HARDWARE

  • Linebackers and ProxBoxes work together to provide instant and actionable insights line-by-line and pole-to-pole.  IBEW certified technicians perform installation and maintenance via purpose-built drone.

  • Linebackers are installed between each pole set for distribution (approximately 175 feet) and every 900 feet for transmission.

  • ProxBox receivers have a range of up to four miles.

TAGGING THE LINES

POWERLINE LINEBACKERS

High-performance wireless smart sensors with extremely low power consumption that use edge computing, movement and a suite of validating factors to provide critical insight into line-level issues that may or may not be outwardly visible - before and after ignition. 

Transmit over two miles

Weigh less than three pounds

Installation is by drone, and can be achieved without de-powering lines.

Runs on a battery with a 3-5 year lifespan.

RESILIENT & REDUNDANT

 

Close proximity of Linebackers allows for maximum data granularity.

If a Powerline Linebacker or battery fails – or is on the verge of failing – an alert is sent to the system operator who can easily perform maintenance with a purpose built robotic arm or drone.

If one Linebacker is compromised you still have data from tags on adjacent lines in the same pole-to-pole segment.

SOLUTION

DATA COLLECTION & DISTRIBUTION

PROXBOX

Continuously monitors linebacker transmissions and communicates over satellite or cellular networks to Recon’s cloud servers delivering location data as well as sensor data for monitoring.

 

Four mile range

 

Powered by solar and battery

 

If a solar panel is compromised, the platform can continue to operate for two weeks on battery power.
 

RESILIENT & REDUNDANT

 

If the nearest ProxBox is unavailable or does not respond, the linebacker can adapt to send information along to the next ProxBox.
