BS EN IEC 62561-6:2018

Lightning protection system components (LPSC). Requirements for lightning strike counters (LSC)

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : April 2018



This part of IEC 62561 specifies the requirements and tests for devices intended to count the number of lightning strikes based on the current flowing in a conductor. This conductor may be part of a lightning protection system (LPS) or connected to an SPD installation or other conductors, which are not intended to conduct a significant portion of lightning currents.

LSCs may also be suitable for use in hazardous atmospheres and there are therefore extra requirements necessary for the components to be installed in such conditions.
