Transmission Operating Poles 132kV 275kV 400kV
PB Weir transmission operating poles are suitable for the temporary earthing of transmission line conductors and overhead power lines within the range 132kV, 275kV and 400kV are manufactured from a strong glass fibre material in accordance with C.E.G.B. specification 43921.
The two part telescopic pole has an extended length of 4.83m (15’ 10”) and a closed length of 2.55m (8’ 4”) with spring loaded locking pegs which provide partially extended lengths of 4m (13’ 1”) and 4.4m (14‘ 5“). The pole requires an OL1 operating socket for the application of our line end clamps with long taper style operating screws.
The lower end of the transmission operating pole has an open weave hand grip bonded to it and either a carrying sling can be provided or an end plug with swivelling wrist strap can be supplied which (upon removal) provides location for a 1.83m (6’) extension pole.
The TL1 telescopic pole comprises three close fitting tubes resulting in a fully extended overall length of 7.2m (23’ 7”) and a closed length of 2.55m (8‘ 4“) and spring loaded locking pegs permit intermediate lengths of 5.5m (18’) and 6.2m (20‘4“). The lower pole section has an open weave bonded hand grip.
A 0.6m (2’) bridging earth pole is available with a rain shield/shed fitted above the open weave bonded hand grip and a swivelling eye fitting at the bottom of the pole. The pole employs an operating socket for application of our Line End clamps with Long Taper type operating screws.
