Kyushu Field Engineering Co., Ltd.
We offer strong lightning protection countermeasures for your electronic devices.
Our products prevent damage to electronic devices caused by induced lightning or backflow lightning resulting from lightning strikes in the surrounding area. We offer two types of lightning protection units: a switchboard mounting type, and an outlet connection type. The switchboard mounting type can be installed simply by embedding a high-performance lightning arrester inside the original box, and connecting it to the switchboard. The outlet connection type has a built-in high-performance lightning arrester inside its housing, and provides strong protection when it is used near electronic devices. We also focus on developing remote contra-rotating helicopters that apply artificial intelligence.
[Product description] Our Surge Protection Type I series can be connected to a switchboard (without any installation work). Applications include protecting lighting equipment and motor switchboards, solar power generators (below 50 kW), small wind power generators (below 20 kW), and various other control panels. Our Surge Protection Type II Series products connect to an outlet, so no electrical work is required. They can be used to protect servers, medical equipment, terminal devices, control panels, and so on. The Surge Protection series can be flexibly used for various applications as these products have JIS Class II SPDs (lighting arresters) and wiring in their dedicated housing. The Type II series in particular offers strong protection because its Class II SPD can be used near electronic devices. [Authorization/Certification] Our units were selected as trial order products by Saga Prefecture (2014). [Intellectual property] Surge Protection Type II series (patent pending). [Major facilities and equipment] Surge Protection Type I series products have been used by local municipalities, the Japan Self-Defense Forces, business offices, plants, universities, golf courses (pump facilities), refrigerated warehouses, and other facilities. The Surge Protection Type II series has been used by local municipalities, the Japan Self-Defense Forces, police stations, prefectural high schools, business offices, welfare facilities, universities, and other facilities.
[Company strength] We offer two types of lightning protection units: a switchboard mounting type, and an outlet connection type. The switchboard mounting type has a high-performance lightning arrester inside the original box, and comes with the necessary wiring. You can quickly complete JIS Class II level countermeasures simply by attaching it and connecting it to a switchboard. The outlet connection type does not require any installation work, as it already has a Class II SPD inside its compact housing. It offers powerful protection, because it can be used near an electronic device. We also aim to incorporate artificial intelligence into the control system of our contra-rotating helicopters. [Business description] We develop and manufacture lightning protection units. These units prevent damage to electronic devices caused by induced lightning and lightning backflow resulting from lightning strikes in the surrounding area. We also develop and manufacture remote contra-rotating helicopters. Our engine-driven contra-rotating helicopters are used for many purposes, such as disaster prevention, rescue missions, and observations that are difficult for ordinary motor-driven drones. [Industry] Manufacturing [Representative's message] Modern society can be said to be supported by various digitalized electronic devices. Digital technologies have made today’s society radically more convenient and creative, but accumulated damage from induced lightning (or backflow lightning) can cause significant damage to a system. This includes system downtime, failures, data loss, or other consequences that may affect corporate or social activities. Recovery from such incidents may take a great deal of time, effort, and money. Today’s digital devices are almost defenseless against lightning. We will promote lightning protection units in various fields as a protective measure. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We will expand our lineup of lightning protection units, establish a reliable supply system, and try to create and expand distribution routes by partnering with other companies. Our goal is to cater to a wider variety of needs. We will demonstrate the need for lightning protection units and their effectiveness in every way we can to enhance recognition. We will suggest the use of lightning protection units individually to companies that possess many terminal devices, with the aim of receiving large bulk orders. We will also approach government offices and public institutions, and encourage them to adopt our products as designated disaster protection units. We also aim to proceed with development of a fourth prototype of a contra-rotating helicopter, aiming at commercialization.
