Stopping the Lightning Ground Current Threat

By | News | No Comments

The problem: Lightning ground currents, also known as Lightning Ground Potential Rise (L-GPR), occur when lightning strikes the ground in rural areas, near electronic sites that serve the telecommunications, pipeline distribution, railroad, and other industries. Even though these sites employ the best surge protection and grounding systems, lightning ground currents cause frequent, costly damage and outages. When lightning strikes the ground, its energy is not immediately dissipated in the strike area. High-voltage gradients and the resulting fault currents propagate through the earth’s surface, and a remote site’s grounding system is momentarily elevated by thousands of volts. This energy can saturate…

Alokin acquires Alset & Lightning Shield products

By | News | No Comments

Lightning Shield™ Following the acquisition from Alset, Alokin will immediately begin marketing and selling the Lightning Shield™ product line.  This product protects sensitive electrical and electronics equipment from Off Voltage events and L-GPR by pre-emptively isolating equipment.  Equipment is isolated from the AC power supply prior to a lightning ground strike, therefor eliminating the pathway for lightning to damage equipment.  Additionally, several versions of Lightning Shield™ allow users to protect equipment from sustained low and high voltage events; this is not surge protection but rather a form of equipment protection that is required in many areas due to unstable power…
