Introduction to Electric Overhead Inspections

Electric Overhead Inspections can be used to conduct inspection campaigns and monitor the condition of electric overhead assets.

Overhead lines are the backbone of the electric system because they cost two to four times less than underground lines. Unfortunately, overhead electric assets are more susceptible to weather, accidental damage, and the ever-present risk of trees interfering with power supply. Electric utilities can reduce these risks and maintenance costs by implementing a routine overhead inspection program that identifies defects and safety issues before an asset fails. Electric Overhead Inspections is typically implemented by electric utilities that want to modernize their overhead inspection program and keep track of the inspection history of each overhead asset.

The Electric Overhead Inspections solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you organize overhead asset inspection campaigns, assess the condition of assets in the field, monitor the progress of inspection campaigns, and understand the current condition of overhead assets.
