A metal structure for protecting solar panels-Angled Air Terminal

  1. 1. ANGLED AIR TERMINAL RODS An Advance Protection to PV Systems The probability of structure penetration by a lightning current is considerably decreased by the presence of a properly designed air-termination system as per IS/IEC 62305 and NBC 2016. Air termination systems can be composed of any combination of the following elements - Rods (including free-standing masts), Catenary Wires, Meshed Conductors. Roof/Ground mounted photovoltaic systems need vertical air-terminal to avoid direct flashover. JMV LPS LIMITED Leading the Nation towards Electrical

  3. 3. Leading the Nation towards Electrical Safety ANGLED AIR- TERMINAL RODS Angled rods designed for protecting ground mounted photovoltaic systems or carports with PV system on carports against direct lightning strike. The air-termination rod is fixed e.g. at the metal support structure of the PV modules by two saddle clamps, which also provide a lightning current carrying capable contact. . A distance of 15-20 cm between the saddle clamps shall be provided . The free length of 80-85 cm shall be provided. . The air-termination rod is adjustable to the inclination angle of the PV system. . The standard design is angled to 55° which corresponds to a PV system inclination of 35°.
