How can we help?
The Streamer Delaying Air Terminals (SDT) are developed based on The Charge Transfer System (CTS) was recently developed to reduce the likelihood of lightning strikes directly to the premises. Its idea of preventing lightning strikes is based on the point discharge phenomenon. Analysis of the electric field of CTS was found to be 67[V/m], while for a Franklin Rod it was found to be 75[V/m]. The CTS devices were found to initiate ionization of air and hold a weaker electric field that prevents the formation of streamers.
It is generally understood that the presence and movement of space charges play a major role in lightning discharge formation and its propagation. Space charges ahead of the descending leader tip significantly contribute to such fundamental phenomena as branching, the formation of leader steps as well as pauses between steps.
With extensive research and field testing, Streamer Delaying Air Terminals (SDT) were designed using stainless steel wire with less than 0.1mm diameter, appropriate wire length and geometry at the tip of the air terminal to operate as an IONIZER that has the capability to create stable streamer-free corona under a wide ambient field range.
