Lightning Prevention System
EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System is a unique lightning protection solution designed to prevent lightning strikes on metal towers with 100% success.
Unlike traditional lightning arresters/lightning rods; EvoDis® System does not attract lightning on tower, but keeps lightning away from the site. This prevents any damage to equipment on tower and avoids any service drop in the operation.
EvoDis® System is a result of over 5 years of research and 1.5 years of the development process. MTO designed EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System as the latest form of lightning dissipation technology and manufactures the system with the highest quality stainless material. This gives our clients the advantage of having a "maintenance-free" product for tough weather conditions with 10 years product material warranty. EvoDis® is the first and the only lightning prevention system tested in the laboratory and in field and achieved 100% successful results in both tests. We are proud to experience zero failures in hundreds of sites protected by EvoDis® System for the past 13+ years.
How it WORKS
EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System is based on Charge Dissipation Principle. This principle is basically emitting the charges rapidly through hundreds of sharp points instead of using a simple rod with a single sharp point such as a lightning arrester. The process keeps the surrounding electrical field strength below the threshold level, avoids the formation of upward streamers between the protected structure and the cloud by dissipating the concentration of the charges on the structure. The result is a structure that is invisible to lightning strikes.
Unlike traditional lightning arresters/lightning rods; EvoDis® System does not attract the lightning on tower, but keeps the lightning away from the structure. This prevents any failure in equipment on-site and avoids service drops in the operation.
Lightning hits a tower with no protection or protected by a lightning arrester.
EvoDis® System dissipates the charges on tower and keep lightning away from site.
EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System minimizes the risk of getting struck by lightning. So;
Lightning current can not damage the electronic equipment on the tower.
Million Volts of energy can not damage the indoor electrical system at facilities.
Service drops due to lightning damage is not an issue any more.
Structural damage by explosive pressure effect of lightning is prevented.
Sudden rise in temperature causing fire and explosions are blocked.
Electromagnetic field of lightning current can not affect the sensitive electronics on the path of flow to ground.
Most importantly; no incident resultened with injuries or deaths.
