Keep lightning channel away from flammable and explosive materials
Out with the old, in with the new
Old-fashioned lightning rod systems may not offer adequate protection to microprocessor controlled equipment. ALLTEC’s TerraStat® product line provides advanced technology through the use of charge dissipation technology.
Charge dissipation uses point discharge theory to facilitate the reduction of static electrical charge buildup.
Thus, ground charges that develop streamers no longer have sufficient electrical energy supporting them to initiate the strike process.
By mitigating the formation of an upward streamer there is a greatly reduced risk of a lightning strike to the protected area.

It is a powerful indication of quality and effectiveness that thousands of TerraStat® terminals have been installed without a single customer complaint or return. Laboratory tests and customer responses concur; TerraStat® CDTs outperform other lightning technologies.
Today the plant experienced a terrific lightning storm that lasted about 2 hours. I witnessed many, probably 25 to 30, lightning strikes close to the plant in that time. The operative word being “close” as in not striking the plant!
