The Trimble® Power Line application provides a streamlined workflow to measure and estimate the sag of a power line without shooting the cable. It provides a conventional survey workflow to record points on both power pole and line.
The wizard-based workflow in the Power Line software helps you define key points on the power pole. Key points are trigger points that can be used to, for example, automatically create a virtual plane between points on two power poles or launch a co-ordinate geometry calculation.
The workflow guides the user through the following steps:
Defining key elements on the pole
Creating a virtual lines
Staking out line elements and adjusting the height based on the sag
