/ Use

The SUP600 and SUP600E cable height meters (CHMs) are high technology devices (using ultrasound signals) which enable you to measure, at the simple press of a button, without contact and remotely from the ground, the height of the lowest cable and the vertical distances between up to 6 power lines.

It enables you to measure the height, sag and clearance between overhead lines. The ultrasonic range finder is a safer replacement for measuring sticks. It does not come into contact with the cables, guarantees fast, accurate measurement of the height and the minimum distances between cables from the ground
