Kingsmill Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable is used for maintaining the separation distance between electrically conductive parts of the structure and the Lightning Protection System. It is in accordance with IEC EN 62305-3.
Used for equivalent separation distances of ≤0.75m in air and ≤1.5m in solid material.
Kingsmill Insulated Lightning conductor has a tested arresting capacity of 100kA lightning surge current (1.2/50μs) and it meets the requirements of IEC EN 62561-1.

The Insulated Lightning Conductor is flame-resistant in accordance with IEC EN 60332-1-2, its twisted copper core is surrounded by insulation layers of meshed cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) and the aging-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheath. The cable is flexible and ideally suited for routing in external areas, roofs, walls, and embedded in concrete.
Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable can be used with standard connection accessories for an 8mm size conductor.
The Insulated Lightning Conductor Cable can be used in conjunction with the Air Terminals outlined in our catalog pages AT:38 – 40, but can also be used in applications where it is not possible to maintain the separation distance between down conductors and the structure being protected, eg running close to photovoltaic array panels.
Conductors are an essential component of a Lightning Protection System. They form part of:
- The Air Termination Network – arresting the lightning strike
- The Down Conductor System – taking the lightning discharge to ground
- The Earth Termination/Network – safely dissipating the lightning discharge into the ground.
Conductors are also an integral and important component of an earthing system, whether this be for a power station, sub-station, cell site, solar PV array, etc.
Conductors provide a low impedance path and they must be:
- Correctly sized for fault current
- Sufficiently robust to resist mechanical damage
- Able to resist the effects of corrosion
