How to Use Iec Risk Calculator Software for Lightning Protection
Lightning is a natural phenomenon that can cause serious damage to buildings, equipment and people. To protect against lightning, it is important to conduct a risk assessment and design a suitable lightning protection system. However, this can be a complex and time-consuming process that requires a lot of calculations and data.
Iec risk calculator software
Fortunately, there is a software tool that can help you with this task: the Iec Risk Calculator Software. This software is provided free of charge when you purchase the IEC 62305 standard on 'Protection against lightning'. The standard defines a method for assessing the risk of lightning strikes to structures and services, and specifies four levels of protection against lightning (LPL I to IV).
The Iec Risk Calculator Software is a user-friendly application that automates the risk assessment process according to the IEC 62305-2 standard. It allows you to enter the dimensions and characteristics of your structure, select various parameters from drop-down lists, and calculate the tolerable and actual risks for different types of losses (human life, public service, cultural heritage and economic loss). The software also helps you to choose the appropriate lightning protection level and generate a detailed report of your risk assessment.
Some of the features and benefits of the Iec Risk Calculator Software are:
It simplifies the complex calculations required by the standard and reduces the risk of errors.
It saves you time and resources by delivering results in minutes rather than hours or days.
It enables you to compare different scenarios and options for your structure and optimize your lightning protection design.
It supports multiple languages and units of measurement.
It provides graphical and tabular outputs as well as printable reports.
If you are interested in using the Iec Risk Calculator Software for your lightning protection projects, you can purchase the IEC 62305 standard at the IEC Webstore[^1^]. You can also find more information about the software and its features at the websites of some of its developers and distributors, such as Furse[^2^] and DEHN[^3^].

Click Finish to complete the installation.
To use the software, follow these steps:
Launch the software from your desktop or start menu.
Create a new project or open an existing one.
Enter the name and location of your structure and select its type and usage.
Enter the dimensions and materials of your structure and its surroundings.
Select the tolerable risk values for each type of loss or use the default values.
Select the lightning protection level (LPL) that you want to achieve or use the recommended one.
Click Calculate to perform the risk assessment.
View the results in graphical and tabular formats and check if the actual risks are lower than the tolerable risks.
If necessary, modify your structure parameters or LPL and recalculate until you reach a satisfactory result.
Click Report to generate a detailed report of your risk assessment in PDF format.
Save your project and print or export your report as needed.
