HOW DOES IT WORK?
- When lightning strikes close to a fence, an overvoltage (a few tens of kV) originates on the fence wire and spreads to the energizer, among other places.
- The input spark gap of the surge protector is calculated so that an electric arc is established for overvoltages due to the lightning, but not for fence impulses. Thus, the energy of the lightning flows towards the ground of the fence, which protects the energizer.
- The auxiliary spark gaps complete the protection, the choke delaying the arrival of the overvoltage on the last spark gap before the energizer.
- For maximum protection, the surge protector must be near the energizer. The wires coming from the energizer must run alongside each other to the lightning arrester.
