Test and inspection equipment: LineSmarts is a new tool for the remote measurement of overhead lines. With LineSmarts, a tablet or smartphone can be used to measure conductor tension in less than a minute, as demonstrated by this video:
LineSmarts requires no climbing, no mechanical contact, and no complicated surveying. Like any good smartphone or tablet application, LineSmarts is designed to be simple to operate and is suitable for general use by linemen, engineers, line designers, condition assessors and project managers. The mathematic principles that underpin the LineSmarts calculations are relevant to any asset type with overhead wires, making LineSmarts suitable for use on both transmission and distribution lines.
A free LineSmarts version, which allows five measurements at a time, and an unlimited version of LineSmarts, is available for download on the Android Play Store.
