What Is a Conventional Lightning Arrester?
A conventional lightning arrester, also known as a rod gap arrester, is a device that uses a series of spark gaps to conduct high-voltage surges to the ground. It consists of a metallic rod or mast connected to an earth electrode through a series of spark gaps. When a lightning bolt strikes the rod, the electrical energy is conducted through the spark gaps to the earth, thereby protecting the structure from damage.
Conventional lightning arresters have been in use for over a century and are still widely used today. They are typically installed on the roof of buildings or on the top of utility poles to protect them from lightning strikes.
