Almost every aspect of production requires electricity. Electricity is also necessary to produce other forms of energy. If a widespread or long-term disruption of the power grid were to occur, many of the activities critical to the economy and national defense would be impossible.
High voltage conductor cables may sag within reach of the public or general infrastructure due to faulty, aged or broken insulators or fixtures. Rotten or damaged poles may also allow cables to sag, remaining live and presenting serious and potentially fatal danger to the public. Gale force or high winds and inclement weather can also adversely affect overhead power lines, potentially resulting in devastating wildfires.
OverLine, our Overhead Line Monitoring System (OHLMS) monitors the integrity of overhead conductors and poles used to distribute electricity. Scalable across vast distances, the OHLMS reduces exposure of both public and operators to danger, while improving standards of distribution performance with a faster response to attend site.
OverLine will alert line sag beyond the safe limit, pole tilt beyond acceptable limits, line detachment, deflection of line due to contact by machinery such as a cherry picker or crane, or deflection of the line due to contact with trees or branches.
