Capable of tensioning overhead conductors, setting down guys, or even weighing spools at the warehouse, this Dyno was built tough and ensures overhead conductors are installed correctly.
For streamlined use in the bucket, the device is ergonomic, simple to use, and rugged. It has a horizontal readout for easy viewing, anti-glare screen, and small size to reduce burden on the lineman.
The device pairs with an optional iOS app that unlocks powerful features for both linemen and engineers. Bluetooth range is over 200 ft, allowing the device to be monitored and controlled safely from the ground.
Power poles are engineered to specific standards. If power lines are not put up to the correct sag and tension, then the engineering design and analysis is no longer valid. It is crucial that overhead conductors are installed according to a utility's standards to the correct sag and tension. Instead of flipping through large documents to determine these values, sag charts can now be loaded into the app. All a lineman has to do is input the ruling span and conductor type, and the app will calculate the required tension.
*Sag charts are critical for designing, building, and maintaining a safe and robust power grid. If your utility needs help updating or establishing sag charts, we can help get those set up. Please reach out below.*
After determining the required tension through the app, it can then be sent to the device and displayed on the screen as the "target tension" for the lineman to see. By pulling the line to this tension, it ensures the line was installed as designed, minimizing the risk for faults and failure in storms.
Once the conductor is tensioned correctly, a PDF can be exported from the app documenting install data. This allows for records to be easily generated and kept, proving overhead conductors were installed correctly and reducing liability for the utility.
This is an added feature on the app that allows you to estimate the remaining linear feet of conductor on a spool. Simply input the empty spool weight, which conductor you are weighing, lift the spool using the Dyno, and both the device and app will display the linear feet of conductor left on a spool.
