How often should you calibrate your CHANCE® Meters?

Posted by Chad Davis on Aug 27, 2019 8:00:00 AM

CHANCE® meters are used to detect line voltage, determine approximate phase-to-phase-voltage, check DC resistance in protective grounding sets, determine in-or-out of phase relationships, monitor leakage currents, and advise the operating condition of CHANCE hot sticks. Calibration of these meters is important in confirming their accuracy in the field and ultimately in helping to protect line personnel.

Incorrect meter readings could result in undetected or misread voltages that could be harmful to equipment and personnel.

Why Fiberglass Guy Strains are More Dependable

Posted by Chad Davis on Aug 1, 2019 3:00:00 PM

Fiberglass Guy Strains may be installed anywhere along the guy wire to help protect against stray current that may be on the guy caused by lightning strikes or other sources. These fiberglass units serve as a replacement for porcelain insulators or johnny balls, and they extend the insulation length. They offer numerous advantages, including:

  • variable lengths
  • easy terminations
  • resistance to fracture caused by brittleness
