What is soil resistivity and why is a geoelectrical study necessary?

The geoelectrical study of the subsoil makes it possible to establish the optimum configuration of the earthing system to be designed. The ground resistivity measurement makes it possible to determine the layout, depth, number and type of elements necessary according to safety and functional requirements.

AT-CONNECT: multi-channel platform for the visualisation of connected asset data

The complexity of data processing in Industry 4.0 must be able to be presented in a way that is very easy for any user to approach, which is why the structured visualisation of these data facilitates information-based decision-making. The range of SMART products and services of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. includes the CONNECT multichannel platform, a dashboard where users can view the status of their services, receive alerts and access a history of events that can be exported to various formats.


History of the IoT: what is it and how has it changed earthing and lightning protection systems?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology that allows objects to connect to the internet and communicate with each other. IoT has enabled the development of new applications and services, such as home and factory automation, vehicle tracking and real-time patient monitoring. Its application in earthing and lightning protection systems has led to increased efficiency by providing real-time and remote information on the status of connected assets.

Preventive protection against thunderstorms during spacecraft launches

Satellites are a necessity in modern life for a variety of purposes (weather forecasting, scientific exploration, long-range communications, etc.). The vehicles that place satellites in orbit are sensitive to natural and rocket-induced lightning threats. That is why NASA developed the LLCC set of rules to assess whether the weather conditions permit the launches. Since its application, incidents such as those of Apollo 12 and Atlas-Centaur 67 have not occurred again. Within these criteria, the ambient electric field plays an essential role and is measured by a network of field mills (electrostatic field sensors) at the Kennedy Space Center.
