Vulnerability to lightning - ITOPP

Simulating the effects of lightning is essential for qualifying numerous systems, especially in the aeronautical field for example. This application of pulsed power is also the most easily understood by the general public.

Based on existing norms and regulations or by aiming to reach specific performance standards (electrical, environmental, space or mobility), ITOPP designs and manufactures ready to use solutions for customers. ITOPP generators make it possible to simulate indirect as well as direct effects of lightning.

Whether it’s for designers of structures used in the construction of aircrafts or for developers of reinforced electrical systems, ITOPP provides the test tools that will enable them to study the behavior and assess the impact of "lightning" type discharges  (or attacks) on materials (metals, development of composites, etc.) or on systems that must meet specific lightning requirements.
