One of the prime components of the electrical system of a building is a lightning arrester. An ESE lightning arrester offers better protection from thunder strikes than conventional ones.

An early streamer emission (ESE) conductor is an air terminal of a lightning arresting system that catches and conducts lightning and sends it to the ground without harming the electrical system.

This lightning conductor is different from conventional lightning arresters. Its essential purpose is to provide a faster conductive point to safely arrest and discharge lightning to the ground.

An ESE Arrester offers a more extensive sphere of protection to catch lightning before it strikes the building. This arrester can protect the premises and anything inside its perimeter without any hassle.

The prime difference between an ESE and a conventional arrester is the response time. It is time an arrester takes to capture and transmit lightning to the ground. More response time signifies lower efficiency. Hence, an ESE arrester has a more insufficient response time than conventional ones.

The unique mechanism behind response time reduction is the use of stored energy generated from the static charges or ambient electromagnetic field produced during lightning. This unique mechanism reduces the response time and makes the radius of lightning protection bigger than the conventional ones.

According to the latest standards, the response time of an ESE lightning arrester is 10μs or more. Axis India offers the best range of such lightning arresters with a response time varying from 10 to 60μs. It is also ideal for preventing fire outbreaks from thunder strikes.

Hence, domestic and commercial premises prefer an ESE Arrester over conventional ones to get a bigger radius of lightning protection and reduce the response time for saving the electrical components, machinery, appliances, etc.
