Webinar: Lightning Protection & Risk Analysis Based on MS IEC 62035 – Session 1


Date: Saturday, 20 November 2021
Time: 9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. (Registration start at 8.30 a.m.)
Venue: ZOOM Application

Did you know that Malaysia has adopted the MS IEC 62035 Part 1 to 4 Protection Against Lightning since 2006 while Britain replaced BS6651 with BS EN 62035 from 1st September 2008? What are the main differences between BS6651 and MS IEC 62035? In this webinar, the topics include below:

  • Risk Analysis based on MS IEC 62035 Part 2
  • Three components of External Lightning Protection: Air Termination, Down Conductors and Earthing
  • Rolling Sphere Protection angle and mesh size according to Lightning Protection System (LPS) I, II, III or IV
  • Placement of Air Termination Rod based on Rolling Sphere
  • Definition and the use of Separation Distance 'S'
  • Spacing between down conductors according to LPS I, II, III or IV
  • Use of Reinforcement bars as down conductors
  • Welded Joints v/s clamped Joints v/s Bound joints v/s latched joints
  • Types of Earthing – Type A or Type B
  • Equipotential Earthing

This webinar will give better understanding to Engineers and Designers on the application of risk analysis and how to apply the risk analysis outcome to the lightning protection design (External and Internal).
