Lightning Protection for CCTV Surveillance Cameras

No more lightning strikes,

no more damage on cctv cameras,

no more service loss!

CCTV surveillance cameras installed on metal poles which are extremely prone to lightning because they are conductive and usually are the tallest structures around. During a storm, all positive charges on the ground climb up on these poles and emit towards the storm cloud. This process develops the lightning channel between the cloud and the pole, and all lightning current flows down to the ground through the pole and damage all CCTV cameras on it.

Lightning Arrester on Camera Poles?

Lightning arrester camera pole

Lightning arresters were invented more than 300 years ago to protect non-conductive buildings from lightning strikes. Metal structures such as CCTV camera poles cannot be protected by lightning arresters because the arrester attracts lightning strikes on itself and naturally on the pole.

Lightning strike cameras

Lightning current prefers to flow down through the metal pole instead of a tiny conductor cable, and the cameras are damaged.

Once again, lightning arresters are invented to protect ordinary buildings, not metallic structures.

Lightning must be kept away from CCTV camera poles.

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System

Lightning protection cctv cameras

EvoDis® System is the only lightning protection solution which dissipates the charges on CCTV camera poles and makes the cameras “invisible” to lightning. This process keeps the surrounding electric field lower than the threshold level and blocks the development of the lightning channel between the cloud and camera pole. Lightning acts as if the camera pole does not exist there and all CCTV cameras remain safe.
