We’ll help improve the quality and availability of the information you rely upon for decision-making. Capture massive amounts of data to be mined at will for many different purposes: power-line sag, asset condition, compliance, and more. Our monitoring solutions supply critical repeated measurements with unmatched accuracy. Tell us what you need to know, and we can provide the solution.

Measurement and management solutions for the utility industry

Whether you’re locating water valves, monitoring a hydro-electric plant, or tracking asset condition of overhead wires, we have a solution.

Power / Plants Documentation

Start with more complete data

Every jobsite presents its own set of challenges. In applications that benefit most from mass data collection, like plant engineering and design, a 3D laser scanner deployed at a power generation or process plant can reduce costs and increase efficiencies. Our scanners deliver the perfect mix of industry-leading technology and user-friendly operations for maintenance and upgrade projects. When combined with ScanMaster software, our scanners can give you a single solution to capture, visualize, and extract features from complex environments with speed, accuracy, and detail.

Reduce costs

Our products collect accurate data the first time at the field site. Models are available based on the range requirements of the target application. You can choose the optimal scanning speed/range with selectable measurement modes on a scan-by-scan basis, according to site conditions. The resulting digital point cloud accurately depicts existing plant conditions and can be shared immediately with co-workers for planning maintenance, upgrades, and plant modifications. Significantly reduce human error and rework costs on your projects.

Improve safety

Using our solutions minimizes the number of people deployed to the site for data collection. With long-range measurement capability, those operating the laser scanner may be positioned at safer distances from hazardous materials and are on site for less time than traditional data collection methods – minimizing risk and possible injury.

Enhance efficiency

Working in combination with dual (5MP) digital cameras for collecting color imagery, our customizable scan resolution defaults ensure that no detail goes uncaptured. Data is accurate and complete, and field revisits are unnecessary. After processing in ScanMaster software, simply export the file to a broad selection of formats, including our widely accepted .CL3, which supports the most-requested design, analysis, and modeling applications.

Distribution Infrastructure Mapping

Distribution infrastructure mapping

The GIS mapping requirements of a water utility are unique, given the need to capture horizontal and vertical positions with greater accuracy than typical mapping solutions can provide. This solution provides high accuracy (within 1-2 centimeters) with the flexibility and ease of handheld GNSS solutions. Take an existing map or dataset into the field, confirm or add points, lines, or shapes, and then push the data to the cloud via built-in cell or wireless connections.

High accuracy point-to-point solutions

High accuracy point-to-point solutions

Work in native shapefile formats in the field, so data conversion steps are unnecessary. The field software has been developed from a GIS perspective, minimizing the learning curve for high-accuracy data. Hardware configurations are simple, lightweight, and cable-free, making this the easiest way to get high-accuracy data into your GIS database.

Highly versatile

Our high-accuracy GIS solutions are versatile and easily configured for a variety of user requirements. Use a Network DGPS or WAAS correction for submeter work in areas such as Natural Resources and Environmental Management. Add a cellular-enabled controller for sub-decimeter or centimeter-level corrections when using applications such as Utilities or Roadside Inventories.

Integrated lightweight design

You don’t have to sacrifice durability and performance for lightweight design. The integrated design includes a GNSS receiver, power supply, memory, and communications module – all in a rugged, environmentally sealed housing. No more hardware headaches in the field!

Easy to Get Started

1

Create a Feature Code Library

Build a list of point, line, and polygon features to map in the field. Add a list of attribute fields for those features.

2

Sync your Device

Sync the field and office devices to wirelessly transfer the Feature Code Library and any map layers or images to your field device. Configure your device to high-accuracy collection using Network RTK corrections.

3

Map

Occupy and map points, lines, and areas of interest. Log attribute data and images, if required. Sync with office software and transfer data.

Short-Term Monitoring
