20 years of product experience rolled into one conductor – DEHN presents HVI light plus for lightning protection applications

Even under difficult conditions. planning engineers and installers of lightning protection systems must maintain separation distances in order to prevent lightning current flashover into a building. 
Not only metal and electrical roof superstructures, but also retrofitted PV and mobile radio systems are in a highly exposed position. They must be protected from lightning strikes whilst maintaining the separation distance. The modern continuation of Benjamin Franklin style lightning protection is HVI light plus from DEHN. The high-voltage-resistant, insulated down conductor discharges lightning current from the air-termination system safely to the earth-termination system. It is system-tested and offers numerous advantages for installation and planning.

Sustainable and safe - DEHN at Light + Building 2022

Smart technological solutions for residential and functional buildings, and networked systems in infrastructure and industry, are currently the state of the art. Maximum availability is a prerequisite here. Malfunctions with unscheduled downtimes can quickly cause significant additional work associated with extremely high costs. The reliability and protection of sensitive systems is therefore of the highest priority. Comprehensive lightning and surge protection is an essential component in rendering installations and systems safer and more reliable, and thus more efficient. At this year’s Light + Building, from 2 to 6 October, DEHN is presenting pioneering protection solutions for a wide variety of fields – be it for residential buildings, industrial buildings, data centres or e-mobility.

InnoTrans 2022: Protect railway infrastructure with DEHN

In order for rail technology to work reliably, many highly sensitive electrical and electronic systems must do so too. The continuous availability of these systems is at risk, however. Lightning strikes or electromagnetic interference fields damage or destroy conductors, control devices, modules or computer systems. Lightning currents and surges can thus quickly cause costly downtimes and disruptions. Train delays, a lot of extra hassle and extremely high costs are the consequence. Comprehensive lightning and surge protection is therefore an essential component in rendering installations and systems safer and more reliable, and thus more efficient. DEHN is presenting its comprehensive portfolio for this industry at this year's InnoTrans from 20 to 23 September in Berlin.

DEHNpatch – Surge protection for Ethernet infrastructure

Advancing digitalisation demands an ever faster supply of data.  High transmission volumes and ever improving bandwidths are a prerequisite. Structured cabling is an important component of today's network topology for information and data technology. In this context, safety is a multifaceted topic, in which lightning current and surge arresters play an important role. The new DEHNpatch DPA CL8 EA 4PPOE arrester is designed for use in a switchgear cabinet or data distributor and can handle data rates of up to 10 GBit/s.  With Power over Ethernet (up to 4PPoE with a power transmission of up to 100 W), class EA transmission standard (max. 500 MHz), status indication and the possibility of remote signalling, the DEHNpatch is equipped for modern applications. Available bandwidths can be maxxed out while undisrupted data transmission can be ensured.

For high supply reliability: DEHN presents new surge protection for residential buildings

Irrespective of whether it’s a single- or multi-family dwelling or an old or new building, a power supply that meets the latest technical requirements and safety standards for each of these cases is important and recommended. If you are diligent during retrofitting or redesigning buildings, you will ultimately have the required reliability of supply. An essential component here is protection against surges. As the latest product of the established DEHNguard surge protection device range, DEHN – the lightning and surge protection specialist – presents the DEHNguard MP type 2 + type 3 with push-in double terminals for quicker and easier installation.

Joint donation

United to help – Staff and company at DEHN SE make a joint donation for people in Ukraine

The conflict in Ukraine has had us on edge for several weeks now. It has led to unprecedented demonstrations of solidarity and willingness to help throughout the world. DEHN SE wants to help. In its own fundraising campaign, more than 20,000 euros were collected by the workforce. By way of motivation, the company had made an initial contribution of €25,000 and also promised to double the amount of money raised by the employees at the end of the campaign. In total, a joint DEHN donation of 66,000 euros was put together.

Statement of the Executive Board of DEHN SE on the Events in the Ukraine

We have been following recent events in Ukraine with great concern. What is happening there leaves us speechless. It was inconceivable for many of us that, in this day and age, acts of war could hold us in suspense - least of all directly on the external border of the European Union. Our thoughts are with the people in Ukraine and all our colleagues who are directly or indirectly affected by the conflict.

Cooperation of technological leaders

DEHN and Max Bögl collaborate on a wind tower project

How to prevent damage to a wind turbine as best as possible if lightning strikes the exposed tower? This was the question posed to simulation experts from DEHN along with the Max Bögl Group in a project. Now both companies are benefitting from the results.

PAS EX from DEHN – Safety with non-sparking equipotential bonding

Equipotential bonding is essential; particularly in potentially explosive areas. It eliminates differences in potential, thus preventing dangerous touch voltages and sparking. In order to achieve this, all external, conductive system parts and installations that could cause dangerous potential differences must be connected to the main earthing busbar.

DEHNrecord Smart Device - Creating transparency in a low-voltage system

Modern power grids consist of an increasing proportion of electronics and therefore have many components with a low dielectric strength. They are also highly interconnected. Added to this is the shift from centralised power generation to a volatile power grid supplemented by a multitude of decentralised renewable energy generators and non-linear power consumers.
