In our fast-paced environment, we depend on wireless and satellite communications for everything – cell phones, internet, radio, television, and data and more; reliability has become imperative. These towers are constructed of steel and designed to be the highest structure in the surrounding area in order to supply communications without any interruptions.
Sadly, telecommunication towers are particularly at risk of lightning damage and an ensured electrical surge; due to its tall stature and complex electrical makeup. A single direct lightning strike can cause physical damage and catastrophic failure resulting in substantial revenue losses.
When lightning strikes a tower the current flows downwards to the ground and can damage electronic equipment like antennae, dishes, cameras, etc. On its way down, these currents can leak and jump into nearby structures resulting in permanent damage to sensitive electronic devices and equipment.
The good news is there is a way to protect telecommunication towers and facilities from the devastating and lasting effects of lightning damage.
The lightning protection system from Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc. – The Tower Kit
It’s a hybrid package that offers a robust and cost-effective solution for communication tower to protect them from lightning damage. The protection package includes direct strike protection, surge protection, and grounding.
And we protect the towers from lightning damage by enhancing lightning rods with lightning dissipators!
Spline Ball Ionizer – this is our patented and advanced air terminal that functions as a streamer retarding air terminal. It utilizes the phenomena ‘charge transfer’ – it provides a low resistance route for the static ground charge to reach the atmosphere, preventing the build-up of ground charge to the value necessary to trigger a strike on the protected structure. In short, it exchanges ions between the air and earth keeping the local electrical field below lightning potential.
Chem Rods – another patented marvel from us; it creates the optimal earth connection with a large conductive surface, electrolytic salts, and specially formulated backfills.
Transient limiter TLX100 – this versatile type 1 SPD is primarily used for light load service entrance and subpanels. It can be installed upstream or downstream of the main disconnect.
This simple, reliable and inexpensive (compared to the cost of repair) method can protect most wireline communications from lightning damage.
LEC offers lightning protection products and services to many industries including broadcasting, wireless communications, data centers, 911 call centers, and many more.
Lightning strikes can be catastrophic for a building or any structure that is not adequately
A traditional lightning protection system consists of a lightning rod and a network of down conductors and earthing electrodes that provide initial protection to a building. When appropriately designed and installed this system carries a lightning strike safely to the ground, avoiding damage to property and life. However, it is not practical to let charged electromagnetic current near sensitive electronic devices.
At Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc., we recognized the need to design a more practical and efficient system. Through our skills and experience in this field, lightning protection system under the Charge Transfer Technology is widely recognized as the best and most advanced protection from a lightning strike.
The Charge Transfer Technology used in Dissipation Array System prevents the termination of lightning within the desired area of protection. This reduces operating cost and downtime as it safeguards against lightning damages fire and electrocution.
How we work
We offer a comprehensive set of services from the first inspection to the final installation. Our experts perform an extensive on-site survey and assess the requirements. Based on this survey our engineers design an all-inclusive protection system in accordance with subjective needs. The design of the system is a critical part of any installation and identifies all that is required to meet the set
international standards and specifications. While the concept behind lightning protection system is relatively straightforward, the requirements for proper installation can be complex.
Our industry trained professional installers complete the installation process within the time stipulated and to the highest and safest standards. Follow-up testing is carried out at regular intervals and involves a visual survey of the entire system. Electrical resistance testing is also carried out as a part of the service.
Surge suppressors are another very important part of a lightning protection solution. It adds another layer of protection to sensitive electronics from the surge of transient voltage.
We are a US manufacturer providing a full range of lightning protection systems designed to the highest standards using state of art technology and machinery.
Being a leader in the field of effective lightning protection systems, Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc. has spent many years developing and testing superior lightning protection products. Due to our efforts, we have many patented lightning protection products. Most notably is our designed Dissipation Array System which is engineered to prevent a lightning strike
Dissipation Array System (DAS)
“DAS uses a naturally occurring scientific phenomenon called point discharge to retard the collection of lightning within a finite protection zone.”
It works on the principles of Charge Transfer Systems. These lightning protection products lower the static field long enough for the lightning to terminate or strike outside the protected area.
DAS does not attract lightning it eliminates it.
There are three typical reasons for our clients to choose DAS as their choice of lightning protection:
Additionally, there are other patented lightning protection products that combine (depending on the need and the area to be protected) to provide full protection against lightning.

Every industry is constantly at risk of being adversely affected or damaged by overvoltage. One of the greatest threats is a bolt of lightning. A single discharge of lightning near a power supply cable will generate significant overvoltage transient, sometimes causing irreparable damage.
Protective devices such as lightning surge protection devices are used to offset these external influences. They have the job of safeguarding the connected systems without interfering with its operations.
How does a lightning surge protector work?
Once voltage rises above expected level, the surge protector comes into play. It suppresses the excess voltage, diverts it safely to the ground and prevents it from causing any harm. When used together with air terminals, grounding rods, these surge arrestors form an industry's total lightning protection system.
Why do we need lightning surge protection device?
This decision can be taken by answering simple questions like
Every business has different needs when it comes to keeping their systems running. An industry might require surge protection on their fire alarms while another might consider installing it on security systems and data centers.
Different types and combinations of lightning surge protection device are installed in different protected zones to meet different needs. Some arrestors are generally installed in the service entrance switchboards to protect low voltage equipment such as facility guard and data line protectors.
Installing a lightning surge protection device from Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc. ensures security of your company data, employees and facility during an unpredictable electric surge, as well as ensures continued function of critical systems.
Water treatment plants, pumping stations, wellheads and central processing plants found in water production and wastewater processing sites are highly susceptible to lightning and surge events. Even a single lightning induced spark can result in a tremendous financial hit. Worse, downtime caused by an overvoltage greatly impacts the ability to deliver the product to the market and generate revenue.
Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc.’s experience in solving the lightning protection needs of water treatment facilities have special recognition in the industry.
Normally, these structures are found in isolated locations and are a preferred point of lightning strike.
Primary hotspots include:
Furthermore, these systems are interconnected through power and telecom lines with various buildings and sensitive electronic equipment. The intricacies of these systems and their importance mean an efficient structural lightning protection, grounding and bonding and surge protection system should be installed in the facility. It will ensure less downtime, less maintenance, improved equipment performance and lower operating cost.
