The principal function of the spark gap consists on two electrodes placed at a determined distance within an insulated container.

When a discharge is producing an electric disruption between the two electrodes, a temporary electric connection is produced.

Spark gap for separation model VX-1 (with or without connection terminals). The separation spark gap is developed to electrically separate the conductive systems that should not have electric contact in their normal state of function. Indicated for the for the connection of antennae devices (TV, communication, etc…) to external lightning protection systems. Equipotential bonding between grounding systems, operating separately under normal conditions, and ensuring their connection if they occurs an overvoltage in the system.

The principal function of the spark gap consists on two electrodes placed at a determined distance within an insulated container. When a discharge is producing an electric disruption between the two electrodes, a temporary electric connection is produced.

Identify the closest point between the structure to be connected (antenna mast, grounding ...) and the down-conductor system lightning protection. Connect the spark gap between the two elements equipotentialising by suitable connecting pieces. Tighten the hexagon bolts of the connecting sleeve using a 13mm wrench. Cut off excess cable and place the other end of the cable conductor in the lower sleeve so that it is secure.
