Portable Conductor Clearances Calculator

Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) has just released a Pocket PC version of T&D Pro, a field software solution that allows users to verify conductor clearances for vegetation management and much more. LTI's reflectorless laser allows a single operator to measure directly to a conductor and the top of a nearby tree or branch, so that the software can instantly calculate a clearance value.

Tree-Growth Management

Adding Profile 2SC to any line clearing program is an outstanding alternative to unsightly pruning or complete tree removal. Proper tree management featuring TGRs can reduce tree-related power outages and enhance system reliability. In addition, Profile 2SC serves as a preventive action or rehabilitative treatment for trees in stressful conditions and may also help trees adjust to urban challenges by reducing canopy growth and redirecting food reserves to other systems.
