Cable Height Meters are a handheld meters for measurement of cable sag, cable height distance and overhead clearance of conductors. It is a modern alternative to telescopic measuring poles.
Eliminates cable contact and the use of heavy fiberglass poles
Cable Height Meter Features Quick measurements, saves time and money, No physical connection to cables or wires
How they Work
The Cable Height Meter emits short bursts of sound which originate from the cone-shaped transmitter. The microprocessor in the instrument calculates the elapsed time for the bursts of sound to be reflected from the cable back to the instrument.
The result can be displayed in either feet and inches (imperial)or meters (metric) format. To account for the fact that speed of sound varies with temperature, a temperature sensor mounted at the front of the instrument senses the actual air temperature
