ArCADia-LIGHTING PROTECTION INSTALLATION allows to create an installation project to protect the building against a lightning discharge.
The project may cover both a single-family building security and the creation of a full lightning protection system in multi-family and public buildings. The program allows to create a project, check the correctness of its execution (connection of elements and closing of circuits), performs the necessary calculations in accordance with the applicable standards and allows to prepare a final report.
This module expands the capabilities of the ArCADia BIM program with advanced functions, which means that part of the building modelling options are available in the ArCADia BIM program: ArCADia BIM LT, ArCADia BIM, ArCADia BIM PLUS.
Advanced features of the ArCADia-LIGHTNING PROTECTION INSTALLATIONS module
THE ROOF AND BUILDING INSTALLATION
The program allows to create a lightning protection drawing with the options of the conducting cable, thanks to which the roof (each of its roof slope) is outlined along the ridges, corners, baskets, hoods and other edges. After the circuit is closed, the installation is connected to the control connector with an outlet cable, which itself finds the shortest path to the downlead. Following the roof slope, eave, and then the wall of the building, it reaches the box or the control connector itself. With larger buildings an air terminal can be placed on the roof as well.
THE INSTALLATION IN THE TERRAIN
The program automatically runs a downlead from the control connector to the surround earth electrode, grate earth electrode or earth rod.
CALCULATION AND CONTROL OF PROJECT VALIDITY
Before making calculations, entering listings and creating a report, the correctness of element connections should be checked. The program has functionality that allows to automatically check the correctness of the project. If any of the elements are not connected, they will be marked. If the design is correct, you can make calculations of earth electrodes. The program performs them automatically on the basis of the drawing and given in the ground resistance options.
REPORTS AND LISTINGS
If the installation is done correctly, the report with resistance results can be generated and lists of elements and materials are inserted on the view.
