Surge and Lightning protection are essential components when it comes to protecting people, preventing fire, and guarding against the failure of important networked systems.
According to Auke Roeleveld with R3&A Limited, the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI), advanced lighting technology, and solar-powered greenhouses are becoming critical options for developing sustainable solutions that enhance productivity. "A Surge and Lightning Protection concept for modern "smart" Greenhouses are more important than ever before to secure production processes. In this approach, the Greenhouse is subdivided into zones with different risk potentials. Based on these zones, the necessary lightning and surge protection devices and components are determined", he explains.
Surge protective devices are categorized as lightning current arresters, surge arresters, and combined arresters. "Each type of arrester has its own function in the defined risk zones and must be capable of conducting either lightning currents or surges, without being destroyed, to prevent these currents will damage the electrical installation and process systems of a Greenhouse."
Avoid taking unnecessary risks with the help of an efficient protection concept
