Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection System

Home » References » Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection System

An Early Streamer Emission Air Terminal (ESEAT) is composed of one striking point, emission deviceand a fixing element and a connection to the down-conductors.The area protected by an ESEAT is determined according to its efficiency as defined in Clause 5.2.2.The ESEAT should preferably be installed on the highest part of the structure. It shall be the highestpoint within the area to be protected.
