active energy control (AEC)

Active Energy Control (AEC) is an actively controlled energy control of leakage currents between the 1st and 2nd lightning protection zones

. The controlled energy control acts between the lightning current arrester and the surge arrester

and istriggered by ignition electronics.

Theignition electronics are set to a response value; as soon as this is reached, they ignite and discharge the overvoltage

between the lightning protection zones. The Active Energy Control lightning protection technology was developed by Phoenix Contact.
