Avoid working in MEWPs, reach difficult locations, save time gathering clearance data

The SHEC System was designed to be used by OLE teams for precision measurement of OLE geometry & gauge clearance surveys without the need for traditional intrusive methods of data capture. The equipment works with a set of traditional set of live line working poles (LLWP’s) utilising Bluetooth technology and a rugged tablet for data capture and provides the ability to access track and live OLE between trains running in a normal timetable.

Utilising a highly accurate IP65 rated laser measuring instrument which is suitable for use in most environmental conditions, the SHEC allows the OLE teams to undertake the following measurements:

  • Measurement of OLE system heights
  • Dropper measurement
  • Measurement of clearances from OLE to ancillary conductors
  • Measurement of live equipment to earth such as OLE Portal structures OT cantilevers and bridges

The kit consists of the SHEC gauge and body, a LLWP adjustable adaptor and rugged tablet.

Live Line Tool

Live Line Geometry Tool

Fully Adjustable

Fully Adjustable

Fully adjustable between 0 and 90 degrees to take measurements between horizontal and perpendicular planes.

Bluetooth Enabled

Bluetooth Enabled

In-built laser enables the operator to record wire wear measurements in real time at ground level via Bluetooth to a paired tablet .

Reduced Costs

Reduced Time & Costs

Eliminates the need for RRV and Isolation, and reduces maintenance team sizes.

Boots Off Ballast

Boots Off Ballast

Reduces risk from working at height and avoids OLE proximity.
