Extensive research and development has allowed TOPBAS GRUP (Turkey)
to create a lightweight and low wind loading ESE system to provide a safe and efficient manner of controlling dangerous lightning energy before it damages structures or its important contents, including human occupants. By utilizing advanced technology, SIRIUS and IONIA ESE provide lightning protection to facilities that would otherwise be difficult or cost prohibitive to protect by conventional means.
The SIRIUS and IONIA ESE air terminals are externally mounted, proactive, structural lightning protection devices and are designed to activate in the moments directly preceding an imminent direct strike. The installation of a SIRIUS and IONIA ESE air terminal combines the best advantages of two systems: the direct path to ground of a conventional lightning protection system, and state-of-the-art ESE technology employed in the SIRIUS and IONIA internal design. These combined advantages ensure that the SIRIUS and IONIA ESE System provides a secure zone of protection.
SIRIUS and IONIA ESE are made of non-corrosive materials, utilize advance and sustainable technologies, maintain a 20 years warranty, and are independently tested and certified to NF C 17-102: 2011 standard. SIRIUS and IONIA ESE products protect the structures by capturing dangerous lightning discharges and safely channeling them to earth.
SIRIUS & IONIA ESE Working PrincipalThe principle of operation for SIRIUS and IONIA ESE terminals is to create an upward propagating streamer earlier than conventional air terminals or other objects on the earth. SIRIUS and IONIA ESE does this by collecting and storing ground charge during the initial phase of a thunderstorm development.
Once a thunderstorm begins creating downward step leaders, the ambient electric field intensity in the area of the ESE terminal increases. When this electric field intensifies, it triggers the terminal to release the stored ground charge, forming an upward streamer microseconds earlier than other objects in the immediate area. This development of an upward streamer earlier in time and space ensures that the SIRIUS and IONIA ESE terminal will be the target of the developing lightning strike. The selection of the SIRIUS and IONIA ESE model, placement, and mounting height above the protected area.FEATURES

As one of the leading companies in the field of lightning protection, TOPBAS GRUP (Turkey)
has invested heavily in field and laboratory testing as part of its ongoing commitment to research and development.Throughout the product development of the TOPBAS GRUP, the proto-type models were subjected to intense testing under high voltage conditions.
Following further refinements, the TOPBAS GRUP products were subjected to final testing by an independently accredited test laboratory which completed testing in full compliance with the French National standard NF C 17-102: 2011. The Final testing of ESE terminals showed effective performance as defined in this standard.
