DEHN protects antenna systems

Safely earthing and protecting antenna / SAT systems

Functional earthing of the antenna / SAT system provides safety - for you and your customers:

  • You protect people from injury
  • Your prevent technical outages, fires and expensive damage to buildings
  • You fulfil normative requirements 

 

 

Fulfilling requirements

Good to know:

DIN VDE 0855 prescribes protective measures for SAT antenna systems. Depending on the given structural conditions, this brings forth standards for equipotential bonding, earthing and lightning protection.

In addition to basic requirements, the standard also mentions how the measures should be executed, i.e. which materials and clamps should be used. This includes the stipulation of cross sections, materials and types of clamp and, where necessary, the required lightning current carrying capacity.
 
What this means for you:

Ensure consistent equipotential bonding and functional earthing for all projects involving the installation of antenna / SAT systems. This is fundamental to avoiding damage such as that cause by fire and protecting people from dangerous touch voltages.

New clamps available

New to the DEHN range are two practical, universally applicable clamps which facilitate the installation of the required protective measures.

Clamp 16 mm2
One clamp - many uses: Universal clamp for wire and cable. Just as suitable for connecting to the gutter as for connecting the earth rod.

UNI KS Connector
Flexible for various cross-sections: Universal connector for conductor cross-sections of 6 - 16 mm2.

  • Antennen sicher erden mit DEHN
    Gutter clamp | connection clamp for earth rod

    Clamp 16mm2

    Gutter clamp for the lightning current carrying bonding / connection of antenna earthing at the gutter intersection. Connection clamp for the lightning equipotential bonding connection of pipes (e.g. antenna support tubes) to the earth rod via a solid /stranded conductor.

  • Antennen sicher erden mit DEHN
    Gutter clamp

    Clamp 16mm2

    For use as a gutter clamp. The conductor is installed on the roof.

  • Antennen sicher erden mit DEHN
    Gutter clamp

    Clamp 16mm2

    For use as a gutter clamp. The conductor is installed under the roof.

  • Antennen sicher erden mit DEHN
    Connection of the earth rod

    Clamp 16mm2

    Used to connect the earth rod.

Possible applications

Example of earthing a SAT system in a residential building without lightning protection system

  • Antennerdung - Anbindung der SAT-Anlage
    Connection of the SAT system
  • Antennenerdung - Anschluss der SAT-Anlage
    Connection of the SAT system
  • Antennenerdung - Leitungsführung unter den Dachziegeln
    Conductor installed under the roof tiles
  • Antennenerdung - Anschluss an die Dachrinne
    Connection to the gutter
  • Antennenerdung - Anschluss an das Regenfallrohr
    Connection to the downpipe
  • Antennenerdung - Ableitung am Regenfallrohr
    Down conductor on the downpipe
  • Antennenerdung - Anschluss direkt an den Tiefenerder
    Direct connection with the earth rod
  • Antennenerdung - Fertige Installation
    Completed installaiton with conductor under roof

An optically pleasing and practical solution - especially suitable for retrofitting.
 

Safe earthing of SAT systems

You only need one clamp for different types of installation

  • 16 mm² conductors installed under the roof
  • Discharge via metal gutters and downpipes
  • Connection with the earth rod
