Mobile Utility Tools

Two new families of mobile tools from Advanced Control Systems (ACS) equip utilities to better manage power outages and communicate with customers while providing work crews with real-time information in the field. GridVu applications provide critical map-based information to utility crews and customers. The new POWR mobile applications provide access to detailed system data to enable crews to work more efficiently in the field and perform critical system damage assessment. The ACS mobile tools integrate tightly with the utility control center OMS, DMS or both, depending on the application and type of information being presented. The applications provide data persistence through advanced browser technology such as HTML5, ensuring valuable information is not lost because of problems with wireless networks that might arise during storms.

Underground Elastomeric Resins

Dow Electrical & Telecommunications, with the addition of its Engage polyolefin elastomers and Nordel EPDM, supplies materials for ethylene alkene copolymer (EAM)-filled cables and ethylene propylene rubber (EPR) cable constructions. These same elastomers are being used in a range of accessories that include separable connectors, splices and terminations. Engage polyolefin elastomers for EAM-insulated cables exhibit: improved flexibility, trainability and less spring back for ease of installation; thermal, wet and dry electrical stability; and improved environmental sustainability and recyclability. Nordel EPDM for EPR cable constructions and accessories demonstrate: flexibility for ease of installation and constrained space applications; EPR history of reliability; and cost-effective, well-designed accessories.

Spherical Camera Hotstick Attachment

Bubl’s spherical photo and video technology can be used for documenting construction sites to underground infrastructure and beyond. The camera and software were developed to allow consumers and commercial users to discover a new type of photography and share it wherever they would like. The technology was built to be used seamlessly across any platform, website, blog or social network. It can live stream content directly to a mobile device using a Wi-Fi connection. Photos and videos captured are stored directly to its onboard MicroSD card. Spherical content captured with the Bublcam is compatible with any head-mounted device. The company’s mobile applications enable the split screen format by allowing one to simply toggle between content views such as gyroscope, tactile and virtual reality. And a new hot stick lamp attachment for the Bublcam simultaneously charges the Bublcam, allowing spherical capture of dark and hard to see places.
