Protection is indispensable in electrical system design

Protection of people, livestock, buildings, and equipment, especially modern IT and medical equipment against hazards are indispensable in electrical system design.

The guidance given by BS 6651: Code of Practice for Protection of Structure against Lightning practiced in Malaysia may underestimate the threat and the protection against lightning hazards.

The new IEC 62305 (MS IEC 62305) international standards series, which replaces BS 6651 addresses the shortcomings of BS 6651.ion (IEC) requirements in applications where the type of earthing have an impact on small and large electrical installations.

The speaker will introduce the changes and construction so that selection of the SPD can be better understood.

Join us in a webinar

This webinar will discuss the problems caused by lightning, the effective protective solutions to ensure electrical system reliability and business continuity and profitability, and the key changes of IEC 62305 standards compared with BS 6651.
