DAT Controller Plus ESE Lightning Terminal
DAT Controller Plus is an Early Steamer Emission (ESE) air terminal, which operation is based on the electrical characteristics of lightning formation. The air terminal tiggers the continuous upward leader earlier than any other object within its protection area. This feature is called in the standards “advance time” or “efficiency” of an ESE terminal (ΔT) and determinates its protection radius. The earlier the upward leader triggers the large is the distance where the downward leader is intercepted, thus protecting a wider area against lightning (standards limits ΔT≤60µs).
