Aplicaciones Tecnológicas has joined the standards committee CTN 221 – Wind energy generation systems of the Spanish Association for Standardisation (UNE) to participate in the maintenance of the standard UNE-EN IEC 61400-24:2011 – Wind turbines. Part 24: Protection against lightning strikes.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. has developed the precise solutions for the efficient management of grounding and lightning protection systems in wind farms, maximising occupational safety and cost savings. We are at WindEurope Bilbao 2022 presenting the advanced equipment SMART EARTHING MONITORING SYSTEM, WIND TURBINE SMART LIGHTNING LOGGER and ATSTORM®.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. will attend WindEurope 2022 from 5 to 7 April in Bilbao with our line of SMART products specifically designed to maximise occupational safety and cost savings in the wind energy sector. We will be at stand 1-D56 to inform about our innovative technological solutions, as well as the launch of an advanced product for wind turbines.
Lightning is a powerful atmospheric electrical discharge that can pose a great danger depending on where it strikes. Without proper protection and prevention, these discharges pose a risk to people, animals, buildings and electrical and electronic equipment, as well as causing environmental disasters. Although they cannot be prevented, there are storm detectors that issue the necessary alarms to take action to take preventive measures.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas offers free online courses aimed at professionals in the sector. If you want to participate in these training sessions, find the topic that interests you in your language, the course organized for your country and check the schedule.

Surge protection devices (SPDs) are designed to minimise the destructive effects of surges on electrical and electronic equipment. There are different types of SPDs depending on the technology they include and what characterises their operation against transient overvoltages.
