dissipating ions from thousands of sharp metal points, instead of simply a single point, TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals effectively delay the formation of upward streamers critical to the completion of a lightning stroke. TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals effectively mitigate the chance of a direct strike occurring to any structure they protect.
TerraStat® Models and Applications:
TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals are featured components of the Alltec Protection Pyramid, a three-tiered complete facility protection approach for lightning protection, surge suppression and grounding solutions. The system begins with the installation of a code compliant, single-point, low resistance/impedance grounding system sized to carry the full amplitude of a short circuit current safely to the ground. Next, surge protection devices are staged to dramatically filter the voltage, current and frequency surges. Finally, a well designed lightning protection system is created to protect against direct lightning strikes. TerraStat® Charge Dissipation terminals complete the Alltec Protection Pyramid by mitigating or delaying upward streamer generation and protecting the structure on which they are mounted.
