SMART EARTHING Archives - Aplicaciones Tecnológicas

Self-developed tool for earthing systems 4.0, lightning and surge protection projects

Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. has developed a software with advanced functionalities for the design and analysis of earthing systems 4.0 and lightning protection systems. This software is the one we use within our expert services for erthing systems 4.0 and lightning and surge protection projects. One of its most innovative aspects is the analysis of the combined interaction of grounding and surge protection in a building.


A brief history of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how the development of intelligent models creates high quality solutions

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has ceased to be an unknown and has become an integral part of our daily interactions with each other and the devices surrounding us. From antiquity to the 20th century, from Greek philosophers to Turing and McCarthy, we now have models capable of generating photorealistic images and multiple industrial applications. This is a brief introduction to AI and how Aplicaciones Tecnológicas’s AI department is specialised in the creation of trained models in constant evolution to achieve the efficiency of its solutions which, in addition, can be adapted to the needs of any client.


Wind energy: earthing system most common problems

The wind industry is one of the most cost-competitive renewable energies globally. In an increasingly interconnected world, the sector must continue to innovate, for example through digital transformation. Smart technologies collaborate in solving the problems that, due to their characteristics and locations, wind farms face with respect to grounding systems. For this reason, Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. offers professional services for geoelectric studies and grounding 4.0 projects. Furthermore, Smart Earthing Monitoring System allows centralised and unattended monitoring of the wind turbine earthing systems and the wind farm substation.


New electronic ignition kit Apliweld® Secure +: more compact and versatile

In an optimal earthing system, the bonding between conductors must be maintained in perfect condition throughout the lifetime of the installation. Within the bonding methods, exothermic welding (also called aluminothermic welding) achieves permanent connections with high conductivity. Apliweld® Secure +, a system developed by Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. now features a remote electronic ignition system with a more compact and lighter design, with new and more versatile charging methods.
