Worker Safety and Best Measurement Practices for the Electric Utilities Sector
Laser Technology, Inc., (LTI) is hosting a webinar to demonstrate best measurement practices and workflow for professionals in the Electric Utilities sector. Learn how to use LTI laser solutions to dramatically increase worker safety and the reliability of field measurements, alleviating stress that field crews frequently experience. Laser measurement solutions can also reduce employee costs by minimizing time in the field and maximizing the quantity and accuracy of the data collected. The "Electric Utilities Measurement Practices that Promote Worker Safety and Efficiency" webinar will air live on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 10 AM (MDT) and will specifically address the best routines for pole audit inventory, vegetation management and sag and tension measurements for transmission and distribution lines.
For Pole Audits, the webinar will cover how to simplify accurate data collection in the field. For wooden pole assets, this presentation will specify how to use LTI's Criterion RD 1000, a diameter measuring tool to help determine whether utility poles can handle more load. The diameter measurement can conveniently be taken at the same time and location as the height measurements, to gather data at each of the attachment points for load engineering analysis.
For Vegetation Management applications, attendees will learn how to verify potential hazards from a safe location to support the NERC FAC-003-2 requirements. For the sag and tension of Transmission and Distribution lines, LTI will discuss how installed line tension is difficult and expensive to measure and what solutions are available to streamline the measurement process and decrease cost.

LTI's TruPulse Laser Rangefinders have several different measurement routines that can be utilized for each of the applications mentioned above, making data collection simpler. Because of reflectorless technology, LTI lasers are capable of measuring directly to conductors, attachment points and vegetation from a safe location. LTI's upcoming webcast will demonstrate how the routines are useful for measuring attachment heights and service separation distances, span between poles, towers and GIS pole positioning.
Never again will you have to second guess the accuracy of your data or contemplate the safety of working in dangerous, high voltage environments. The performance and reliability of LTI's instruments and solutions will help eliminate these hazards altogether.
All webinar attendees will be entered to win a T&D Pro Laser System that includes an LTI TruPulse 360R, T&D Pro software, a BAP data collector, a tripod, and accessories.
