nimbus R completo

In the standard nimbus® series, maintenance is performed using the LR-Tester product, which requires physical access to the lightning rod, at the height at which it is installed.
The nimbus® R range simplifies this process by incorporating remote verification technology. This way one can check its operation, with the help of a remote control called R-Tester, without physically accessing the lightning rod.

This feature, in addition to facilitating and speeding up the maintenance process, results in cost savings This makes the nimbus® R lightning rod especially suitable for installations where circumstances require frequent maintenance at an optimal cost.


Frequently asked questions

1. How can I import a drawing and in what formats can I do it?

To import a drawing select the tool “import image as background drawing” (located in the upper bar). Supported import formats include pdf, jpeg, png...

You can use Google Earth ( to get a satellite image and use it as a reference image.

Once the reference drawing is uploaded, define its scale.


2. How can I define the areas of the different zones to be protected?

Once the drawing has been imported and the scale has been configured, you can identify the areas and structures to be protected. To do this, use the drawing tool “create new area”, define the structures to be protected and indicate the height of each of them.

If the surroundings of the structures in an installation need protecting, draw the areas with a height = 0 m to identify the perimeter to be protected.

 (An area with height h=0 m is represented in blue and structures with h>0 m are represented in green).


3. How does the lightning rod optimizer work?

The proposed protection solution is based on a lightning rod optimization calculation performed by the nimbus® project designer algorithm.

This calculation is based on determining the minimum number of lightning rods and the minimum size required, in order to completely cover the different perimeters and structures of the project. The main criterion is the number of lightning rods, weighted in turn following economic optimization and ease of installation criteria.

The result of this calculation is indicative and may not be fully accurate due to its complexity and the limited calculation time.

4. How do I assign the protection level to an area or structure?

To assign the protection level to an area or structure, you must first select it by placing the cursor on it, after which an “Assign protection level” menu will be displayed on the left.

The assignment can be done manually (See the criteria for determining the protection level in the next question):


5. What does the bill of materials include?

The bill of materials includes all the accessories, distributed by Cirprotec S.L.U., required for the installation of the lightning rods for the project. This list takes into account the percentage margin of error defined at the beginning of the process.

It can be broken down into:

  • Overall list: Specifies all the material in quantities and references required to execute the complete installation project.

  • List per lightning rod: Used to help define the installation to be implemented. Using the ID of each lightning rod, the required material for its installation is specified including the ground connection.
