ALERTS & LEARNINGS
Powerline's damage alerts provide precise GPS coordinates for utility operators and first responders to identify and locate damage in real-time.
If a power line falls in the woods and nobody is there to see it . . .
WHY FOCUS ON
95% of all fires and outages start with damage that is mechanical.
Non-electrical failures are typically undetectable by most modern monitoring systems.
Mechanical failures are primarily lines that become detached from their safely insulated route of travel.
Broken cross bars
Loose attachment bolts
Without losing power or igniting a fire, these damage incidents are often undetectable by traditional monitoring systems.
Lines that are live, detached & undetected swing into objects that cause sparks and fire.
