The principle of an early streamer emission lightning conductor is to artificially generate, with the aid of an ionization mechanism, an early upward leader occurring before the other «natural» upward leaders, in order to establish a privileged impact point of the lightning strike.Diagram showing the operating principle for capturing a lightning strike using an early streamer emission conductor
Because the capture of a lightning strike is quicker than with a lightning rod, this technology can be used to protect zones spread over a wider area, thus ensuring the protection of large structures.
