CMCE-120 Lightning Suppressor - EMP Defense

CMCE120

Lightning Suppressor

Effective against lightning and other forms of electromagnetic pulses, the CMCE 120 is the most advanced lightning protection device on the market. With over 8000 installations worldwide utilizing this technology — and no reported strikes in over 15 years — the CMCE 120 is positioned to be the new standard in global lightning prevention.

The CMCE 120 continuously balances the protected areas electromagnetic field — downstreaming excess energy harmlessly into the ground — eliminating the development of upward streamers.

COVERAGE

120m coverage radius according to the technical specifications of item A4 of normative IEC 62305 (PART I). This was calculated with the rolling sphere method, placing the PDCE at an 18m height.

USES

All kinds of structures in land and sea, including facilities with a risk of fire or explosion (AT E X zones) and wind structures through special design (consult with the manufacturer).

SYSTEM OF CONNECTION

A system of connection to the pole is incorporated in its axis. The PDCE needs a pole measuring an inside diameter of 42mm and outside diameter of 49mm with a passaging hole of 8mm to 32mm in diameter.

MATERIALS

High-grade aluminum, and methacrylate insulator.

Operating Principles

The CMCE120 acts as a modified capacitor collecting positive and negative charges from the atmosphere, structures beneath the device and the ground, reducing the difference of potential and eliminating the development of upward streamers.

The CMCE 120 eliminates the development of upward streamers preventing lightning from developing.

CMCE-120 capacitor

Capacitor

Each capacitor has one of its electrodes referenced to earth.

The free electrode induces atmospheric charges contrary to that of the earth, balancing the charge of the electrodes which generates a potential difference.

This generates a flow of charges to earth in harmless milliamps.
