Lightning and Surge Protection for Data Centers
An efficient lightning and surge protection concept is much more than just a few lightning rods on the roof or a surge arrester at the entrance of the building. A carefully planned concept is based on a risk analysis, effective lightning protection and individual protection requirements such as shielding, lightning protection zones or a three-stage protection principle.
In addition, standards and building regulations call for lightning and surge protection measures. EN 50600 refers to IEC 62305 which deals with the protection of buildings against the effects of lightning strikes and related phenomena.
Based on our experience, this presentation gives you a step-by-step guide to lightning and surge protection in a complex data centre system. You will learn how an effective lightning and surge protection concept mitigates the risks for data centers. Keep the data flowing by protecting important systems from damage and prevent downtime and loss of data.
