In a lightning protection system, the air terminal rod is typically installed at the highest point of a structure, such as a building or a tower. It is made of a conductive material, usually copper or aluminum, which has high electrical conductivity. The air terminal rod is connected to a network of conductors, known as down conductors, which run down the structure and are installed in a manner that allows for the safe dissipation of lightning energy.
The primary purpose of an air terminal rod is to attract lightning strikes. When a lightning discharge occurs, the rod provides a path of least resistance for the lightning current to follow. By offering a low-resistance pathway, the air terminal rod helps to protect the structure and its occupants by preventing lightning from striking vulnerable areas, such as electrical systems or flammable materials.
To further enhance the effectiveness of the lightning protection system, the air terminal rod is typically connected to a grounding system. The grounding system consists of conductive materials, such as copper grounding rods that are installed in the ground. This allows the lightning current to be safely dispersed into the earth, reducing the risk of damage or injury.
